honesty and transparency

I started this blog in order to be transparent about our decluttering journey.  It has grown to become a blog about living, or rather attempting to live a life with a smaller carbon footprint; to use what we have before we buy more; to repurpose; to make, grow and forage and to live in general with less.

Today is an honesty day, a transparent day.  We are planning building works to divide our house into two and we have been redecorating the half we will remain in.  Consequently we have had to move stuff, put stuff aside for donating/selling.  And this is what I am faced with today.IMG_2622

 

Not a pretty sight is it?

The barn has been the dumping ground for the main house and the mezzanine has been the dumping ground for the study.

So all you readers who think that I have a perfectly ordered and decluttered house.  I don’t.  I have a house that is a work in progress.  The redecoration is finished so there is no excuse for this mess.  The builders haven’t started yet and cannot until I empty the barn side of the house over absolutely everything including furniture.  Some will have to be stored to go back in when the work is complete but we can’t keep everything so fairly major work will be required there.

Tomorrow I promise photographs of the finished job 🙂
