The old trope of "cleaning up for the cleaning lady" isn't entirely silly: While you should leave the real cleaning for the person you've hired to clean, you should also tidy up - and maybe even do a few spot-checks. If it's your cleaner's first time in your home, you should also have some instructions prepared. It will make both of you much happier.

My job is 50 per cent writing, 25 per cent cooking, 10 per cent eating and 15 per cent washing stupid dishes. I hate washing dishes because it's very boring and also because it has a tendency to make my hands look and feel very sad. To combat Sad Dish Hands, I have developed the Sad Dish Hands Manicure, and all you need to avail yourself of its wonder is some cheap dish gloves and some lotion.
