If Tracy Emin can do this with her bed, then I can do it with my table. It will still be like this in a week's time if someone wants to take it away and pay me a lot of money for it.
Notice attempts at healthy eating with the fruit bowl full of oranges. Also, culture and current affairs with today's copy of The Times (partially hidden).
The flowers in the vase are past their best but they were a wedding anniversary present and I like to get my money out of things. Crystal vase a wedding present from my sister. Small woollen thing to the bottom left of the pic a knitted necklace Eleanor made at her grandma's. If you look closely you can see strands of wool coming out of it which you can use to tie round your neck when you go out.
Etch-a-sketch hidden under pile of books. You will notice that all the little shapes which you use to make patterns with have long since been lost. Torn bit of paper, maybe somebody has started to make something and then lost interest and then wandered off. Scrapbook full of pics of pop stars, David Beckham on the front. Blue Teddy with the nightcap on that Eleanor takes to bed. Jacqueline Wilson book.
Place mats obviously left on the table at all times because somebody can't be bothered to put them away. Lazy.
