Have you ever heard of the tower card? Years ago I was with a group of friends and we had our tarot cards read. I’m not saying that this is a good or bad thing, just that it happened. I wasn’t paying attention, to be honest, but I do remember one card that came up. […]
In the beginning. A long time ago and a very different me, went to collect my daughter from school and her teacher release my daughter and another girl to me. Her teacher had been convinced by the two of them that they were having a sleep over at my house that evening. I had never […]
I have discovered that I seem to be surrounded by mothers struggling with mental illness and most can’t even bring themselves to get help. It saddens me because I too have suffered for a very long time, but I went to get help because I didn’t want to make my nearest and dearest suffer from […]
St David’s Day, in Wales this is a big deal to dress your children up, and they have to look their best. It’s like photo day but in national dress costume. I’m trying to get both my daughters presentable. Dressed, teeth brushed, hair brushed and the typical school rush before the actual run. Outsmarted As […]
I haven’t posted for a while now because I was trying to find myself and my purpose. Since last August, I have got involved with a community group called Families Together and in December volunteered for the local community hub. I can’t tell you how much has changed because the biggest thing is my focus […]
When you have a want to feel like you must work towards your goal, but when it comes to having children, this is a whole different thing.
This used to be my personal blog on my journey of de-cluttering Finding new homes for useful things I sell mostly through ebay.co.uk and now started with Gumtree. I have many items that are brand new from unwanted gifts or items such as clothing that has been out-grown by my daughters. My aim is to […]
A short explanation to why my site is called “Oh Positive Mum”. Two things I discovered when I became a mother. One was during pregrency and the zillon blood tests and what not. I found out my blood type. I’m sure you can figure which type I am. The other was when my eldest daughter […]
It seems that whatever I do. I seem to be chasing my tail. Laundry is continuous, I’m constantly making food and then clearing up. I never seem to stop. Dishes to be done and then put the away. Tidying up the toys after the kids play. So when do I get a chance to sit […]
I’ve had so many setbacks since my last post. Not with clearing up my house by blogging it. I have however starting using the hashtag #clearingupmyhome on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook etc. Now I just have to find a way to include that into this site and I’ll be laughing.
Every week I’m faced with mountains of clothes that I have had to wash dry and then sorted ready to put away. My eldest daughter is meant to put her own away and same goes for my husband. That leaves my youngest and mine to do. Unfortunately this never goes to plan.
On the 22nd February 2016 will mark the two years that I have been on this downsize, declutter and new way of approach to things and stuff. I look around my house and see so much still here and how I haven’t made any progress. Then something happens like my eldest daughter gets ill. TMI […]
Made it to my target this week. I set myself a goal of listing seven items onto eBay this week. It is now Thursday evening and I am really tired but nine new items have been listed today. I didn’t manage to make a start last week because my daughter broke her foot and so […]
Last week I posted a dress at the local post office that I had sold on eBay. Great stuff something has left the building! That alone made me super happy. Then the person that served me at the post office ended up charging me less than what I put on eBay for postage. I didn’t […]
While I was busy, cleaning the kitchen. Tiding up after the children. Making countless meals for everyone. I heard drilling and other things moving up stairs. Such as heavy metal music, being played so loud I think the area could hear it. I wasn’t about to investigate as I husband didn’t seem to be in […]
It’s nearly a year since we have lived in this house. And I still feel like I’m losing the battle with the room of doom. I do however now have a desk in there and have more access to many things that I am (too) slowly listing onto eBay. Doesn’t look great does it. It […]
Wow time has flown. Summer holidays with the girls were eventful. My husband surprised me with a over-night trip to London for my birthday. Fluffy (eldest daughter) started swimming lessons and I’m so proud to say she has taken to it like a fish. Bubbles (youngest daughter) has adapted to nursery and no more tears […]
Yes finally! I’ve started listing on eBay again. Updated two items that weren’t selling and hopefully now they will go. I’ve set myself a target of listing five items a week. This depends on if enough items sell because I could end up with what appears to be a shop of items. As much as […]
Monday – procrastinating wasn’t the word. Ended up spending nearly a whole day at Romany’s (Pudding and boo) and we were discussing the surprise gift that my husband had bought for me. Later on in the day, it came. A A5 filofax in bright pink. When I say bright, I mean Filofax A5 Size The […]
