Something to brighten up these gloomy days

New washing basket.
Ruby and Millie make-up case.

 Apple shaped paper weight with sticky notes.
I love this.
Hope you all have something cheering you up in this cold weather

Shoe Boxes...

Some of you may be aware that I am in the process of decluttering my house and I have a feeling it will forever be a work in progress. I have avoided buying storage boxes just to hide my clutter so I am physically having to take stuff out of the house. Most of the stuff I have given away to charity and some things have made their way to friends houses or been relocated to the shed for the meantime . I have managed to sell a few things on ebay and have advertised bits in my local supermarket and am finding a good home/ place for the things I am keeping.

I do have a small collection of cd's that I am not yet ready to part with as I haven't transferred the music on to my ipod. Sometimes I just like playing them on my radio rather than sticking earphones and listening to my ipod. Master T has also recently been interested in cd's so his collection is also growing. I have never had any proper storage for these cd's, I have always stored them in shoe boxes but looking at a Clarks or Barratts shoe box was really getting on my nerves so I decided to prettify them (if there is such a word).

These are the boxes I selected
One for tapes. I know still a bit old school
and one for cd's

This one is my favourite

but this one is not bad either
Hope you are enjoying whatever you are doing.

Song Of The Week...

Last week it was 1Ds One way or another, the week before it was Taylor Swifts I knew you were trouble, a week before that it was Olly Murs Trouble maker and the week before that it was something else. This weeks song, well since Saturday morning is Do-Re-Mi... from The Sound of Music. Master T is a loud singer, bless him and every morning with no fail he feels the urge to sing in the shower. He doesn't care whether he sings in or out of tune he just goes for it. Ahh to be 10. Where he gets the energy or motivation to sing so early in the morning I do not. I just wish some of it would rub on me.
Some days all the singing gets on my nerves but I just bite my tongue and remember it is not going to last so I might as well make the most of it. 
Hope you have enjoyed your day.

Thank You...

Thank you to everyone who wished me well in my previous post, your kindness is greatly appreciated. It seems I have pleurisy among other things and am taking antibiotics. I have been unwell for a while now but never bothered to go to the doctors. I know I should have taken time off ages ago but there was always something that needed doing from presentations, assignments, competencies to complete so I just pushed myself more and more everyday. I did start feeling a bit better but it was short lived. On Wednesday I had to be sent home cause I looked awful. I am taking next week off so I can recover. It pays to listen to ones body saves 4 weeks of wondering around in pain and feeling half dead.
I spent the whole of yesterday in bed and I suspect more of that will be happening around here.
I haven't managed to do much decluttering around here but I haven't brought anything unnecessary in the house.
I sorted out my keys this afternoon, they looked a mess.
A mess
Better After
What do you think? Do you like it as much as I do?
I bought the CK key fob to make up an order so I could get free delivery.
It only cost me £2.
I don't think I am back to full blogging mode yet and will take a day at a time.
Hope you are all well.

It's me...Wednesday's child. Always full of woe.
Been feeling under the weather for the past few weeks. I am a bit better now but still a bit wobbly. I am trying to get back to my normal routine so will be blogging properly again soon.
Hope you are all well.
