All Dressed Up & Nowhere To Go ....

Oh dear, all kitted out with her new stuff, and ready for her first sailing lesson with dad.


We got up to snow! One day we're sitting on the deck in the sun and then the next it snows. It was pretty steady all morning, so that put an end to the sailing. Unfortunately because it's tidal they won't be able to go next weekend either. Mind you, I don't think Hettie fancied going out in the cold anyway, so she didn't put up much resistance to the change of plans.

So dh and I decided as we had a day free (at last) we would have a good reorganise of clutter and cupboards. My in-laws had a sideboard going free, so we wrestled that into the 'school' room and I sorted it all out, actually it wasn't too untidy so it didn't take long. We then decided our bedroom was desperately in need of help, it was becoming a storeroom. I haven't got any pics but boy is it tidy now!! Much easier with two on the job. Dh took all the old stuff for recycling at the tip, several bin bags full. In the middle of the mess my niece came with her boyfriend and took the girls to the cinema.



One built in cupboard was so full of old sheets, duvet covers etc we couldn't actually get in what we use. The downstairs loo has been turned back into a cupboard for the time being - us girls don't use it anyway - and so the ironing board etc has now gone from my room, at last. The hoover has a home!

And I have two nice empty shelves to put on all the curriculum stuff I'm planning, most of which is in a heap in the front lounge -

I'll take another pic when it's all organised & labelled.

So I'm hoping to keep going now. The kitchen cupboards are pretty much organised but need a clean out & tidy, and I've got the bathroom to clean, and of course that never ending washing and ironing pile.........

Oh, I just love organizing! lol.

Looks like you will have fun with all of this fun school stuff.

By the way, I think your school plans are great. You've put a lot of thought and work in them.
