The thing about a mess is that it is usually indicative of fun being had. Mess is, symbolically, a wonderful thing! A little mess = a little fun. Huge mess throughout the bedroom, loungeroom, kitchen and yard = BEST DAY EVER! We move from one extreme to the other. This is this evening's moderate mess.
It's not all his mess. An erupting volcano of colour and texture was constantly changing shape over the weekend as I played with fabric combos for my latest batch of pants. See them here - the last dozen or so.
