You can tell I haven’t blogged about personal stuff in far too long because today I’m going to talk all about periods. I have probably always suffered a degree of misery before my period, although when younger I wasn’t specifically aware of it. It was only really after having children (and becoming far more aware of my cycle in the process) that it became a thing.
Ten easy, actionable steps you can take today to simplify life and make your days easier to get through. Cut the clutter and the noise by clearing more space, re-thinking your hobbies, building routine into your days and making sure you finish what you start.
This is the first of what will be a regular Friday post that covers more personal, behind the scenes stuff. This is a blog after all. Anyone that knows me will know that I can articulate what is going on in my life far better in the written form, than in any other way.
I did debate for a moment starting another blog and calling it something like The Struggles of a Single Mum. But, just because my children are currently behaving like feral monsters and I feel like the loneliest women on the planet (thanks for that, Christmas TV), it doesn’t mean that life will always be this way. Right?
When you’re feeling completely overwhelmed by clutter (and all the other stuff that also needs doing in life, like parenting, cooking, finances, shopping and cleaning), it can paralyse you into doing absolutely nothing. Have you ever had plans to sort something out the minute the kids are in bed… only to put the telly on and pour yourself a glass of wine instead?
(Surely not just me?)
This is a light-hearted (true) decluttering story of some of the things I cleared out after my Mum died.
