For me, Halloween has to be my favourite event of the year. I just love dressing up; having parties; and getting together with family and friends. So this year I had a search online to see if I can make this year a little different because, well just because… Do I really need to have a […]
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 […]
With the school summer holidays approaching fast and not managed to sort out a family holiday or anything to look forward to. Keeping the children happy and occupied is going to be a task and a half. Depending on the ages of your children and the age range, this adds that extra stress when trying […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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.
Things started looking good when my husband and I got to the back wall. I was rather excited to see the floor.
