I’ve been spending the last couple of weeks working on de-cluttering and tidying parts of the house. I have been working on our bedroom – this feels like the best place to start. If I can create a calm space to sleep in, then I will have more energy to do other things.
I’ve broken the job down into smaller tasks. I started by clearing all the surfaces and the floor. This has immediately changed the atmosphere in the room: it just feels more restful. I still have to go through the drawers and the cupboards, but I am just going to do a small amount at a time. Each night after work, I just went upstairs and did about 15 minutes sorting and throwing out.
At the weekend I started doing a thorough clean, even dragging the bed out so I could get into every corner. Unfortunately in my excitement I managed to blow the plug up when I pulled too hard on the wire.
It feels like I’m making real progress at last. I even managed to find a few things which had been missing for a while such as my other thin glove and OH’s cycling bag. The challenge now is to keep things from getting out of control again.
Have you had a spring clean?
Until next time, Tawney x
