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. […]
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.
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 […]
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 […]
A friend, Carrie, needed money towards her holiday and as a joke I said I’d pay her to come and clean my house. Well after a while it seemed to make sense. Trying to deep clean, decorate and have little helpers all in one day is quite a task.
I’ve had this unit in my bathroom at my old house and there it was the perfect size for our needs but now we have moved it just doesn’t seem to work. It works, just doesn’t fit into our new bathroom. It blocks out the light from the window and just looks like an eyesore […]
So I sell items on eBay right? I also get a lot of deliveries from various companies. Be it nappies or other household essentials that I buy in bulk to save money in the long run. All come in good sized cardboard boxes. Which have been stored ready to send other items in. Problem is […]
Living room has been cleared out and is actually starting to look like a liveable room now and now a building site. Okay my husband and I has a different style when it comes to painting but hey the world is made up of different sorts of people. So all the walls and the ceiling […]
The idea of today was to empty the bathroom and decorate it. At the moment it still is an old stained yellow paint and full of holes that need filling.
This week has come and gone. I started to get things into order with chores and children and thought, right now to sit down and plan. I forgot that a course that I had enrolled on was starting and that takes up 3 evenings a week.
Two weeks ago I managed to sell the baby swing and couldn’t be happier. Until the person that bought it off me didn’t stop contacting me. The short of it, I put the plug in the box and sent it. When it got there, plug was missing, or so she says.
Besides it being Friday 13th. And I had to look after my friend’s children, so that was my two little girls plus another two little girls in my house and trust me when I say “loud” wasn’t the word. Could not hear myself think.
After the defeat the other day when I didn’t manage to gain a room back. I noticed in nearly all the photos one thing that seems to remind me why I am so difficult to buy gifts for.
This week sold a dress and it was great to see it go. As it had been hanging around for nearly two years. The room of doom Well today and cupboard and chest of drawers are going over to a friend’s house. The problem: they are situated at the other end of the room. The […]
In so much pain today. Steadily getting worse too. Cold wet weather isn’t helping. On the plus side one cupboard and set of drawers I got a promise that they are going. A friend needs them for her new nursery. The trouble is that they’re buried under all the stuff in the “room of doom” […]
2014 (just over a year ago) I took a look around and I saw all this “stuff” that I was surrounded by and the lack of space for my children to play. I knew I had to do something before it got any worse and with my two little girls getting more, each birthday and […]
