I’ve been reading other people’s blogs for ages, long before I bit the bullet and had a go myself. What held me back was that I felt that my life was too dull, too humdrum. I’m not clever enough to be witty, I’m not inventive enough to live for a week on a £5, I spend 99% of my life alone. The list goes on and on.
But it is the humdrum and the everyday which allows the exciting things to happen. I read a lot of frugality blogs and the most wonderful entries are when the blogger can do something as a result of their frugality over days, month, sometimes years of frugality. Creative blogs sometimes mask the time spent learning a skill to the point of being confident enough to show it off.
And today I have to face something very humdrum. These are two photographs which I have just taken of my sitting room. It doesn’t usually look like this but I am sorting my dining/sewing/spare bed room. Decluttering and sorting must be the dullest job out but until I do this, sewing is going to be hard work, entertaining friends for a meal difficult and I might as well forget the idea of inviting anyone to stay.
So today I must start on this mammoth task.
Because I haven’t told you the real reason for needing to sort it
I can’t find the fabric for Bobo’s trousers!
