My life is messy.
I suspect everyone’s life is messy. But we never share the mess.
We never proudly proclaim how untidy our life is in public. Magazines and TV shows never show houses where you can barely see the kitchen bench for all the stuff on it. Even my ‘Inspiration for our Home’ pinterest board is full of images of pristine rooms and neat and tidy lives.
Is it just me or would your house never measure up to these ‘clean and tidy’ expectations… not even if you spend an entire day cleaning it?
I am mostly ok with the mess that is our home and our lives, but I still feel a little uneasy about sharing it.
Do you see that photo up there? Of my beautiful new kitchen bench… covered in crap, and worse, covered in crap food that we treated our kids to while on holiday. That is a very good representation of my life, that bench is. Sometimes it is somewhat tidy, often it is pretty messy and sometimes it is covered in complete crap, but it is never completely clear and clean… because my life is messy.
Is your life messy?
Share your mess on your your blog or instagram and join in with Real Life Wednesday this week, or feel free to share anything you like, the messy, the quirky, the boring, the funny, the difficult…. the little things that make our lives perfectly imperfect.
As always there are no hard and fast rules for this. If you blog you can link up below. If you are on twitter or instagram you can share using the hash tag #reallifewednesday (add @katepickle when you do so I can find it!). You can even post a comment or share a photo on my facebook page if you like. Don’t worry, you don’t have to post or share today, you’ve got all week till the next one.
