Am waiting to greet my fourth maid in as many months... Now I have to go through the entire 'house-training' rigmarole, teaching her how things are done here and if I am lucky, not having to remind her about it every day for the period she decides to stay here.
Keeping my fingers crossed that I get a pleasant lady, who is half-way decent to my baby when I am not here and who can cook and clean passably.
And, God, can she please stay for six months at least? A year sounds too greedy to wish for!
P.S. I believe the maids have a sixth sense about important projects/deadlines/meetings at work... believe me, that's the very day they will announce their 'resignation'.
