BSL Glossary - Crowded Cottage

Lying around - example

There was a children's party and all the food had been beautifully laid out in bowls and platters and nice dishes. The children were ushered in to have the food. They all piled in, loaded up their plates and ate it as fast as they could. In no time, all the food had gone. But there was loads of food lying around. It was terrible - there was plenty of clearing up to be done.
