More De-cluttering

I think I am getting the hang of it.  I have thrown out stuff that I have for ages and not used for ages but might use one day tut tut!  My home is looking less cluttered.  Still have a little way to go but I feel refreshed.  I need to do other rooms this coming weekend.

One problem I have is keeping to one room at a time.  I must confess that I get side tracked and this means it may actually be taking me more time than it should.  Oh well upwards and onwards.

Back to work tomorrow - oh well soon be Christmas!!  Oh and I love it!

I am trying to de-clutter my home.  Easier said than done I found out.  The biggest problem I faced was the fact that both my husband and I are book lovers.  My home is full of them.  I must have thrown out 15 and put a pile aside for my daughter, most of which was cookery books. 

After an hour or so there many books remain although they look a lot tidier.  So that was the front room.  In the bedroo I could not find any books to throw away and I have a cardboard box full near my bed and a bookshelf!!

I have also de-cluttered a cupboard in the front room.  I feel like I have a long way to go but I am pleased with what I have done so fat.  I also feel the need to just empty the whole home and start again its full of rubbish which I do not seem able to throw out.  If any of you have any tips I would be very very grateful.

Winter Blues

I still don't seem to be able to shake myself out of the doldrums.  Still working hard.  Feel that the flat is a mess, needs doing up but we are so tired.  Cannot afford to get someone in to sort it out.

Busy week last week at work and the week before. I had to work yesterday afternoon and at little this morning. This week looks like its going to be busy this week.  At the High Court in London this week for a case, am excited and a little nervous at the same time.

Did a pile of ironing last night and the housework is nearly done.  I should be feeling happier but its so dark and horrid outside.  Off to see my sister and her family later, it is my neice's birthday tomorrow and I am taking a present round.

On the subject of presents I have bought some Christmas presents,  I am also going to use some of the vouchers I have saved up over the year for pressies too.  In terms of food I have, cake, sweets, and Christmas pud so am getting there.  I do not have a hamper this year after the debacle one year where that company went into administration.

Well I am off now to see if I can cheer myself up!!
