The state of the house

The state of the house

I can cope with a certain level of chaos - quite a huge amount of chaos in fact. Then a switch suddenly trips and it drives me bonkers. An extra pile of paperwork, a wardrobe's worth of clothes thrown over the sofa, a toy pile that has exploded over more than half of the room... and suddenly I'm seeing all the unfinished promises all over the house - the attic that needs sorting, the 'storage solutions' that clearly haven't solved anything...

What I rarely want to do though, is spend much of our limited family time tidying up - I want to play, go out on an adventure, do something FUN. And I make my husband come with us. So why I then have a go at him for not having had the time to tidy up the house, I don't know...
