The great big 5 (catch up)

Hi everyone 

Yesterday I was so busy. I did do some decluttering but didn't find time to write a blog post, so it's catch up now and I will hopefully post again later with what I've been up to today.

Sunday morning was all about laundry. I am so happy to be hanging out my washing! I got all caught up and tackled a mountain of ironing. Meanwhile my lovely OH took Daisy out on her new super trike. 

We had a lovely Sunday roast. Beef is a rare treat for us. Then it was outside in the garden to play. Daisy just loves the freedom of being able to run around safely. 

Then her auntie and uncle came to visit (as they do every weekend) and we all sat out in the garden until it got chilly. 

Tea, bath and bed for Daisy and I watched the last episode of Call the Midwife. I will miss it :(

Right...decluttering news...
While doing the laundry, I found clothes that Daisy had grown out of last week. They have been washed and ironed ready to sell at our first Carboot.

There is quite a lot here, stacked up, mainly vests.

31 - 40). All vests that Daisy has grown out of. Carboot pile.

41). Baby knickers - as above.

42 - 44). Leggings - as above.

45). Baby shorts - as above.

46). Pink top - as above.

47). Old socks (mine) off to the bin.

So hopefully I will hit the half way mark later today. The airing cupboard is next, but it will be a case of recycling there as I reuse towels in other ways around the house.

See you later,

  1. You are doing so well, I am too lazy to count stuff. There are no car boots close to me at the moment so I am taking a leaf out of your book and storing anything good enough to sell. Funnily enough I am filling lidded plastic boxes that I have emptied while sewing through my stash of fabric.

    1. Thanks Pam!
      What have you been making with your fabric stash?

  2. Just catching up with you again, Mandy as life has been a bit hectic here.
    Well done with your decluttering, doesn't it make you feel good?
    I did some & we had a garage sale a couple of weeks ago, all good!
    At the moment my disabled dh has just had a cataract op & on Friday I have treatment for a skin cancer on my face. Life's a merry go round.
    However I am glad things are looking a bit better for you.
