A Matter of Mess

I came home yesterday evening, stepped carefully over and around the milling kitties, and went into the bedroom.

Where I found a scene of chaos. There were clothes all over the floor*, jewelry, hair clips, toiletries and makeup had been swept from the dressing table onto the floor, bags were strewn about and a pile of books had been collapsed.

A burglary? No.

A cattery.

But I'm not sure which was worse - the fact that the cats had induced chaos in the bedroom.... or the fact that my first thought on seeing it was, "Sheesh I'm so untidy. I don't know how Husband puts up with me."

It took me a little while to realise that not ALL that mess was mine...

*Okay, I'll admit it. This one's me. The rest is the cats, I swear.

They were just providing you with the imptetus to tidy ;-)
Was just over on Julie's site rereading the excerpts from Featured Attraction and Being a Bad Girl in an attempt to curb my impatience, then as I often do, I clicked on your link from her blog and my eyes played a trick on me.
I could have sworn it read

I now walk through the door (coming home from work) every day, not wondering WILL I find something destroyed, but WHAT will I find destroyed? Only in my case it's a puppy. *sigh* Good thing they're so cute, eh, Anna?

ROTFL - of course, if this was our house, I'd BELIEVE it was the kitties - they're cute, but they have a knack for chaos too *g*.
