SELF PORTRAIT TUESDAY
So I've never really been one for sticking exactly to the rules. It's the 1st of March (Happy Birthday, Hannah - my eldest niece is 16 today!) and the Self Portrait Tuesday topic has changed for the month but I'm still going to use February's "warts and all' theme.
The photo is of my kitchen rubbish bin. I don't have one. I love those Brabantia stainless steel flash ones but I can't justify the $300 spend on a rubbish bin. And any other stainless brand seems second best. And sometimes I see the Brabantia bins in a half price sale. But $150 is still way too much to spend on something to hold the disgusting rubbish that comes from our kitchen. So.... I have a plastic bag in the sink that gets filled and thrown out to the outside wheely bin about 3-4 times a day. Needless to say in our new kitchen, if we ever get one, I am going to have one of those cool bins hidden in a cupboard so no one can see it.
(Another confession - I have not had a clothesline for 7 years - through two houses. Yep - everything goes in the dryer or on the line in the garage or (just occassionally - on the verandah. And no, our clothes and towels and stuff don't look any different to anyone elses!They are clean and white and talk of needing to dry things in the sun to keep them naturally bleached white and bright doesn't cut it for me!)
