Plans.

On the back of yesterday I have been making plans for my Spring Cleaning!  DH helps out, especially with the moving of the furniture and it does go quicker with the two of us and I have lost a weekend.  So the plans are getting up early this weekend and next to get all the jobs done! 

I will be getting all the extra washing sorted out too, cushion covers, curtains, throws, bed protectors etc washed and out of the line.  We are due to have a warm and sunny weekend. 

I also use it as an opportunity to declutter things.  If I haven’t used it in the past year I recycle it to our local charity shop.  When my Mom passed I was still living at home and I had to find certain legal papers and it was an absolut nightmare.  My Parents had lived in our home for twenty five years and I don’t think my Mom had ever thrown anything away.  Then when my Grandmother passed DH and I had to clear her home out and she had lived there with my Grandfather and her mother, so there were in effect two homes.  It took us weeks and weeks to get it done so I am determined that I will not have that happen in our home. My good friend Susan has had to go through the same thing and has also vowed to declutter her things too!  Perhaps we should set up a Blog Hop of decluttering!!!

Of course we have lots of boxes in the attic stored with the Boys baby things and toys which eventually will go to their homes when they have them!!!!!

For me the Spring Cleaning is one of those jobs I hate to start and really get cross doing it, but absolutely love it and how our home looks once it is done!  But isn’t it the case with any big job?

I have resorted to my list making, so I don’t forget anything and of course using my Spring Cleaning lists which you can find on my side bar.  It really does help to have it all written down and tick it off once you have completed a task, I love ticking things off!!  You can’t guess that as a little girl I loved stationery, notebooks and lists!!!  It really helped when I was studying for my exams, I had notes and lists pinned up all over the place. 

How is your Wednesday going?  Thursday tomorrow with home jobs and Friday I am getting a start on things and grocery shopping of course. 

Hugs & Love, Susie xx

My reward when all the Spring Cleaning is done; a cup of tea and an hour to read!!!

    Lazy Wednesday here, waiting for my lawn mower to be repaired. Of course, you never know it’s broken until you go to use it, so my lawn has needed mowing for over 2 weeks now!! Hope the carburetor repair is fast as I’m having surgery on my right hand on Friday and will not be able to mow for at least a week after that! Poor Tara is navigating through dandelions taller than she is!!

    Decluttering is such a tough job not wanting to get rid of something that you’ll regret. Good luck on the spring cleaning! Our heat got turned off yesterday. Finally, some warmer days!

    Decluttering is hard – not knowing what to keep and what to let go. Good luck with your spring cleaning! We finally turned our furnace off yesterday. Warmer weather is here!
