Anna Fiske

The Cleaning Lady

— Are you rich, or something, since you’re hiring a cleaning lady? her friends ask Lotten.
–- No, Mom and Dad just get so tired because of work, and then there is so much hassle with two children, Lotten responds.
But who is she, the cleaning lady? What's it like to have a cleaning lady at home? And what will it be like when she’ll vacuum in Lotten’s room?
