Mental Illness Let’s Talk You’re Not Alone

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 […]

Outsmarted by my Confident Child and I’m Proud

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.

Why I drink cold coffee ☕

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 […]

My sincere apologies

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.

What I’ve come to realise

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 […]

Been busy

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 […]

Finally! Listing on eBay again

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 […]

Pushing forward

This week has been a challenge to get through. Monday – I turned into 1950’s mother. House spotless upstairs and down. Children and husband fed a good healthy dinner and all was well. Then after the girls had gone to bed I did a spot of decorating in the living room. Tuesday – house was […]

Cardboard city

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 […]

Need to move on with planning and doing

Day 59 : I’ve listed more stuff up on eBay but I still haven’t managed to make a solid plan to get on with the massive task to ‘actually’ clearing out everything. There seems to be so many things happening at once and today all I have managed to do is two loads of clothes […]
