This is my challenge for Lent, not giving up chocolate, or sweets or even bread, but organising my home.
Don't get me wrong, my home isn't dirty, but I do have a lot of stuff!
When we lost Penelope I found myself buying lots and lots of things that I'd never need and now have decided I don't want.
I could collect it altogether and do a car boot sale with it, but with a 7 month old baby, I can't see me getting round to it in all honesty, I'd rather donate most of it to charity shops.
For example, I have 3 typewriters! Who needs 3 typewriters? I have one from pre world war which is in a bit of a bad way. I have a beautiful portable one from the 60s which works well apart from needing a new ribbon. And finally, I have an electronic one from the 80s which still works well! I've decided to get rid of the earlier one...that's it! Lol.
Also, I know I have 2 sewing machines, but I need them both. I have one that's 2 years old and barely broken in and an old Singer machine for display purposes only.
I need to go through my cosmetics definitely! I have finally, after 28 years, discovered the right products for my skin! The items I have hoarded for years needs to go!
And, like almost every woman I know, I could probably do something about decluttering my clothing. I have 12 coats!!! This was never going to end well!

Let me know if you're joining in with me. I think it's better to detox the mind, then you're ready for anything!
