I cracked on with the Xbox room today which means every cupboard and shelf downstairs has now been cleaned and cleared. The carpet arrives tomorrow and the furniture on Wednesday, so it's perfect timing.
I seem to be collecting bags and boxes for the tip but we may as well wait until the furniture has been unpacked and do one trip rather than going with one bag at a time.
Upstairs was next, so feeling inspired I went and did my wardrobe and drawers. This is what I've removed. For charity/car boot, 1 clutch bag, 1 shoulder bag, 1 scarf, 1 teddy bear, 8 books. The carrier bag is crammed full of rubbish; scraps of material and wool, paperwork, magazines, etc, that over the Christmas weeks just got dumped in there.
The birds are enjoying the nuts I've put out for them, it's quite busy in the garden with them flying in and out. And an added bonus is the robin has returned and brought a friend with him, so we have two of them to watch now. I've also identified another jigsaw bird. It's the one next to the robin with a black head and red/orange body and it's a bulfinch.
And that's about it for today. It's been very uneventful but also very satisfying. There's even been time for a crossword, some jigsaw and TV. I even managed to squeeze in a chapter of my book and a piece of turkish delight that Mum bought me as part of my Christmas present.
Not a bad start to the week I'd say.
