When we put up a pic on social media of one of the MFM team’s lounges – in its usual, toy-filled state – and asked mums to share what theirs looked like, at that very moment, we were inundated with responses.
TV presenter and MFM Awards judge Anna Williamson joined in the chat on Instagram saying hers is “full of plastic!!!” and lots of you happily shared snaps of your own homes.
Some were surprisingly tidy, some (expectedly) full of toys – but all were real, everyday, lived-in living rooms.
Take a look at 10 of our favourite living room snapshots…
