Boring people live in immaculate houses ?!?!?
In my job I go into lots of folks homes very day, and I'm forever hearing 'sorry the house is dirty/messy'. To which I always reply that I just houses by the smell and not how much crap there is lying about. There's a world of difference between a messy chaotic house that's like that because, hey people have to liv there, as opposed to a filthy shithole that no one bothers to CLEAN. Believe me I see it all. As long as ill accept a cup of coffee, take it as given that your house is ok.
My house is cluttered and always has remnants in the morning of the children getting ready for school, after dinner I always like to relax and watch crap on the tv so I tend to do the pots the next day, which can be embarrassing if you get an early visit from the meter reading man, but it's never filthy, well I don't think so. I always wonder though where do minimalists put all their stuff. My son had a friend in primary whose mother's house had nothing anywhere the only books I ever saw were in a cabinet, she had the full set of the Encyclopedia Britannica in a purpose built cabinet, no one was allowed to actually read or look at them they were purely for show
I like to think that in my house if the children broke anything I would never be cross because nothing matches in our house and that's how I like it.
Edit: I might kill them if they broke my Retrobike mug, but christ that cost me £11
You can't buy happiness but you can buy a bike and that's pretty close
