I’m fairly confident we’re not the only family that does this; whilst tidying up downstairs we use the stairs as a dumping ground for everything in hope that someone will pick it up next time they’re passing and put them away. Who am I kidding?
In reality, we all walk by it without a sideways glance on an average of 10 times a day. The only time it gets taken upstairs is when I’m running around like a loon on Wednesday mornings, tidying before the cleaner arrives and 9 times out of 10 it then just gets deposited on our bed. Yes, I do this every week and I know it’s ridiculous. I wouldn’t want her to think we are pigs!
However, a couple of days ago, I was walking down the stairs carrying Madame and didn’t spot the underlying danger. I slipped on one of the items and fell down the last 5 stairs. Luckily, I landed on my ass so no one was hurt. Once the initial shock passed we did have a right good giggle.
Can you spot the culprit? It looks sweet and innocent but is a death trap in disguise!
