The post I read yesterday was fun and asked for a "reality check". In my Facebook profile picture and some other photos online I'm not wearing any make-up so there's no point in me posting a selfie without make-up. So, here are two things that everyone who visits my house in real life knows: 1. I previously wrote on my old blog about the vortex that is my hot press. I still can't offer you a photo of the full extent of the chaos because it
2. I have never revealed this online: Brace yourself! I cover up my new tablecloth with my old one to keep the new one clean. Yes, I do. Real-life visitors to my house often say things like, "ooooh, we're getting the royal treatment today, you have the old tablecloth off". I will explain that it is because they don't have children with them or because my children have gone to bed. Or, it could be that I think they might take photos while they're here.
Can you see the difference? The old one is covered in paint and other unidentified stains and tears and the new one is perfect. Sometimes, after the children go to bed I actually remove the old one so I can sit at the new one and then I put the manky one back on again for the morning round of madness.
When I was taking these photos earlier my husband asked me why I was looking in the kitchen window. I told him the truth of course: That I was taking photos for my blog and if I took the photos from the other side of the table everyone would see through the window (I only put the curtains up on that window in the summer, yes, that's true too) and all the crap outside it would be revealed.
