In February I was planning on doing a little something every day around the house to make it look better in the hope that would help with my usual February blues. I wasn’t all together successful, and looking back I think that I perhaps managed something every couple of days.
I didn’t achieve everything I wanted but I did clear off a few areas and make some bits of our home work better for us. I bought much needed greenery into our house and have definitely found that I love having plants around. I have never had any luck at keeping them alive so I am starting small with cut flowers, bulbs and succulents.
I have managed to keep the surfaces that I cleared mostly clutter free which is great. Even just one or two places in each room really helps with the feeling that I am drowning under the clutter. I am very proud of those little oases of calm.
There are still some problem areas though that I am struggling with. Anyone got nay recommendations of what to do with the reams and reams of ‘pictures’ that the kids draw? We have the best on the fridge, I keep the special ones but every day there are half finished pictures that I get told off for moving from the table, and that they ask for again.
And now March is here. February didn’t seem as bad as other years. My new ‘habit’ in March is going to be walking every day. I will Instagram my daily walking pictures and I am hoping to do at least 10,000 steps a day all month. Three days in and my legs are aching but I am loving walking. Can’t wait to walk into Spring (cue montage…)
