Getting my life and house in order for Christmas
This weekend I was busy, I began to de-clutter and clean…
The past 2 or so years my home had come to reflect my mind… MESSY: a jumble of emotions, thoughts, uncertainty, procrastination and no commitment to anything. When your house comes to reflect your mind (in a bad way) it isn’t good for the psyche, you are always surrounded by those feelings that you want to leave behind.
Luckily I have work to escape to, somewhere I can focus my mind and complete things…….
My life has become steadily happier this past year. Beyond the normal stresses of everyday life and family issues there have been moments of pure happiness that have helped enormously.
Committing to losing weight has been a huge step in the right direction for me…. it’s like a huge mental block has lifted and it feels time to catch up on all those things I have left uncompleted.
So this weekend I rolled up my sleeves and began to tackle the issues…. and I started to clean and de-clutter a very messy kitchen and make use of the space I had under the dumping ground somewhere! So I cleared off a moveable kitchen unit, pushed it against the wall and transformed it into a functional breakfast bar area where the kids can no go and help themselves to breakfast and sit and eat it too…
Then I dug out a folding buffet table to use as a central food preparation area in my kitchen. It’s over 7ft long BUT will be ideal for Christmas where there is so much cooking that needs to be done. Although my kitchen is small there is still room to walk around the folding table and sit at it too! It’s also easy to fold up and remove and with a Christmas tablecloth over the top will be a very useful area for a Christmas buffet over the holiday season.
I also moved the computer table and relocated the router (yes we have such a multi-functional kitchen) and now I think it looks much better.
Tonight I work more on the kitchen…. I want to get that finished as I have BIG PLANS for food and some Christmas crafts!
