Reality Saturday

I've read on several blogs (including Sarah's and Floss's) in the past few days about maybe more 'reality' posts showing the less perfect sides of life and the homes of bloggers.  So I've bitten the bullet and decided to be one of the first to show a real side of my life.

I am a 3rd generation corner heap person - meaning beside my main sitting space I have a heap of stuff that belongs to me that I use.  My grandma's always contained her knitting stuff and my Mum's heap consists of reading glasses and books. Mine, well take a looksie for yourselves;

and a close up for even more effect ;)

This spread of stuff contines to any area I use lots - am not even going to show my bedside table!  However my desk space I somewhere I spend lots of time either browsing the internet, blogging or just catching up with my college work;

Right thats all I'm showing - all future pictures will be back to the more carefully arranged blogging style.  However is anyone else brave enough to show us their reality spaces??

Off out to fireworks tonight - is going to be cold so its probably a case of looking like a walking mound of clothes!!

A-hah! Ben is fond of quoting Pam Ayres, and her poem about 'Girt Heaps of Stuff' is relevant here, as it is in our home too! I took a stunning photo of girt heaps of stuff in our home yesterday, which shamed me into tidying up, of course! I am saving the photo in case someone comes up with the 'Show the Rough Bits' event that they've been talking about...

It looks like a home should look. Well that's what I tell myself when I look at my corners which are just like yours.
My Dad says i'm just like my Nan, for her it was her knitting stuff, for me it's my sewing, magazines, books, need I go on 'hehe'.
Have a great weekend

Right, you're right. I haven't blogged all week because I've nothing bloogy to show- it's all reality wall-to-wall here this week. I'm going to take a photo of my bed right now- or rather the heap of nonsense lifted from every surface in my room today so that I could clean. Bed actually invisible. Deep breath...

You should see my pile on my coffee table next to where I sit. It's pretty disgusting. I love that bunting by the way.

Glad to see you joining in the celebration of stuff and mess! I have a sewing box just like yours, too!
