According to a 2020 DailyMail article:
Tony Blair has revealed he hasn’t done housework, laundry or cooked a family meal since 1997.
The former prime minister and Labour leader, 67, claims it was ‘impossible’ to return to ordinary life after leaving office.
He told The Sunday Times Magazine he hasn’t done a weekly grocery shop or even driven a car since the month he entered Number 10.
‘My life’s not been normal since moving into Downing Street,’ he explained, adding that it was difficult to resume normality after office ‘because then you have the whole security apparatus around you and it just changes’.
The family have had no staff working at their seven-bedroom rural Buckinghamshire stately home – which Blair hasn’t left in 11 weeks – since March.
Though the ex-PM’s cooking skills have stretched to an omlette, which he made for himself and his son Leo, 20.
Cherie claimed that when she first met her husband, the first thing she would do when she went to visit him was ‘strip the bed, make the bed, and generally try and tidy up the place’.
