Apologies for the silence you lovely lot and thank you for taking time out to read about the latest bodily function my family has produced these past few months! We’ve got a few posts coming up to fill in the blanks of what we’ve been up to. The plus side of being too hectic to write is that it usually means stuff is happening that is worth writing about, three cheers for a silver lining aye!
I start with the most boring and, if you know me, most unbelievable reason for our absence online…I have actually become an organised person. No, honestly. It’s like I’m nesting 6 months after the fact. Before Florrie was born I urged Trevor to paint the living room one evening, my pregnant eyes could no longer behold duck egg blue and the baby must enter the world with a lounge 3 shades lighter than ‘Nana’s Pearls’. That was low maintenance, every day my darling husband has had off in the past month has been spent overhauling our house. The result however is everything has a place, is clutter free and has genuinely been cleaned within a hygienic time frame.
It’s obscene, I even ‘keep on top of things now’. My bedroom used to be the only room of the house my mother told the cleaner to avoid because she was too embarrassed by the state of it. Now I clean other people’s houses, my mother would fall down laughing if she could hear me now! In true blogger fashion tomorrow I will even ‘be that person’ who shares tips on how to get your crap heap together and be the crazy domestic goddess you always dreamed of…
But let me leave you with 2 disclaimers; It takes so much freaking time to be an organised person and if, like me, you are unable to focus on multiple life tasks everything else (blogs, brushing your hair, stringing a sentence together) could well go out of the window. Secondly, friends and neighbours, please do not pop round this evening because you will find me sat in the corner surrounded by piles of washing and my own personal ball pit. Because some nights all you want to do it order pizza and sit in a graveyard of toys and that’s ok.
