Fun Monday III in which I reveal my inner slob
In this Fun Monday, hosted by AOJ and the Lurchers, we are asked to show our bedside tables and drawers. I'm not showing anybody my drawers, but I'll show you the mess I see on first awakening.
I put Vaseline on my lips every night before I go to bed and lotion on my hands. I then check I've set the alarm about a thousand times (I have forgotten to do this from time to time). The picture is of my husband and two children and was taken about seven or eight years ago. I have other photos of the kids on my dressing table.
The jewelry box is one of two. I asked for a big jewelry box one Christmas but got two smaller ones instead. I use this one for the jewelry I wear most often. As you can see, it's an overflowing mess. Every once in a while I go through it and tidy it up.
Next to my side of the bed is a big pile of books. Some I've already read and need to put in the bookshelf. Some I plan to read at some future date. Some I'm reading now (the doorstopper Until I Find You by John Irving is holding me up at the moment).
I also have a handy piece of furniture called a "chair-robe." I use this to pile all my clothes on before I go to bed. Dirty clothes go in the clothes bin, obviously. But some aren't dirty and are therefore wearable again. Rather than waste wardrobe space with them, I pile them on the chair-robe. On the top currently is the new swimsuit I bought to take with me when I go skiing. It fits me very well and was a bargain at £9.
So there it is. My boudoir. I really should tidy it up, but I spend TOO MUCH TIME blogging.
