Getting Organised

One of the best things about being on holiday is having time to
Something I really enjoy!
Today it was the turn of my wardrobe.
Firstly I hoiked  the contents of said wardrobe onto the bed.
I was rather hoping Howard would get the hint,

Nah, he has his stubborn face on.
Anyway seems I have alot of clothes.
Right lets get started.
(Oh in case you're wondering the feathery thing above the mirror was made for me by lovely Jacob, on the wood it says 'best mum', I know ahhhhh. He was about 6 when he made this.)
Where were we?

Lets look inside the empty cupboard, great vintage vibe going on here, don't you think?
Can't bring myself to decorate inside this cupboard, this wallpaper is proper vintage!
Pretty isn't it.

Well I've sorted the long sleeves from the short.

Yeah kicked Howard off, the bed's not big enough for the both of us!
Hmmm some kind of order, I think?????

OMG a very ancient CandA top buried at the bottom.
I love this top!

To iron or not to iron. Not to iron I think, I'll never get finished, just fold then.

Lovely neat piles of pretty clothes.

I've found tops that I haven't worn for ages, it's like going shopping without the pain!
I've finally parted company with my most favourite pair of trousers EVER!
I mean look at them........ really would I wear these with my bottom hanging out,
no sireee!
They've found their way into my fabric stash.
Hmmm that's not clearing them out I hear you say.
One step at a time ladies!

So into the wardrobe go my piles of beautifully folded clothes.

Looks lovely doesn't it, I can see at a glance what I've got.

A bit of a shuffle around and everything fits in perfectly.

I've managed to throw out quite alot of stuff!
All bagged up for the clothes bank now.

Well done me I'm very pleased with my mornings work.
And I discovered some interesting facts.
1. My wardrobe is quite coordinated, lots of purples pinks and greens.
2. Some of my most favourite clothes are from Charity shops.
3. I am mainly size 8/10 and have been for years cos some of my clothes are ancient!
4. I don't need to buy anything for ages cos I can put together some new looks with stuff I haven't worn for yonks.
 5. I find it difficult to get rid of things, my clothes have sentimental value to them and anyway. What goes around comes around doesn't it!
Right what's next on my Get Organised list, ah yes packing.
holiday's coming! That's going to be blissful now I can see what I've got.
Gold medal to me for a good mornings work!
Are you good at sorting or is it just a bore?
See ya


  1. Great job, but not me at all, I literally felt my anxiety levels rising at all that tidiness and organisation! I had a chuckle at Howard! How hilarious is he? He was certainly staying put, in the thick of things wasn't he? My dog likes to get in the way of crafts and walk through the middle of boardgames.

Things are looking up!

Well hello! I'm a little bit back and it feels good! So what have I been doing? Weeeeeeel alot of things have happened since we last spoke. Let's have a round up. I spent quite a few months coping with fatigue and depression which meant a bit of a standstill with  pretty much everything. Glum times. Life was quiet, slow, gentle. I had to be careful and kind to myself but gradually I felt better found my energy and got back to normal ish. I found gardening and crochet two of the most therapeutic things to do. But the most restorative activity I've been enjoying is, well take a little look.

 The Right Honourable Hector Albert Schnauzer

Possibly the happiest dog in the world.

He certainly make me happy, Who knew I'm a dog person! If you want to reduce your stress levels get a Hector! I thought long and hard before getting him, found a kennel club breeder and have spent a long time socializing and training him, he's been a complete joy so responsive and eager to learn. Just the …

Five Photo Friday

Last weekend saw another trip to the woods,  more beautiful bluebells and wild flowers.  It's so wonderful spending time outside in Nature.

I've also been spinning some gorgeous merino. Nice and thin!

Topped off with a little crochet play in the sunshine. Whilst I recover from my day out in the woods!  Yeah a whole week to get over one trip, Chronic Fatigue is RUBBISH!

Still least I can sit in my beautiful garden. How's your week been, what have you all been making, doing, enjoying? Do tell! Love ♥Sue♥

Half term, it's been too short. It's been all about these gorgeous boys. Beautiful Brodie, two weeks today.

And Finlay the most fantastic two year old EVER! That's true, cos I'm his Nana. ♥
Finlay's birthday cake. Just so you all know, I'm never making a Thomas cake again, fiendishly tricky!

 We also spent some time checking out Storm Brian. Very stunning he was too.

That's it, end of another holiday. Roll on Christmas then!!!!! Love ♥Sue♥
