Another journey around the sun…

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

The last of Christmas 2016

I usually save all the paper and ribbons. No more! This year the cards and tags have been saved digitally and now everything is headed for the appropriate recycling bin. 

This lovely gold ribbon is the last to go (I like shiny things 😎)…

Day 011/365

Glittering sink!!! Naturally. We’ve been away all weekend and then we ate an early dinner out. No chance to get dirty 🙂

Decluttering has stalled, although we did get rid of the recycling straight away. Last time it sat in the hallway for a couple of days…

My next project is to work out which space to work on. The kitchen bench is the best bet – makes the whole room look nicer when it’s clean.

Baby steps, baby steps!

Day 005/365

I end my day once more with a shiny sink! Don’t get all excited – this has happened before… After about day 8 the wheels fall off and everything starts to return to the previous chaos. The happy dance will come if I get through a whole month with a shiny sink every night!


Magazine and Comic -> given away to a colleague!


Yet another printer cartridge -> sent for recycling!

Daily total + 3, running total 15 items 🙂

I’m off to bed now! Last minute gig has come my way… busy day coming up.

Day 004/365

What a great Sunday!


My shiny sink

This is what I woke up to 🙂


My shiny sink, fully equipped. Note the utensils on the left – that’s on the list of things to be decluttered!


Jars decluttered – sent to recycling

The day ends with a shiny sink, 10 jars sent to the recycling. That puts the total count to 12, not too shabby in my book.

My week coming up includes bookclub, work and more work, and an extra special weekend. Hopefully I get a chance to do some decluttering of the digital variety this week!

Day 002/365 — 23/08/2013

Day 002/365

Task Completed: Shiny sink!

De-cluttered: two printer cartridges from the office that had been waiting to be sent to the recycling centre for over a month.

Total items de-cluttered: 2 (it’s a start!!!)

Other miscellaneous stuff: changed the blog theme one more time, updated the widgets. The Engineer is away for the weekend, so Mr. 14 and I have been planning how to amuse ourselves … meanwhile we enjoyed a dinner of salmon and oven roasted Brussel-sprouts. Yummy.
