Decluttering Me! Discovering the Marie Kondo way to declutter PART 2

Hello everyone,

how are you? So I'm still on the Marie Kondo decluttering mission and decided to do everything. Well I still have a trunk to empty. It's been an emotional journey in terms of who I was, who I was planning to be and where I turned up.

I've only put up images of my tidy because I thought someone may like to see evidence, instead of a nice looking Instagram or stock picture. Something to show I'm a real person. By the way, this is a set of drawers from John Lewis. I've forgotten the set's name. Anyway way, moving on.

This was the original state of my drawers, some of the clothes have been donated so it's a different set.

Sorting my clothes is telling a narrative of my life. It's quite grey at the moment. But some things were easy to get rid. Nice clothes - even with tags one -  but I never felt them. I have a lovely beaded skirt which I'll offer to my sister (provided she wears it). I bought it because nothing in my closet fitted me and I needed to go somewhere. Its a nice cut both from Costa.. Size 14 so US 12. Just not me.

There is also the narrative of my weight gain. This can be seen in matching set colourful lingerie to the totalitarian blacks and greys I wear today. The lingerie I bought while in relationships and the ones when I was single.

I'm 'breaking' the rules in that I'm keeping something. But there is the a question of whom I've become rather than who I wanted to be. Also what is my vision now? What am I thinking?

I've listened to the audio book and that was cool.  I've done it in away that was convenient to me, so I can see I've gone wrong. Though I started in categories, I also started in places not good. The reason is now I'm finding places to put all my clothes together where as if I'd done it in gone go, then I'd probably have sorted it out.

I've donated (well put in the charity clothing bin) about two bags of clothes

My current category

  • tops- teeshirt
  • blouses - work
  • knitwear
  • skirts
  • trousers/pants
  • dresses
  • nightwear
  • gym wear
  • swimming gear
  • lingerie
  • coats
  • suits

Right now I'm focusing on decluttering. I have a ton of stuff of to do. So I might update you soon!

Have a great weekend.

My African American & Black Love Romance Adventure Nearly Ready After Four Years.

Thanks for dropping by and taking the time to read this. This post is going to be about my upcoming black love and African American contemporary romance release, which I think tentatively will be late this year or early 2024. It will be a six-part serialised novel, and I'll reveal the date nearer the time. It has been five years since my last black love romance novel. I have two novellas published on Amazon, and I'm  pleased to finally say, I'm about to publish again. It's been a long time.  I planned to release this book in February 2019, but after a long writer's block and other things, it had taken me this long to complete it.  If you follow this blog on and off, I've spoken about it a lot over the years. I'm thinking maybe I should relabel those blog posts as a series of how it developed.  The Story Description The names have changed well from Angelica to Pippa but it's fine.  Everyone wants someone special but PIPPA MILLER thinks not her. She

Finally I'm getting close to a release date for my urban Black Love African America Romance now Pippa & Leyton

I'm working on a pre-release campaign and it isn't going how I'd like it. However if you have being reading me on and off, you'll know I've been writing some novels-in-progress for the longest times!  I stopped writing about it because it just got EMBARRASSING especially when I planned to release this book in 2019. Yes, five years ago! But it's nearly there.  Leyton & Pippa The heroine started off being called Angelica but I kept on misspelling it so I changed it to Pippa. If you look under the label Angelica & Leyton a lot will come up.  Anyway I'm exciting to say, I'm getting reading for publication soon.  Its going to be a six-part serialised instalment, and I'll have details nearer the time.  Maybe A Six Months Countdown I'm planning between three to six months, however when the details are clear, I'll write a post. I'm also doing an extended blog posts on another blog but I'll keep it short and simple here. 

On holiday And Vacation in Alcudia,Mallorca

I'm on a holiday break in Mallorca, Spain. So this means a I won't be writing the prompt. On holiday, I normally have a break from  the internet though it's difficult nowadays with free WiFi. The hotel is okay. A four star on the lower end of the scale - this means no kettle and renting the safe.   The higher end have more add ons. The room are tiny but functional and nice however in fairness it is a beach holiday destination so I doubt there is much lounging around. Food is okay. Superb beach. Everyone seems laid back and relaxed.
