Looking after ourselves

Re: Decluttering and home maintenance

@Smc  hard not to feel discouraged (even if it is temporary) if our work is not celebrated.  


We press on ...we are doing it for ourselves which in turn is also as of benefit of those we live with. 


Have been going OK with the vacuum but not the mop here.

@Darcy, he was congratulatory enough once he did find out what it had been like. And told our Younger Daughter to take it easy on me that evening because I'd done masses of work. Smiley Happy
And in all fairness, he'd just come back home from helping Older Son and Older Daughter get their grass cut back to an acceptable level, so we were both tired and sore together.

Feeling just a little bit excited ... electrician had a cancellation so we have a crew here doing some of the minor repair jobs that were needed as well as doing some preliminary work for solar installation.


Bye bye 80s style red light fitting in the kitchen ... 😀

Re: Decluttering and home maintenance

The electrician removed a bank heater* from lounge and as a result we were able to rearrange furniture and it is looking heaps better.


Mr Darcy has started sorting through some of the unpacked boxes. The shed stuff has been separated out and we have put aside some things to offer to my cousin including a small bookcase that has sentimental value as his mum made it. We were able to donate some plastic tubs that were in excess of our needs.


*Heater has been put aside to reuse when renovations are done.
