|#wotw|purge


I'm still off work and have been signed-off until next Wednesday. In-between extreme bouts of lethargy, I've surprisingly had periods of energy and restless feet!

I've managed to put this to good use by purging lots of clutter. I've sorted and re-organised our craft and activity supplies, I've made a jolly good start on clearing some clothes and our bedroom is starting to feel a bit more serene again. Our recycling bins are full and its a lovely feeling!

I also went to my Grandparents house with my Dad to help him clear the house for the new owners. I must admit I thought I'd be upset when the house they had built 60 years ago was sold, but surprisingly I feel nothing really. Poor Grandma can't visit so Dad's having to make a guess as to what she'd like to keep along with the obvious, photos, jewellery etc

We did laugh when Dad said he'd found 18 kettles, all broken and put back in their boxes, bless Grandma, no idea what she thought she was going to do with them :)

Maybe I'm scared of inheriting my Grandma's hoarding habits and that's what gave me the extra energy to have a purge! ;)

  2. 18?! That's a lot! That would panic me into purging, too, I think! I do love week's where you get on top of things and de-clutter, and I can feel one coming on myself! Thanks for sharing with #WotW x

    1. ha ha I am proud to say that I'm sure I don't have any kettles, but I am guilty of hoarding LOTS of craft & activity bits ;)

      Good luck with the de-cluttering x

      Good luck with your de-cluttering x

  5. We ve been on declutter mode this month as well! I like to do this at least once a year and the post Christmas lull always seems a good time to do this. I m still working on our craft supplies though it s going to take me some time to get them into a more organised state! Multicraftingmummy.

    1. Ooooh craft supply de-cluttering is the worst isn't it? I always get so much inspiration it's a little counter-productive x
