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.

Weekly update. Verdict on Check It movie, lack of black male role models and normal boring stuff. Oh and I'm still fat.

Hello everyone! So new focus. Yes, I never know what to write about. Never know what’s interesting so I’m just going to write for myself…if that makes sense. There are slew of blogs trying to change the world, radicalise the world, and revolutionise the world so I’m not doing that here. Not am I going to think - oh will people find this interesting or boring. To be frank, I’m a pretty boring person but hey ho let me write.  I’m thinking of changing my gym. Well right now I’m a member of Virgin Active Health Club which styles itself as a life style gym, and to be honest the only thing I use is the hot tub, sauna and steam room. In the three years I’ve been a member, I’ve only been in the gym about ten times, gone for two classes - they are always fully book so I only really just use the hydro-pool/spa, and steam room. I’m a member of the Islington Angel branch which is were all the posh liberals are.  This is a picture of the spa, and pool. The pool can be a bit chill at times.
