When you have children it does not take long for your once tidy and organised house to become a bit of a mess.
Nothing is ever where you left it (except crap. Crap is always where you left it. Every-bloody-where). You tidy up by shoving things in cupboards and you never seem to get around to that big ‘sort out’ you have been planning for the past two years.
If this sounds like your house, you may recognise a few of these things:
1: The Drawer of Random Crap (often turns into the Three Drawers of Random Crap).
2: The Stuff For Charity You Never Get Around To Taking To The Charity Shop.
3: The ‘Floor’drobe. Because who has time to hang things up?
4: Washing Mountain. Is it clean or dirty? The Sniff Test is the only way to decide.
5: The Random Drawer of Wires – you are not even sure what they are for but you keep them ‘just in case’.
6: Because putting toilet rolls IN the bin is way too much effort.
7: The Art Pile. Crap the kid’s made, you feel too guilty to throw away.
8: The Bathroom Shelf Of Stuff You Might Use One Day (largely consists of hotel toiletries) .
9: The Gift Bag Bag That Keeps On Giving.
10: The Bag of Bags. You can’t throw them away, you can’t seem to remember to take them to the supermarket so you are stuck with them. For life.
12: The Shoe Rack.
13: My husband and I love to watch something dirty on the TV once the kids are in bed…
14: The Room Which Nobody Must See (think, massive random drawer of crap).
15: ALL the bloody socks. Everywhere. Where do they come from?
16: Where are all the sodding lids?!
If you house is also full of crap you are not alone – we are only human – you can read my guide to human parenting here!
