I'm drowning in the never ending chaos that is housework. Maybe it's because I'm nesting so I can't over look anything, it all has to be done. That's my ironing pile in the photo above, sat mocking me on the broken AGA. The pile diminishes a bit, then grows a bit, then attacks me so I fight back....anyone fancy helping?! The current state of play is that the pile has been defeated, but the victory will be short lived as there're a few shirts and a karate thingy drying even as I type. So the pile will be pretty full again in the matter of hours. Loving my fairy lights in my wire basket though, they really bring sunshine and happiness on a grey day.
The joy of living with little boys. This is the normal end of day scene in our kitchen. Abandoned sock (partner still not located!), firemans' hat, vehicles lined up. Quite a tidy scene compared to usual. I'd love to get in their little heads and see what the motivation behind their games is. Poor Granny blanket shoved in a crevice. It's really holding up to so much abuse or should that be love?
Breakfast sweepings, you can't see how much is there, it looks like far less in the photo. I think The Cuckoo's do manage to swallow some of their cereals, at least they seem to have lots of energy so they must do!
Can't blame everyone else in this house for creating the mess. I am very untidy. That's my paperwork pile, mid sort out I hasten to add. It's usually balanced in a precarious heap but here it's spread out in a mad method. Makes total sense to me of course.
I should be dealing with all this domestic stuff but instead I am blogging and indulging in a spot of the above. I am a country wife and mum cliche. Cornish blue china, Emma Bridgewater mug and a Cath Kidston oil cloth table cloth. I love it! Notice the Vintage Stripe blanket and the half eaten cookie? I'd tucked in before grabbing my camera. I've seen and enjoyed so many snap shots of other bloggers elevenses so I thought I'd add mine to the Blog sphere. Looks good doesn't it? Bet you wish you were here, I wish you were too.
