A domestic goddess I am not (no matter how much I try a kid myself!).
I love a sparkling clean home, but I just don.t want to have to go to all the bother of making it so myself. (Hello cleaning fairies, where are you?)
My windows have been unwashed for so long that they are now decorated with lovely lace-like cobweb curtains and the areas under the couches have developed their own eco systems.
It is strange because I am a stickler for organisation and everything being orderly and put away, but actual cleanliness.......nah! I can't be fussed!
So it really didn't come as any surprise that whilst I was taking these pics to show off my new skirt,
I discovered piles of crumbs near the dining table, a blob of jam gathering fluff and trapping small insects, and this little fella loitering in my posing zone.
A little solitary pea.
As it has been a while since we have actually had peas I can only wonder at the adventures this little guy has been having, rolling around my floor and being scuttled about here there and everywhere.
I gave the wee pea a good talking to and popped him outside to continue his adventures.
Talking of matters besides peas and my domestic ineptitude, don't you just love the print on my new skirt from my shopping day with the husband.
A little orange, green and blue to play around with.
It is a homemade lovely and fits like a dream but I may need to tweak it just a smidge as the pockets sit a little funny (and surely it couldn't be my hips!) and I wouldn't mind it being an inch or two shorter.
It is deliciously light and twirls and dances beautifully.
That pea was very lucky not to get squished with all the prancing that was done.
The skirt comes with its own belt, but I thought my blouse needed a lift and so used the belt as a little neck bow.
Can you see the little pea trying to hide under the sideboard?
So today I have grand plans of giving the floors a good clean, washing piles of laundry, tidying the bedroom.........or I could just watch all of the Arrested Developments that I am catching up on. Hmmmm, choices, choices.
Are you a domestic goddess?
Or do you have strange bits of vegetable matter living in odd corners like me. Go on, share!
