The Gallery - Me right now #thegallery

I get an email each time Tara posts to her blog and at the time this week's Gallery theme post dropped into my inbox, I was watching tv (think it was the local news) and flicking between Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest, all the while, trying very hard to ignore the basket of laundry that needed putting away and the basket of laundry that needed ironing.
I managed quite well...the ironing still needs doing :S but I did eventually put the laundry away!


Check out all the other entries into this week's Gallery. I can't wait to see them all because I'm very nosey!

  1. Multi-tasking is best when doing things we like as opposed as things we should, isn't it? ;o)

    1. It was a nice evening I must admit. Kids were away, hubby was away helping his mum so I had the house to myself :)

  3. It's amazing how long you can put the ironing off by checking those sites and then checking them again and again and again. I do it all the time.

    1. The only job I really don't like doing is the ironing...which is why it's still not done and now it's even bigger :S
      Really must tackle it tomorrow!

      I appreciate your comment, thank you xx

    1. As well as ironing, I should be getting the rest of the laundry done but that'll only make more ironing....it's a vicious cirlce!

  8. I love the multi-tasking! I'm exactly the same never ever just sit and watch tv, always using the laptop, iPad or iPhone too and feeling guilty about the housework that needs doing... :)

    1. Yep, same here. Hubby's says I can't say I watch tv because I don't, I listen to it while being on the laptop!
      And yes, the guilt is always there, like now because I haven't filled the dishwasher yet. The girls and I spent a lot longer playing top trumps than we usually do and I'm behind schedule now!

  9. Twitter and Facebook have a lot to answer for. My house would be clean without them.

    1. I'm sure if I stopped using them both I'd easily find something else to replace them and the housework would still come second! :)

      Oh dear, I'm sure it must sound like my house is in a right state! It's really not that bad, honest!

      Thanks for your comment :) xx

  10. You have my life. I took a pic of my son this am (it's his birthday) and behind his head was a radiator with a massive pile of socks and knickers on them. Nice.

  13. You have captured this really well. I love the glow from the screen but yet you can still see the room really well.

    1. I have to be honest and tell you that I did lighten it a little with Picasa. The original was very dark and this afternoon I decided I had to make it a bit clearer.
      I'm using a new phone that doesn't have a flash and I'm still trying to work out how to take good pictures inside!

      Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate your comment :) xx
