Kelly's mission

Yes, it's decluttering the bathroom again. Seems like i've only just done this, and I'm pretty sure I haven't acquired any new clutter, so it means decluttering the spare bedroom for me....eek!

luda - the home blessing is too much for me too, so I split it into 10 mins each day and then it doesnt seem like too much effort.

Trying to sort out bits and pieces today. I'm not so much cleaning as clearing out and tidying. Also trying to sort out ex-tenants electricity bill .

Lots to do and I thought it would be easer withn 2/3 children at school, but I am lacking drive and not really knowing where to start. It really is not possible to dust when there are 75 pots of reindeer food, chocolate bananas and sprinkles and other assorted weird school stuff around!

Someone give me permission to bin some stuff!!!!!!!!!

hey all, still haven't done the mission, grrr at my self, procrastinatin is something I am REALLY good at

tortoise Mon 13-Nov-06 11:20:03

75 pots of reindeer food!
You have my permission to bin anything you want!

Trinityrhino Mon 13-Nov-06 11:22:33

what do reindeers eat??

I would bin alot of it and ust keep alittle bit so the kids don't think you don't appreciate what they make lol

RubyRioja Mon 13-Nov-06 11:29:41

Reindeer food is for school fete (I'm not weird really ), but I am struggling after the first wave of decluttering to get rid of stuff. Some is sentimental (ie Mum and Dad's), some is useful, but duplicates and some I am not sure if we need it or not (eg clothes for DDs).

BUT I absoltuely recognise, that if there is no room in cupboards, stuff does not get put away.

RubyRioja Mon 13-Nov-06 11:30:28

And choc bananas for toddler group tomorrow! See I really am not strange!

Morning all. Feeling very bunged up today. I got up this am and got the DSs ready for school. HNtree stopped in bed. It does feel great to be getting back to doing things again.

The bathroom is doing ok, so not much FLYing needs to be done in there. I need to buy bathroom bits though. Running low on everything

Things that I want to do today.
Normal FLYing (every day things)
and I want to clean off the shelfs in the lounge. I have too much on them and I never dust them as it takes so long I`m going to put some bits away so there is not so much on them.
Going to make a lamb hot pot for tea tonight.

Just one other thing to say..............

and thats.......

Tortoise. The xmas lights look fab!!

Morning everyone, after what seems like an age, i'm back.

House is looking good following a week of mentally trying to get it ready to go on the market - but now its allabout maintenance. Its been nearly a week, so I feel out of the loop - hope people are feeling better than they did last week when there was a lot of fluey stuff about. Early am for me, about to wakr the children for school will read back through to catch up later if i get the chance.

Its nice to be back

ludaloo Mon 13-Nov-06 11:55:53

hello mama!

tortoise Mon 13-Nov-06 11:59:11

Hi mama!
I have just changed DD1's sheets and wiped DD2's cot mattress and cover.It went right through the waterproof sheet which has now got tiny cracks in it!

tortoise Mon 13-Nov-06 12:01:36

Now i'm sneezing and nose running again! Grrr.Fed up with it.

RubyRioja Mon 13-Nov-06 12:10:36

Have had clear out in dd1's bedroom - a bit of genuine rubbish, but also two sacks of cuddlytoys in extremely good condition, many still with labels. Fimbles, Cat in teh hat, Nemo etc.

Any ideas what to do with them? Do charity shops actually use them?

tortoise Mon 13-Nov-06 12:16:07

Id put them on Ebay! 10p listing day today.
Charity shops would sell them.

RubyRioja Mon 13-Nov-06 12:18:55

Charity shop then! I suspect half the world curses huge numbers of soft toys!

I can't take them to school fair as dd's will recognise some!

ludaloo Mon 13-Nov-06 12:25:58

I would charity shop them ruby....I'm sure they would be glad of them really,

I just can't get going today!! Attempted dd1 room but ended up playing with the hamster!

Must must must do something!!!!!!!!!

tortoise Mon 13-Nov-06 12:26:51

ludaloo I can't get motivated either.I do keep getting up and doing little bits.
Maybe i should do some damp dusting.

ludaloo Mon 13-Nov-06 12:27:39

ooh whats damp dusting???

I'll do it if you do!

tortoise Mon 13-Nov-06 12:35:17

Um dusting with a damp cloth!
I normally use polish but i think with my nose today maybe a damp cloth will hold the dust better.
I almost never do dusting!!

ludaloo Mon 13-Nov-06 12:37:19


i don't think I've done that before!!!

Actually I have been known to use a baby wipe

Anyway...Yes to damp dust!!!!!!!!
