My house is a state! I am absolutely determined to declutter in time for Xmas this year. I have never managed it before blush

My main wants are:

- to clear out our tiny kitchen (it's a galley style, so small you can barely swing an atom let alone a cat!) so that cooking is less stressful and we will be more likely to do festive baking etc - another thing I've never managed to do...

- to do a massive sweep of all DCs toys, books and clothes. They have WAY too many, and especially with toys it means that new things don't really get appreciated because they get lost among everything else.

- to completely sort out our living room so it actually looks nice when decorated and there is room to play.

I am unable to do much ATM because I'm not very well, but this could be a long term thing so I don't want to just leave it - I want to do a tiny bit every day. Yesterday I collected a laundry bin full of recycling stuff - mostly pieces from some orchard toys games - some of which due to clutter have never really even been played with properly blush

I can't be the only one who needs to declutter for Xmas - who's with me?

Bugger missed the 2pm link up angry

On the other hand, I have a reasonably tidy house, most of the prep done for tomorrow and am just about to sit down with the Baileys while I wrap the pressies.

Merry Christmas everyone grin

<<marks place for next year as well>>
