Oh joyous mess!

Today I was thinking how my blog has recently been bit of a showcase of beautiful, edited fantasy. Delicious bloggy eye-candy rather than how we really live.

Oh those shiny pretty pictures that mask the real truth.

I thought it was time to re-dress the balance!

You are going to get the guided tour of my home, in all its splendid messy glory.


Say hello to my sinky mess...

laundry mess...

CAPITAL mess...

Holy fuck! mess...

Toddler mess...

arty mess....


 a tiny bit of mess...


3 year old mess...

Stinky pooo boys mess...

slighty better than it was mess...


Tracy Emin mess...


 Toothpaste mess...

 Odds n sods mess...


  Fridge mess...

 postcardy mess...

 and some....

 cheeky friends....

 who make me smile....and draw my eye away from the mess!

So there you have it. The Cleary household in all it's technicoloured, MESSY, splendour!


And one happy, messy mama!



... Ready for a relaxing bath :-)

  1. haha this cracked me up. You should start a who has the messiest house competition. I would be a strong contender despite spending much of my life clearing up the crap x

  2. those are some pretty good messes, i especially liked Holy Fuck Mess. but seriously? THAT is your sink mess? i'm very disappointed. and couldn't you show us an INSIDE your fridge mess? that's where the real truth lies.
    though, i know from experience that photos of messes usually end up looking disappointing. i think it's the lack of a 360 degree view, to encompass the mess-in-all-directions effect.

  3. I agree with Ms Calamity - the 360 degree view is needed. Your house looks slightly better than mine, slightly!

  4. It looked a lot better than mine did yesterday - but I tidied up some today! As long as you don't go into the rooms with the doors shut I am verging on respectable.
    And I loved your postcard mess!!

  9. Try again, incapapble of typing it seems today!

    Despite all the mess (which seems quite normal for 4 children) what a beautiful house! I think my house would be messier if my hubby didn't have borderline OCD, he is always tidying up and so do I now, think its rubbed off on me! Love the postcard wall and at least the laundry door closes so no-one can see it! I need a room like that over here!
