You don't really want to meet me...


Work in progress...


Crazy, crazy, crazy last 24 hours! We decided to get a new built in wardrobe installed in our bedroom. The new wardrobe gives us double the hanging space and so much extra room! This means that hopefully our bedroom floor won't be a depository for clothes and mess anymore!

Part of getting a new wardrobe meant that we had to pack up the old one! This involved staying up late organising and packing away clothes (and culling)! We also had to move around all the furniture in our bedroom so that there was room for the wardrobe to be set up and installed.

This morning I was rushing around in my messy cleaning clothes, reeking of bleach, with unbrushed hair and piles of clothes from one end of the house to the other. Then there was a knock at the door and I assumed it was the wardrobe building man. Instead it was the beautifully put together, super organised Romy ready to deliver my lovely prize!

So this is my first ever experience meeting someone from the internet and I can only imagine the sight she saw! Bubby was waking up in a very loud grump, there were piles of clothes everywhere, I must've been a ridiculous sight in messy clothes and with bleach as my perfume. Of course, I had forgotten that she had planned to drop off my prize or I might've at least brushed my hair!

Oh the shame of it all!

So after all of this I realise that the illusion of myself that I have tried to create on the internet has been shattered! I am actually a frazzled mess a decent amount of the time! This is why none of my child-less marriage-less mortgage-less friends talk to me anymore I imagine - my frazzled messiness coupled with disorganisation and vagueness has ended my cool factor I fear! Oh Romy I apologise for what you encountered this morning! One day we will have to do a "do over" and I promise that I'll actually be presentable!

  1. Most of us are a mess Lisa! And it's never the days that your house is immaculate and you perfectly groomed that the knock on the door happens, never I tell you!

  2. Ha! You poor thing - that's my worst nightmare, unexpected (or forgotten!) guests turning up and seeing how I 'really' live rather than how Iive when people arecoming round ;-)

    Thanks for you comment. I googled that shell line and this is their story. http://www.aldeburgh.co.uk/visual_arts/shell_line

  5. I often end up with people turning up unexpectedly at 11am and I am still in my pj's!
    I am sure Romy didn't mind in the slightest!

  6. Just today I got busted by some council workers in a dirty shirt, my most disgusting trackie dacks, ugg slippers, my hair was completely wild...and this was mid afternoon!
    Oh well.
    Congratulations on your giveaway wins!

  10. I am a mess most of the time too. The new wardrobe sounds like it's going to be so nice!

  11. I ALWAYS look a mess, and my house does too!I'll let you in on a secret - most people usually do as well! My mum is a total neat and organisation freak, and whenever we arrange to go down there her place is SPOTLESS. I rocked up completely unannounced to drop off a pressie the other day and Mum and her house were in complete disarray! So everyone has their moments, don't you worry!

  12. Lisa, I told you not to give it a second thought....and you wrote a post about it! In order to prove that I am not always 'beautifully put together and super organised'....sorry I'm giggling as I typed that....I wore my bathrobe and ugg boots to do the school run on Friday and posted about it here: http://hobarthousewife.blogspot.com.au I dedicate it to you! And just in case that's not proof enough I just opened my front door to another school mum wearing the same bathrobe with my hair in a towel. Rx
