There are wet coats hung on banisters, ornaments askew, stray bobbles and hairbands the girls leave everywhere because they can, washing hidden behind the living room door where nobody goes, clean washing that takes a holiday on the kitchen counter, photos in frames that are too big, stained coffee mugs on a watermarked draining board and our art is hung with double sided tape without frames and in different sizes. The things you can count on here are a bouncy labrador, the sound of children laughing and often talking to themselves, the tv as background music, the sound of the washing machine whirring and wine. Lots of wine.
Do I care? Yes, of course I do but this is life. This is what happens when you live in a home and don't have the time or energy to look after it daily. This is reality and I want to share that with you so no matter how much of a floordrobe you have (honestly, mine stays that way and I wasn't quite brave enough to share), no matter how many dishes need to be washed and put away, no matter if you have books as tables - your home is where memories are made and memories make the best décor.
