Whilst I haven't been blogging about the mini-challenges, I have been continuing to do them. Slowly, bit by bit the house is getting tidier and de-cluttered.
Recently we had a gas leak and needed to empty the under stair cupboard. This cupboard had not been fully emptied by the previous owners, or the one before them! They had left 'useful' things like tiles (3 sorts), laminate flooring, cork matting, random bits of wood, and lots of emulsion. We have had a massive clear out from that cupboard, the hall and the front porch. Lots of things have found new homes and some things have gone to be recycled.
After this huge endeavour, it's back to the dining room and bringing that room into good shape.
When I think of house was just before Easter, I am amazed at the changes. It feels so good to have so many good spaces, and that we are able to maintain them to a reasonable standard.
