No room, no room!



It's official there's no room in my life for the things that I would actually call my life!
All that time set aside to literally put the house in order was totally monopolised rescuing someone else from their own disaster.  Now December is looming and I just have a handful of days to myself in which to get anything done when there isn't half a dozen other people trying to get a piece of my time.

So, where to go from here?  Do I set aside all forms of creativity - crafting, decorating, photography - it seems the obvious thing to do, but then what is left of me?  Just a shell?  What do I do?

Reality Check

My home looks like it belongs to one of those hoarders they show on TV.  We've been turning out and doing the place up for a year now, progress is slow.  Watch out horrific pictures of disorganised living coming up. 

This is the craft area.  My course work is taking up more time than I anticipated, you can see it sitting on top of the debris.
The hall where we have been turning out the loft.
The unusable dining area.
The TV area where the boys have scatter bombed it with Lego.
The front door (currently jammed shut) with boxes for the dump stacked up in front of the heating system so we can't turn it on!
With the prospect of spending another Christmas here it just can't stay this way, so here's the plan.  I'm taking Friday through to Monday out (apart from some essential meetings) and planning to blitz it.  If the TV hoarders can clean up there act in 4 days then so can I!!!

Wish me luck?  After photos to follow next week.

Post Holiday Blues

I'm back from a family week away with no internet connection.  It's been glorious weather in wonderful company.  Pictures and news to follow, plus I think a few changes are needed.
