Organised chaos

Hey All,

Just a very quick one today as I’m about to leave for work (last day before five days off Yey!)

When most people think of chaos they feel uneasy, stressed and almost scared but I wonder how many of us actually have to live in genuine chaos on a daily basis and actually are quite used to it.

When I was shouting across the playground at Nate this morning as he was playing football and very nearly late (one in reception, one in year one is hard work) I thought about those mums who breeze past with well behaved children and what they must think of me screaming at my son on yet another morning with him not only not acknowledging me but quite obviously choosing to ignore me.

Chaos, that’s what they will think! I then came home for a quick sit down and breakfast, I didn’t have time this morning before the school run due to Leo and another morning issue where he would rather make a pond than wash. When I looked around my living room, it’s clean, tidy (the cleaner came yesterday) but still in utter chaos. There are bits and pieces, ornaments, cushions, magazines, flowers in vases, stars (you know how I love a star) and pictures all over the place. Every surface has some sort of electic art installation that I have lovingly placed over time. 

I realise not only does chaos define parts of my family life but also my interior design! It may look a bit cluttered and dare I say it all over the place but I tell you what, I know where everything is and I wouldn’t have it any other way! 

Have you embraced he chaos in your life?
