Another journey around the sun…

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

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!

Broken promises — 27/01/2014

Broken promises


Remember yesterday when I said that I had broken some promises? Items 4 and 5 refer. Shopping Strike and more out than come in. This past weekend into our house came a new toaster and new ironing board. The old items are still loitering in the hallway… threatening to tip onto unsuspecting husbands, dogs and children.

The plan is that next time I am driving anywhere I’ll load the car and drop into the recycling centre. Perhaps I should load the car regardless of when I will actually get to deliver them.

What’s your advice?

Decluttering in 2013 # 2


Farewell to towels that have followed us around for far too long. Donated to recycling centre.


Farewell to sheets and pillow cases that didn’t match and weren’t even used as emergency sets.

Donated to the recycling centre that also has a workshop where old things are given a new lease of life!
