I'm in decluttering mode this month. so far I've done the kitchen and put alot of things on one side for the charity shop and then I moved on to the living room and sorted the cupboards out, the shreders has been on overtime with old paper work and now thats has gone in the recycling bin. I get this mood every few months and it always feels good to have a clear out, but there is one room that is piled high and it's been like that for a couple of years now.
It's not a secret, everyone who knows me in life, knows I had a breakdown when I lost my mum, for a while nothing made any sense and I lost all meaning of time. I still have some problems now but compared to then things are alot better, yet there is still this room. The room is only small, it was where me and mum crafted and kept some of the dollshouses. I don't go in it, fact I can hardly get in it as the stuff is piled that high. The stuff is all my mum's things and other things I can't even remember, I went on a bit of a spending spree around that time and everything got shoved in there, along with some unopened mail. I know I need to tackle this room, known it for a year now but still it's there. In my mind I already have plans for it, turn it in to a proper crafting space, spruce it up with some fresh decor but they are all just in my mind.
Today I opened the door and took two bags of stuff out, I've not opened them, they are sat in the hall looking at me, but it is a start isn't it?
