More sorting out :-)

I've been using our local Freecycle network to get rid of our excess stuff and have just sorted out getting rid of our dusty old bikes. We haven't used them in years and aren't likely to use them again any time soon, so they might as well go to someone (less lazy lol) who can make use of them. Which means there will be more room in the cottage/garage at the bottom of the garden too.

I think today's next mission is the dining room!! I walk into our sorted out lounge and feel so light and airy, but when I come in the dining room it still feels so oppressive and cluttered! Its full of unwanted clutter, paperwork and general stuff - it won't be soon!! Mwahahaha :-) If I keep this up we won't have anything left lol

when you are finished with your place would you mind flying over and tackling ours? I think it would help the time pass for you.

i'm hoping to do a bit of the same this weekend - it feels so good when it's done

now if i can get the men out of the house so i can add some of their things at the same time that's the key!

Hi Kristine,
If you pay the airfare I'll be there lol. I'm a slow worker and needs lots of Cadbury's chocolate to keep me motivated too :-)
I've managed half the dining room so far! And I deliberately do the sorting while the kids are out of the way so I can be more ruthless! Mwahahaha :-)
Good luck tackling your own sorting this weekend and hope you manage to find somewhere to send your men, so that you can do it properly lol.
Love
Janet

Hi Suzanne,
Never thought of nesting lol - you are probably right!! I remember manically ironing while belting it out to Tina Turner when I was in early labour for Drama Teen!! I've not got that bad yet, I'm just trying to clear a space for all the New Child paraphenalia!!
Not sure what to say to your second message?? Was that from Isabella or a cat lol??
Have a great weekend
Love
Janet
