One of my goals this year is to dramatically cut the amount of things I buy. I find decluttering helps me to cut spending – it’s a reminder of how much I already have. So I’m going to do a ‘Get Rid of 500 things’ challenge again. I did this in 2015 and you can… Read More Decluttering
So it’s day 51 of The 100 Day Project. I’ve been through the “I love this and never want to stop” phase, the “why on earth did I sign up for this, I hate it” phase, and am currently in “sometimes this is a pain but I am enjoying it”! My project this year is… Read More The 100 day project – halfway there!
Today is day 100 of The 100 Day Project – I did it! I challenged myself to cook a new (to me) recipe every day for 100 days.

Thank you for all your comments about my decluttering challenge – it’s nice to know I’m not alone ! I found decluttering fun at first, but it got harder, and something that helped me keep going was having a goal which would make a difference to my everyday life. I’ve recently started making fabric covered mirrors… Read More Decluttering tip – have a short term goal
One of my goals for this year was to wave goodbye to 500 things by the end of May. And I’m halfway there! We moved to this house 7 years ago, and I found that a helpful cut off point. If we hadn’t used something since we moved, we probably won’t use it again. However,… Read More Goal # 4 – Get rid of 500 things
I’ve had some vintage pale blue brushed cotton in my stash for a while. I had pyjamas in mind, but couldn’t decide on the top. The colour could be a bit hospital scrubs-y in a t-shirt.
