Looking down the back paddock was Milo the pony. She was in the chook yard. Very naughty. She had broken the fence overnight and had snuck in. I think the photo is blurry because it was still dark when I took it.
I had my first breakfast for the day and gave myself time to wake up.
7am I called my Health Coach. As part of my course we have to have phone or Skype sessions with a Health Coach who is assigned to us by IIN. My Health Coach is in the USA and she is lovely. We chatted for 1 hour which is the requirement. During this chat I talked to Deirdre about some new goals I want to focus on......... the main one being to declutter our home. We have lived in this home for eight years now and the clutter is beginning to accumulate. It is beginning to cause stress for me. So the only thing a wise woman can do is to get stuck into it and get stuck into it I have. I have begun in the book/study area, well that is what it is becoming anyway. We did have a bookcase against the wall and surrounding the bookcase was clutter. Clutter that I had collected from other areas in our home, other areas that I had decluttered. Now however, it's time to get serious. I have moved the bookcase to the side of the area. I am going through everything that was in the area and REMOVING things from our home. Before the day is over I am going to get the things that need to go and I'm putting them in the car. Then when I have finished they will be taken elsewhere. Then the room is going to be cleaned and then painted. I am thinking at the moment about how I want the area to look and what I want in it.
So, I had better get back to it. I AM going to finish going through the books today and then what we don't need are going to be taken to the town library tomorrow morning. That way I can't change my mind. I have taken some before photos and will take some after photos when I'm done. I can't put the before photos on my blog until I'm finished, it is too depressing. I'll do a before and after post when I'm done. Please send some great decluttering vibes my way, I need all the help I can get.
Hope you are having a lovely Friday.
Thanks for reading.
