I was going to post photos today of our Christmas celebrations but they will have to wait for another day!!
I tend to find this week between Christmas and New Year (when our office is closed so I am on holidays) one filled with the 2 extremes. I spend a lot of it being very lazy, napping, reading and wasting a lot of time on the computer or catching up with dvds. On the other hand I get all inspired for the new year , making lists and plans of how I will have a clean,tidy house at all times, get healthy and thin, eat better and cook more and of course take time to smell the roses and craft more!!! While I am in this planning mode I tend to get stuck into some tidying, cleaning and sorting at home. We cleaned the fridge out this morning, I know it isn't something I should be so excited about but I am!!! Not just a wipe out or a quick glance at what was past it's best but a take everything out and scrub kind of clean!!! I can't stop looking at it now..... Sad I know!
The other thing we achieved today is something that has been on the list for a while. I have been looking out for a bookcase to fit this little wall near the kitchen. It is quite a narrow space. Today I decided I couldn't wait any longer for the perfect bookcase so I bought a 'cheap' (some assembly required) bookcase. Darling SH put it together for me not without a few problems caused by the assistant and yes that may of been me!!! I have now put all my cookbooks into it. They were on the main bookcase, hard to get to and taking up so much space. Here they are handy and close to the kitchen and all together, no longer will I have to spend a lot of time searching!!! I am really happy with the result. Now to attack the pantry tomorrow!!!
(the mess you can see either side is other sorting and Christmas goodies still to put away! oops!)
