Clutter, Declutter, Clutter…

I’ve just dropped Mighty Girl and Danger Girl back at school for the new term, and am taking the morning to do basically nothing before going into work this afternoon. I’m looking at the living room floor: huge box of rail track¬†with random¬†stuff piled on top; paper and scissors and glue; bags and toys and musical instruments; top trump cards piled on the sofa; blankets and soft toys draped everywhere; bookcases half empty with books spread around the house…

Yep, the children have definitely been home for a fortnight.

For the two weeks before the school holidays I decluttered and sorted, tidied and organised, and for the first time in years I felt like I’d achieved something.

Two weeks later and I don’t want to do it all again. Besides, I have about eight weeks of blogging to catch up on…

  1. I hope you gave yourself some ‘me’ time before doing anything else. School holidays are exhausting!
