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. […]
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 […]
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.
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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.
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 […]
I’ll be honest I haven’t made any effort on clearing out in over a week. Mainly because of the hassle I received with the baby swing and didn’t expect to get anywhere because of it. Someone must be watching over me because the items I had left on eBay, all but two sold. I’ve been […]
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.
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” […]
