Weekly Photo Challenge: Chaos

Leave a comment

A few years ago we had to replace out kitchen floor-covering with tiles and the resultant chaos was hard to live with. We had to wait 2 days for the cement to dry before we could move everything back to its place, leaving us to camp elsewhere in the house, climbing over and around the mess in the dining room, fridge and stove and dishwasher and washing machine in the passage, piles of books in the sitting room. I took these photos as a record for posterity, I never thought I’d be posting them in a photo challenge!

One can’t help thinking how pathetic our belongings look where they are just jumbled together, and one can feel incredible compassion for victims of earthquakes. My chaos lasted a couple of days, then all was returned to its place; ancient towns of central Italy  have sustained devastating earthquakes in the last two weeks and their residents are having to live with permanent  devastation and loss. My heart goes out to themdsc07762dsc07768dsc07764dsc07773

I have always been surrounded by books. My parents had books, books and more books. I haunted the library as a child and when I grew up I worked in books shops. When I had children and they went to school I ran the school library. And my husband keeps on telling me there are too many books in the house. They somehow seem to pile up on every available surface almost of their own volition. I fight back and donate mounds of them to the local library but somehow it is a losing battle. I just find more taking their place! For the last eight years or so I have been wrestling with writing a novel and what a fierce tussle it is. I am about to publish this magnum opus in a few weeks time. I feel as I did when I gave birth to my children; nervous but excited!
