Adulting: KonMari and Kitchens

Anyone who knows me, or follows me on social media, or reads this blog, will probably know that I am not the most tidy of people. I have tried to employ different methods over the years, but nothing sticks and nothing actually helps me get past the surface mess and actually make enough storage space and room for the things that I actually want to keep, store, show off. My room and the space I live in has slowly been irritating me, which coincided with discovering the Netflix show ‘Tidying Up with Marie Kondo’ and my outlook on it all has changed.

I’ve reached that stage in my adult life where my relationship with the space I live in is changing. When I first moved into the house I live in now, I was so excited to move in to a painted, carpeted, fully fledged house of my own that I didn’t mind taking in all the old furniture family and friends had to spare. 3 years on and I am starting to notice things I would like to do and change to the house, things I need to sort and to decorate, and updates I would like to make.

Adulting: Spring Clean Update

A few weeks ago, in fact, almost a month to the day, I posted about my desire to have a spring clean in my bedroom, in the house, and in my car. Well, Spring is now officially upon us and I’ve had a week off work, so I’ve tried to sort some things out in the house (with some help along the way!) Nothing is perfect yet, we’re definitely still a way off yet, but it’s generally looking a lot better so I wanted to fill you in on a few of the things I’ve been doing.

Adulting: Spring Clean

Yesterday, I posted all about my blog. I posted about the changes I wanted to make, and I posted about the big decisions I have ahead for how I want my blog to be. It made me think about my life as a whole. Now, stay with me here, it’s not going to be quite as deep as I made it sound there, but, why stop at an e-spring clean? My bedroom looks like a nuclear bomb detonated a series of hand grenades in every drawer and wardrobe and then a group of monkeys were released to reek havoc with any available piece of clothing. I know you’re probably thinking that’s an exaggeration, but the photos later will show you that I’m not joking.

My car is also creeping along the untidy scale at an alarming rate. I’ve had Pedro for about 6 months now, and I vowed to keep him clean and tidy. I was doing relatively well, he was quite tidy and pretty clean (at least on the inside) for quite a long time, but over the last couple of weeks, he has just suddenly began breeding rubbish. I know my car needs cleaning on the outside because I drive far each day between fields, and it is pretty dusty, but inside was always nice and neat. Now as that’s changing, it’s starting to stress me out a little, which in turn has stressed me out about my room.
