Mantelpiece!

Like many folks this time of year, my sap rises and I get the urge to declutter. Our mantelpiece was a nightmare and because it was so cluttered, it wasn't getting dusted. Since having Ruby, our dust levels have increased and I am getting more lazy as I age!

DB commented on how much better it looked and how we could put on a nice picture of DS and DDiL. I said no. Our walls are covered in pictures, including their wedding and our wedding pictures. We don't need anymore on here. Sorry DS and DDiL.

We move our chairs and tables around in the lounge once a month. It not only distributes wear and tear on them but also gives us a good opportunity for a thorough clean and getting rid of items. The next thing to tackle is our huge 'cubed' corner unit, which is also stuffed.

We want to decorate and change the carpet so now is a good time to do it.

  1. I wouldn't know where to start to declutter I'm afraid! And as for David's (multiple) sheds !!! Typical smallholders, everything might come in useful someday. x

  2. It looks nice and you're right to do it as dust build up contributes to upper respiratory problems.
