Messy house v spotless house v showroom condition house
Is it only me that gets annoyed that our house is messy, then more annoyed/paranoid when you visit someone’s house and it’s all tidy, then MORE so when the next house visit reveals a showroom type condition/layout/content?
I’m starting to think I’m lazy with the tidying/decorating, but in reality I’m struggling to see where I’d find the time/money.
Anyone else live in a DIY-pending-kids-toys-clothes-everywhere kind of state?Posted 4 years agotrail_ratMember
Haha, this was our dilema last week, we had the adventure show in filming …..
My house is a pepetual state of diy atm….. As i. The upstairs doors currently live behind the front door,the skirtings from the whole hall at there also, some of my doors downstairs dont have stops on as i run out of wood for that , none of the architraves i have up are stained / varnished , i broke a tile in the floor fitting new door posts…..heres hoping they just show the living room…

we moved about 18months ago, we have a 3yo and a 6month baby, and the builders have built a new kitchen but only finished just before Christmas… so yeah we’re like that too – ours isn’t filthy there’s just a lot of jobs to do, all the timePosted 4 years agocrewlieSubscriber
We were always going to get things sorted when the kids left and we retired and had more time. 18 months later it’s still a tip….just too much to do that’s so much more interesting.Posted 4 years ago
It is nice on the few occasions it’s tidy (usually just before we go away, and what’s the point in that!))ourmaninthenorthSubscriber
Mainly messy, though pretty clean (we have a cleaner).
Which is really getting on my nerves. I make the same sort if mess in the same place, but Mrs North makes different mess in different places. Consequence is that the house quickly descends into a piggy.
And never mind Miss North who, even at 3, already treats every flat surface as a dumping ground.
I blame the parents.Posted 4 years agoscaledMember
I’ve got bikes in the front room, riding kit hanging off most of the radiators from the commute and the living room and my daughters bedroom seem to have more toys than she or i know what to do with.
There’s also pictures my 3 year old has drawn blue tacked to the walls everywhere.
I wouldn’t have it any other way, the plus side is I quite like hoovering the carpet waaaay more than the laminate flooring in the old house. Weird.Posted 4 years agocrikeyMember
Love messy houses, me!
Went for a ride with friends of a friend and ended up inadvertently going back to a house that had been trashed by 3 kids, 3 cats and a family life lived to the full. I lay on the carpet after moving the Lego and felt like part of the furniture; houses are like bikes, if they aren’t worn out and used, they should be.Posted 4 years ago
