Thirteen stairs make up our staircase - I know this for a fact due to the countless times I have staggered down stairs with a box destined for the charity shop.

Facebook is an excellent instant solution to finding homes for :-

Filing Cabinet
8 shelves
Cat bed

Yes I am on a mission and I am enjoying it all - very cathartic. The room is becoming emptier by the day, the charity shop is happy, my friends daughter is happy due to the boxes of crafty bits I pass over on a regular basis and I am happy.

One slight change to plan - we are just concentrating on the one room now. Jon uses the 3rd bedroom as his office so the disruption that would be caused if we tried to clear two rooms in one go needs to be avoided. What will happen is once the room is cleared, stripped and plastered it will be left a week to dry. Jon will re-locate into it, allowing me to strip the 3rd bedroom and get the plasterer in. Once finished and dried out then we will decorate both rooms.

The third bedroom has the access door to the loft......ahem!

The loft needs emptying too!

Watch this space - must get on!

  4. Sounds so good !
    My home is very simple and I like it like that but my studio is a mess. I have been working around the main work table but I am cleaning... really cleaning my my studio and it is taking forever !
    But I am really moving furniture around and getting rid of a lot of stuff.

  5. You sure have been busy in the two years since we met in person! The house is going to be completely renovated and you will then not know what to do with yourself! Photos please! :D

  6. Oh good luck Denise and be careful on those stairs! xxx

  7. You are really getting a move on with your clearing and decorating. Well done!
    I am fairly pleased with myself when I've achieved clearing a small corner of a room. I am getting there slowly but surely.
