I stopped at midnight and my workroom, bar afew more storage boxes to keep the top shelves tidy, was finished...BUT my landing and part of my bedroom still had the STUFF I had taken out! I just couldn't believe that it had all come out of such a small room - this used to be my Son's bedroom.
Anyway todays plan of action is to tackle the aftermath of yesterday.
Go though the magazines, taking out interesting patterns and articles, and putting in the cuttings folder I have created - DO THIS EVENING WHILST WATCHING TV
Sort through STUFF for things to go to the Jumble Sale - THIS AFTERNOON ready for next Saturday
Sort through STUFF for the Tip - If I smile nicely DH may take it down to tip for me
Sort through STUFF to see if there's anything worth putting back - By this I mean part finished projects, paper/card, threads and beads that have gone astray, because I made a point of only putting back equipment, (includes electrical, sewing paraphernalia, paints/dyes, etc,etc), C & G work and books. I even discarded some books as well!
One thing I MUST point out, because I know I would have thought it if I had seen the BEFORE photographs - THE REST OF MY HOUSE IS TIDY - HONEST!!! I am not a candidate for a visit from "How Clean is your House?" Especially now Aggie has left "Dancing on Ice", she must be eagar to get her teeth into some unfortunate with dust and grime up to their eyeballs. Well that's not me! My room is where I create and unfortunately I tend not to tidy it as I am worried about throwing out something I may need later - I can't be alone on that - Also I tend to start something have another idea and go straight into doing it, so projects keep being left around waiting to be completed.
(By the way, DH was impressed when he came upstairs at 12.15am to find his study looking so tidy!)
The AFTER photos are coming soon
