Well the decorations have come down and our lounge is back to being a clean, tidy, "adult" space. Our mantelpiece and bookshelves had become a real hot-spot for clutter (paperwork, remote controls, headphones, mobiles, keys etc - stuff that doesn't have a home straight away). I'm so pleased that these areas are clear, they look lovely - I have posted the photos to remind myself & get out of the habit of dumping stuff there!!!

As per FlyLady's zone cleaning for this week I spent yesterday morning cleaning the dining room. I took out all the crystal glasses, washed them and put them back into the nicely polished shelves in the cabinet. The glass doors were cleaned too and it all looks very sparkly and shiny now, as you can see from the photo.

Unfortunately the same can't be said for the rest of that room as the girls' Christmas presents have well & truly taken over!!!

Plus, there is also a corner of paperwork, boxes & all manner of junk that we have dumped.....

We will get there slowly but surely!



  1. Hello there, even though my bubs are all grown with bubs of their own, when they stay here the Grandbubs literally take over the house, there are trails of toys from their bedroom downstairs...very tiring but love it. Your house looks very nice and neat.

  2. Isn't it nice to take down the decorations and feel like your room has grown!
    Happy New Year to you and your family, I hope 2012 is kind to you and that you get all you could possibly wish for xxx
