I have made an effort to go through our things and our life in a systematic way. Room by room, each cupboard, each shelf has been sorted through, contemplated, cleaned, rearranged and some has been re- gifted and passed on. Even though we have been in this cottage for less than a year, still the clutter started to erode my brain. I still have a bit to do.
Is it just that I am mid forty Mama that sometimes I feel it hard to keep up? Very broken sleep of course does not help. Little things do help though. Like taking that afternoon nap when little one sleeps and not continue to do housework, clean, blog, paperwork. Also those simple things like putting on some hand creme on to those aging hands, drink more water and less caffeine, maybe even washing my face with some nice cleanser before bedtime and putting on some divine night creme.
The other night I impulsively did an online clothes order. I hope the sizing is right. Felt a bit guilty but cannot wait till it arrives. I quite liked sitting at the screen and co-ordinating my outfit in my own quiet time.
It is very icy and bleak outside with these gale force westerly winds. The days are very short and it is nice to all huddle together as a family.
Off now to catch up with what all my friends have been up to.
