Tower of Clutter

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. […]

School Summer Holidays 2018 Approaching Fast and free printable

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 […]

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.

Today marks the anniversary of the first year living in this house.

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 […]

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 […]

Cleaning service

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.

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 […]

Wall art sold plus few other stuff went

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 […]

What a day… So yes all these ‘baby’ items must go.

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.
