Well, it’s Sunday evening and I’ve been busy doing nothing – well, trying to, anyway. You see, my New Year’s Resolution is to do less so today, rather than running around like a mad woman, I’ve been pottering at home. Okay, so the pottering included cleaning, ironing and beginning my de-clutter, but it was quite restful by my standards... read more in my Anglo Info blog. Oh, and let me know if you take on my new mantra too!
Anyway, back to my day. Yep, you read that correctly – I am de-cluttering. Those of you who have visited my flat are probably rolling your eyes and muttering “about bloody time” – you see, another mantra of mine is “love me, love my tut” – but I’m not getting rid of it all by any means, just streamlining. A bit. Yes yes, I’ve read all the magazine articles and heard about Feng Shui and know that having a home clear of clobber is supposed to be good for the mind, body and soul, but my stuff is part of me. A majority of my nick-knacks are presents or bits I have picked up on my travels, and my books are full of inspiration and ideas that I wouldn’t want to lose. Okay, so I don’t really need to buy CDs anymore or get my photos printed out, but, despite my new Smart telly (which so far I have managed to use without difficulty thank you very much!), I am still something of a technophobe and can’t quite get my head around the concept of keeping all my bits and pieces on the “cloud” - or whatever you call it.
So there you go – my excuse for not extending my “less is more” mantra to my belongings. A friend who is much better at these things than me is Lisa – who was sporting the “Clean Queen” pinny I made her for Christmas whilst she did her housework yesterday. Look out for the photo which I will add to my “crafts” page in due course.
Well, that’s all from me folks – I’m off to watch a DVD and paint my nails. Mmm, I could get used to this new lifestyle...
Here you will find my latest news, including what I have been up to and what I have been writing (and making). Hopefully you'll like what I have to say - and perhaps I will motivate you to get creative too...
