It seems like ages (& it has been) since I last blogged.
The reason – I (& the MOTH) have been busy, busy, busy. Since our return from holiday – it seems like we have been running around, cooking up a storm, working & studying & a little crafting along the way.
Study – yes I have gone back to school – a mid-life crisis perhaps – LOL. Anyway I have taken on my Cert IV in Training & Assessment. So will be hitting the books, learning legislation, being swamped in acronyms, organising presentations and just delving into the unknown.
To prepare for this, I (we) have been cooking up a storm – stocking up the freezer with casseroles, mini quiches, soups, a few treats so when I get snowed under by homework/study we can relax and still have something comforting to keep up going. Thankfully & luckily the MOTH was a whizz in the kitchen, and while I created he chopped vegetables, sliced & diced, tidied up and slaved at the sink. So it was also a joy to spend so much time in the kitchen.
In addition, I have started to cull my wardrobe. Attempting to rid myself of the clutter, and things that are now far out of date, well-worn and YES – don’t fit anymore. It is a start. I still need to de-clutter a few other areas also. Even the craft cave – yes that was semi sorted about a year ago – but is still in dire need of a proper ????? make over. I had a revelation recently, and now I can tackle the clutter with a bit more ease. I always had a reason to save items. The old line of I plan to lose weight and it will fit again – I think many people have used that one, or I might need that one day, and seeing as some day has not come around for years – its gone. So as I progress and reduce my “things” or “friends” as I call my belongings, I can better plan and utilise space. I have also managed to find a few empty drawers in the cull. It is a work in progress and it will still taken time – but I am worth it – and feel good about it…….
So let the culling begin…… well continue …… watch this space ……
