A New Day ... A New Look

Welcome to my all new look blog. It such a happy sunshiney background it makes me feel great just looking at it. I have been searching around for a few weeks to try and find something a bit more exciting than boring black and voila! I found it a couple of weeks ago but have been trying to customise the pics to put my own there. I have managed to do it but then when I put it into the header it looks like this http://ncgtestblog.blogspot.com/

Waaaaaaaaaay too small for you all to see how cute I used to be hehehe.

Anyway I got sick of trying to figure it out and have decided to just go with the template version ones for now. If anyone has any suggestions how to fix it I would love some help.

So a week ago I promised pics of my latest de-cluttering of the linen closet and freezer. I know the anticpation must have been torture so here goes. I started with the linen closet. Before it looked like this. It was kinda hard to take a picture of the full length as it's in the small hall and I couldn't get back far enough to fit it all in.

So while I was cleaning it all out I discovered all of these toilet bags. Now we are a family of 3 that doesn't go away that often. How many did we really need? It turns out only 4 - 3 for us and a spare I decided. Of course I had to empty all the various contents from each and throw out all the mankie soap, disposable razors and old panadol wrappers, but I feel so much better now with this little bit of clutter gone.

So here's the end result. I know, I know it barely looks any different but I got rid of 2 sets of old towels, half a dozen hand towels that we never use and a couple of table cloths I had forgotten we had, that's how often we actually use a tablecloth. I also sorted out the baskets at the bottom and threw out the old cosmetics and hairdo stuff that will never see the light of day again anyway.

So that was a week ago, and I also did the freezer but have no pics. I do however now have plenty of room for ice cream and frozen yogurt yaaaay.

Now the other thing that has been occupying my time this week is my little angel started school on Tuesday. A good sign, on Monday night I said we all need an early night tonight and her reply was "yeah because I am going to school tomorrow YAAAAAY". I hope she still feels that way next month when it dawns on her that this is going to be her life now.

So here's a couple of cute pics from our first day. She was quite happy to get to school, and barely gave me a second glance as she kissed me and said goodbye at the classroom door.

I on the other hand made use of the tissues in the hall as I am a great big sook.


So a busy week. Next week is my last week of leave before going back to work so I am going to get the rest of the house sorted out and as de-cluttered as possible. Today, after I finish doing the paperwork for after school care, I am going to sort out no longer needed baby books and toys until I have to pick my angel up at 2. Hopefully finishing the rest of the house will be an easy task as I only have the living areas to do now. Fingers crossed anyway.

See you next time :-)
