So anyway, with my new found spark of optimism burning in my chest I decided to tackle the pile of clothing in the corner of our bedroom. Mostly mine, I have to admit and mostly clean, mostly summer stuff and mostly a huge enormous mess that mocked me every morning.

This picture isn't it, I couldn't share the real mess, heavens no. What would you think?

It's gone now. I bundled it all onto the bed and if we wanted to sleep tonight I had to sort it out. So I did. My foot with it's stupid plantar fasciitis is paaaaaainful tonight after standing on it for a few hours but I feel a little lighter for getting that one job out of the way. It's true, decluterification is good for the soul if not for the spellcheck. Next on my list is the back bedroom/spare room/George's room/new baby's room.... oh ok, junk room.

I don't think we'll ever be minimalists. *sigh*


  1. Decluttering is good for the soul, but hard on the brain and body! I'm going through similar circumstancs - moving. Sigh.

  2. Oh, I have one of those too! Well, actually mine is only partially in the bedroom, it's actually taking over the sitting room (which we never use, but embarrassingly enough you can see from the lounge room, so when people visit...), it's all clean, and I can NEVER seem to get on top of it! It's actually my challenge for today (but that hasn't worked before) and then I read your post!

    Well done!

    And speaking of Ciaran's room/new baby's room I did have some strong moments two days ago, where I went and put away a bag of 'hand me down' newborn's clothes that my sister had sent up with my mum when they came to stay the day I went to hospital.
    I now have an abundance of newbie onesies so I won't have to worry about shopping for any newborn on the agenda. Not sure how I feel about that!

    No minimalists live here either!

  3. I have a pile.............. a bbbbbiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiggggggggggggggggg pile too.

    I don't want to start it lol

  4. Ooh- will you do our place next?

    Are you taping your foot? It can really make a huge difference.

  5. Decluttering is soul-cleansing...but even I do not get around to doing it often!
