Make yourself at home! Here is my personal space on the web, where I will try to put my thoughts and feelings into words and I show you how even someone who hates cleaning can become a decent housekeeper. But here is my story first…
My name is Lana Jane Fox and I am 27 years old. I am from Eastern European descent (Bulgarian grandmother, grandfather and mum), hence my first name ‘Lana’. My mother is a midwife and my father is a maths teacher. I love languages and I am trying to learn Spanish (that explains the title). All my life I have been a single child, which according to many is a blessing. Last year I graduated from the Australian Institute of Criminology, but that’s by far not the best thing that has ever happened to me, nor is my greatest accomplishment.
I met Steven Fox 5 years ago in a coffee shop in Elsternwick, Victoria and he has been my best friend ever since. I read somewhere that “Marriage is like having a sleepover with your best friend every day of the week” and we felt this is exactly what we wanted for us. He popped the question on my birthday and that was the best present ever – it is true what they say, that the greatest gift comes in the smallest box. After that we didn’t wait for too long and got married in the summer of 2012. This was the day on which we moved in together and I became Mrs. Fox – a clueless, but happy housewife.
The only thing is… I hate cleaning. I really, really do, just like I hate maths. All my life I believed that a well-dusted and clean home is a sign of a wasted life. Thank God my perceptions and habits are now changing. In this blog you will keep track of my long journey to cleanliness and domestic bliss. I share all my experiences as a housewife, my moments of inspiration, my DIY projects and crafts and my most embarrassing cooking and cleaning incidents. I can assure you a great deal of all that is pretty amusing!
Being young and married may seem foolish, difficult and a handful, but most of all, it could be great fun, if you know how to make the most out of it. It turned out that the same is true for cleaning and organizing. Who knew?
