All that cooking, cleaning, darning, sewing, looking after sick children, looking good for your hubby when he came drifting in after a day at the officeait's always been a tough life as a housewife. This affectionate romp through women's toil and trouble over the past 120 years puts housework under the spotlight and shows the myriad ways in which resourceful New Zealand women dealt with the tyranny of keeping house - and keeping sane.
