Little bits, tiny steps, slow but sure

Everything cannot be done at once so today in the de-cluttering department - 

shoes, clothes and books went into the CS bag,

cleaning department - 

hoovered downstairs and upstairs, cleaned the loo (the loo seat came down on my thumb - ow, ow, ow!),

kitchen department - 

made a stew from last of the onions, veg and an end from DH's steak
and made bread in a terracotta bread dish which was a gift for my birthday,

give-away department - 

visited some friends and gave some daffodil bulbs to them (we'd ordered too many),

make department - 

added some more rows to a scarf,

tidy cupboard department - 

sorted another wardrobe,

relax department - 

read the newspaper and some chapters of 2 books I have on the go,


re-charged the Kindle

care department - 

stroked the pusscat and made sure she took her medication (she had 3 teeth out yesterday - worrying times!)

drinks department -

Enough done - where's the sherry?



  1. My you have been busy, you deserve a sherry x

  2. I've had a similar day doing seemingly small things, which actually add up to quite a lot actually.

  3. Awww, hope pusscat's ok after her trip to the dentist, this getting old lark is no joke. I always wonder how people can have more than one book on the go at once, I'm sure I'd get mixed up with them both if I read more than one at once.

  4. Very energetic. I love the maintenance department! Sounds like a great plan to follow each day.

  5. Very proactive. Sherry well deserved:)

  6. What a fabulous day you've had. Sherry at the end of that sounds GOOD!! :)

  7. How soon before we send out the search party??
    I have a reader who works by the principle of a minimum of 'a drawer and a chore' a day. Baby steps is FlyLady's mantra as well although I've never heard FL mention the toplle as a reward for all the hard work done during the day lol

  8. Sherry well earned !!

    I love that Tear and Share dish :-)

  9. Great day, well done. May I ask where you purchased the bread mould ? It's wonderful.

    1. It was a gift but if you type in Tear and Share in Google there are quite a few places it can be found. Here's one -

  10. Oh gosh! You are making me feel guilty! This was the year I was going to totally de-clutter and haven't even started yet!

  11. Oh, oh, oh - I like / love your terracotta bread dish...! Break of as big a chunk as required, slather with butter, and eat whilst warm. Yum :)
