Throw out time!

Well its raining and everywhere I look there is mess, mess and more mess!  So in an effort to get my house under control I have decided to spend my birthday month creating the environment I would love to come home to everyday.  Now, I'm not saying I will actually achieve it but it has to be better than living in a mess I despise and blaming everyone else but me for it lol.  I mean seriously I have 11 wine glasses.  The hilarious thing is that I hate the taste of wine, I just wanted nice glasses to drink my OJ out of at the christmas dinner, so Briscoes had a sale and I bought a set of 6.  Then i went to a friends house for dinner and she had a set of glasses that were just lovely to drink out of and I HAD to have some.  So off to Mitre 10 I went and bought a set of six.  How sad is that!  Add to that an uneven set of pasta plates (5) which don't match my white dinner set, throw in two brown cereal bowls because you know, the cereal doesn't taste as nice out of square ones *rolls eyes*.  Then add about 10 different plastic bowl thingees for the kidlets to take playlunch in, never mind the fact that they both have a sandwich keeper plus each and a sandwich holder and I guess you can understand my dilema.  A hoarder?????? Mmm one must consider the obvious, I obviously have too good a taste for my kitchen cuboards to handle LOL. 

And so I venture into my closet where my nice shoes are.  Yes my vice - shoes and handbags!  I can actually blame this obsession on my mother as she has the most fabulous collection of shoes EVER!  It is indeed in my genes - according to my father.  My dearest husband of course simply cannot understand a womans need for matching shoes and handbags.  One day my dear I shall have you graduating with a masters in the perfect pair of shoes to complete a look.  And so I have vowed to list at least 10 items for the month of May that I successfully get rid of.  Wish me luck!

Wowsers she's been muggy!

Well along with a new year has come the wonderful discovery of prepaid broadband and an ipad.  Living out in the whops does have its disadvantages with no broadband at all available apart from the good old t stick and telecom.  So I am back in the world of blogging until all my mbs are eaten up.  I have soldiered on with the deluttering and my promise to throw out for every item I bring in soooo

1 pair of op shop sandals $3 (I so love these!)
1 jacket from the op shop
1 ipad - courtesy of hubby claus :)

2 pairs of sandals
1 jacket
3 handbags
1 highchair thingee
1 pair of scissors (desperate I know)lol
1 old laptop
1 PC donated to my older brother whilst DS learns that Mama has the final say on when he can and can't use the computer.
2 pairs of the boys pants
2 boys jerseys
1 pair of hardly worn shoes
1 secondhand pushbike.

And although I was sorely tempted after the constant bickering this morning, these were not in the out pile....yet......

A wee reflection and a bright year ahead

Hey y'all!
Well yes I have been  rather slack on the blog at the moment.  I have been extremely busy of late and made a few life changing decisions for me and mine.  First up - I chose to resign from my position as Principal of a School.  Although a scary decision it was one made by choice.  No 2 I turned down the opportunity of another teaching position which would mean we would have to move.  No 3 - I decided along with my significant other that I did not want to leave grandma so we are staying put for another year.  We had planned to pick up and move to where Dh is from but after g'ma had a wee fall I decided to stay as she is getting on in her years and we are really close to her.  So I am at this point in time a  SAHM.  It is so interesting to see just how much the dynamics of our household have changed and how much happier we all are!

  A few reflective piccies for 2010

Will have to work on adding more photos as I haven't managed to sync the iPad yet lol
