Spring Cleaning

For some reason, today started very early. I was awake at 9.15am, and rather than turning over and going back to sleep we started chatting and then decided to get up rather than waste the morning. This was good news as I was determined that I would be productive today and get the bedroom sorted at long last. Obviously the first thing needed was coffee, swiftly followed by breakfast.

Low fat Quorn sausages, hash brown, eggs, mushrooms and tomatoes, in a very strange move, Hague had the same...Then it was time to face our Everest. The bedroom of doom. I've always been a hoarder, I can't throw anything away, and I like things. There are things everywhere in the house, and the bedroom is no exception. Hence the need for a big old clear out. So out came the furniture, the bed, units, you name it, it got moved and hoovered under. It's quite a good feeling actually - to know that under the bed isn't covered in dinosaur sized dust bunnies, that we aren't going to be killed by toppling junk and I now know that nothing interesting or scary is hiding under the bed. One thing that was hiding under the bed was yet another box of clothes. I had forgotten all about them, and I found several items that are rather lovely, and now fit me once more, one of which was a sz18 Monsoon skirt, which fitted beautifully. Which was rather a good coincidence as my long awaited Ebay win today was for a gorgeous sz18 Monsoon skirt, which I now know will fit me perfectly!

How gorgeous? My wonderful man decided to treat me to it as well, just because. Isn't he fabulous? 

Hague making a sterling effort there after paying for my skirt, he's bloody marvellous :) 

With much texting to TOK and a coffee break in there, we still put in a good 3 hours, and I have quite a lot to still do tomorrow, but we definitely broke the back of it. We broke for lunch, but never made it back upstairs :)

A huge spud, stuffed with egg mayo, cheese triangles and topped with Cheddar, as well as a rather enormous salad, once again, Hague had the same. Very odd indeed! I followed it up with a yogurt before being sent to bed as I looked tired :)

After my lovely nap, my mind turned to the important business of more texting to TOK, catching up on Facebook and chatting away to Angie. Weeks off really are the best :)

Before I knew it, it was 9.30, and I realised I hadn't actually eaten anything, and so decided to throw together a quick meal of cheesey pasta.

Pretty standard fare, I fried off mushrooms, courgettes, peppers and cherry tomatoes along with garlic, mustard powder and oregano whilst my macaroni cooked, then once it was all ready stirred in a tub of LowLow. The mustard and garlic worked really well in it, and will now become a permanent fixture in my cheesey pasta!

Dessert was simple, and came with a side order of JadeyPuss.

Seeing as my t'interwebz is being an arse and taking approximately a zillion years to download any pictures, tonight's blog is a wee bit late, but better than never right?

It's been a busy day today - apart from the sitting and the nap - and it feels good to have been productive at last, and see our bedroom start to emerge. I'll definitely get it finished up tomorrow, and then my mind can turn elsewhere in the house. Funny how when one part of your life starts to come together you start to turn your mind to other things, and feel the need to sort them out too. 

Perhaps this will see me turn into an adult or something?

Nah....never gonna happen :)

You can still sponsor Hague here
