My mother, like a lot of senior ladies out there, has been attached to her dressing table since 1981.

This dressing table has followed our family for 30 years now and it still is going strong, despite all the masking tape my mother seems to plaster on its sides. Somehow she looks like she never wants to part with it.

It’s been a mystery how she remains so attached to this little piece of furniture which has become her personal “me-time” space over the years.

I guess old ladies are a strange bunch.

Thus in ode to my mother’s 30-year old dressing table, here’s a little Insta’gram look into what the place holds.

And that just about sums up our little journey into my mum’s faithful and sturdy dressing table. I hope you had an enjoyable Instagram time. 🙂

And may this piece of run down, shabby furniture continue to serve up ever more precious and beautiful moments for my mother in the future.

Here’s to you, little table and to me mum!

Happy Mother’s Day!

In real life, I am a television writer and producer...er no...scratch...a television director....noo, scratch....a media loser.....wait, that doesn't sound quite insulting enough....... OK, ahem. In real life, I'm an idiot box expert with a penchant for the creative. In short, I'm a loser with no focus or direction in life. I just go where the creative flow takes me. Mostly it takes me to clogged up drains and stinky oceans but it's going.......going.....somewhere. And this blog is an expression of that mindblowing roadblock. Creative frustration is a great motivator and here is a result of that.
