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.

Daily Writing Journal: Mo Money Challenge - week 8 which means £8 in the tin!

£8 in coins So I'm on my second week on saving and still not sure. I'm not feeling the pinch per se, but it's hard thinking how am I going to maintain this. So I managed to get a few coins out and gather some change, but at some point I'll really need to organise this. I've put in four fifty pence pieces with come up to two pounds sterling and the rest in pound coins.  Remember the money tin from last week. Well it all went inside that.... How am I feeling? Slightly bored but I still have a long way to go..... Saving money is boring, spending is more interesting.

Searching for office christmas party venue, celebrating Momma AG birthday.

Rang to sing Momma A G happy birthday! Got to work early and did some of my goal work. Also Accounting Guru Boss showed me an easy way of planning. She is a genius. It's that simple so I'm going to practice her method of planning.  I must say I've learn plenty. Working with her is like one long professional master class with private tuition.  Glamorous colleague also gave me tips on completing a goal related task. All tasks are like elephants tackle the largest on in the morning. Red Jumper colleague took the day off for Black Friday. Apparently he's waking up at early to go on the internet looking for deals after which he'll go to the shopping centre. Told him I was going to wait until boxing day to get a new purse. Then after all the excitement he was like 'What am I going to do on Cyber Monday." Glamorous and I went looking for some where for our team christmas lunch. She wasn't having us eat in a pub. She has high standards. She was okay abo

Daily Writing Journal - #6 my urban lit African American romance. Went Christmas Shopping in House of Fraser and John Lewis.

Not much going. Well, it's Christmas! I went shopping yesterday after work to get some presents. I still have plenty more. House of Fraser is a good place to go. I feel it misses a lot of traffic because it's in between John Lewis and Debenhams.  I'm talking about departmental stores on Oxford Street, London. Okay let's talk about writing. Or maybe not. It's the festive season. In John Lewis , they also had the Elton John Experience. That was nice. I feel compelled to show some pictures but that means downloading all the pictures in my phone. I'll get more organised about this as I go along. Then again this is just a journal of my writing. So writing, well I said I'd skip that but I did manage to write another synopsis. What do you think? Synopsis Angelica Washington is a strong woman takes family responsibility seriously, but things aren't always as perfect as they seem .  A bad family ordeal and an impulsive urge leads her to the arms of a h
