Ok so technically as I blog it's Monday as its 1:30. BUT I haven't been to sleep yet so in my mind it's still Sunday, and I'm going to cheat and move this post back to Sunday.
I can't sleep, if you can't guess. Annoying as about 9pm I could barely keep my eyes open but as soon as my head hit the pillow that was it, wide awake! Rather than lying there and willing myself to sleep I gave up, came back downstairs and managed to catch up on some TV and empty the ironing basket. So the time wasn't wasted anyway :)
Today has just raced by, which might be why my brain is having trouble winding down thinking about it, but anyway; Caitlin was off out early this morning as she was off swimming with her friend, Cameron was happily watching TV and I looked around and realised what a MESS my house was.
Don't get me wrong, its not 'Hoarders' level by a long shot but with a small house it just feels like theres so much stuff in it and it can feel a little overwhelming at times. I do declutter on a regular basis but somehow it seems to breed.
So that was it, I started my spring cleaning. 3 bin bags full in the bin, 2 boxes of bits to car boot put into the garage and 2 more bin bags full of clothes and toys for the charity shop I felt much better :)
Like most crafters however my stash is, well a lot. Not by a lot of peoples standards but to me it is and it makes me reluctant to start anything as I just pull more and more out, create a mess and then don't know where to go from there.
As a result my desk is currently covered in little boxes full of die cuts, bows and pin wheels. Caitlin wasted no time when she got back from swimming and picked out these bits to make a birthday card for her friend.
The party was at a roller disco which before now I didn't know exsisted. Caitlin had a great time though so sure we will be going back.
Funnily enough for a girl who took to ice skating like a fish to water she struggled with the roller skates. Bless her though she kept trying, I was close behind catching her as she fell, it was like teaching her to walk again lol.
Luckily she caught on quick enough and it wasn't long before I was shooed away to sit with the other parents.
The kids all loved it, the parents all felt like we'd been through emotional torture. Fun Sunday night. lol.
