Another journey around the sun…

My 51st year (and beyond) … heading towards a simpler existence (or just getting on top of it all!)

2017 with a rocket!

I’ve come home today feeling excited to start work on getting organised. It’s not the first of the month or the first day of the week, it is just the first day.

Baby steps folks, baby steps!

The journey so far… — 20/06/2016

The journey so far…

If you read my about page, you’ll see I was on a mission. Not sure what happened, but I have not come very far. As they say, today is the first day of the rest of your life… or something like that! It can only get better…

Now, I’ll let you into a little secret, I would like to get married this year. Properly married. Preferably before I turn 50. Which is quite soon. And I want to start that new married life with as little baggage as possible.

Wish me luck.

Reboot, June 20th 2016

It’s been so long since I’ve posted on any of my blogs. Lack of enthusiasm is the main reason. Now that I’m here I’m a little unsure where to head first. I do need to update the ‘about’ as I am heading rapidly for the big FIVE-O!

Since my last post:

  • I’ve moved office. Twice. Now I operate from home.
  • The Business has picked up nicely. Now I don’t need to rely on non-business related work to get by.
  • The piles of stuff around the house are still there.
  • The piles drive me crazy.
  • It’s still hard to through stuff away.
  • I decided this morning the recycling centre will get at least one visit from me this week.

The plan for this week is to work room by room, cupboard by cupboard. The first cupboard is empty and now there is a huge pile of linen on my bed awaiting processing 🙂

An empty cupboard!
Unsorted linen... bright isn't it!
Unsorted linen… bright isn’t it!

Day 060/365

Well that’s gone well wouldn’t you say!!! As far as I can see the last post was day 28, about a month ago.

This morning I was busily mass deleting emails from the last couple of days when I cam across this little gem from The Daily Post: When Life Gets in the Way. It’s full of very timely hints and tips… like cutting myself some slack and not beating myself for not posting. Anyway, I have three other blogs that need caring for also, although this is the only one that I say would be daily based!

So what have I been up to lately you might wonder? Well I’m busily extracting myself from one of my volunteering efforts. When things settle back to normal I’ll participate more, for now I have more important things to put my energy too.

The de-cluttering has stalled although I think I’m getting better at daily de-junking if that makes sense.

Now it’s back to the keyboard. I have a heap of assignments due this week and the clock is ticking!

See you later!

Day 021/365 — 11/09/2013

Day 021/365

Hmm… Three weeks in and I’m on a slippery backwards slide as far as the “shiny-sink-get-out-of-chaos” project goes.

Status: same as yesterday :/

The out-of-the-house part of my life is full on though. It’s an excuse and I really need to get more organised so that things start to run smoother all round. Oh well, one day at a time!

Sleep tight and don’t let the bed bugs bite 🙂
