It was the night before work
And all through the house, everyone was stirring, but thankfully - no mouse.
It's universal, right?
On the eve of your holidays being done and dusted, there's an anxiety about the year ahead.
Who wouldn't love to run off to Majorca and spend their days swimming laps at their leisure, keeping up to date with best-selling books, and with the only problem in life being a tan line.
I have had such beautiful, long, lazy weeks at home since Christmas. Nothing too decadent. Instead I've been making piles of stuff around the house:
- tidy away
- craft drawer
It might not look like it, but I have spent many hours sorting through stuff. Trying not to be sentimental. I've been ruthless with artworks, but kids clothes and books is what I find difficult. I am attached to my children's old clothes and books.
It's ridiculous I know. I try and just keep a couple of bits, but it's hard. I don't know how to do better.
Anyway, hi ho, hi ho, back to work I go - tomorrow, so game over with my tidy town. But in the meantime, if you've got any ruthless, low-down, dirty tactics I can apply to my downsizing attempt at decluttering - I am all ears (and my husband will thank you!).
How can I do better?
