Document Your Life – January ’14

I have to apologise yet again, for not being around much on this blog. If you watch my youtube channel you’ll have realized I’m doing almost daily vlogging over there. I’m enjoying the filming and editing and find I’ve built myself a nice little community of friends. However, I don’t want to abandon my blog or my friends here. I’ve been pretty sick the last few weeks since coming back from Nelson Bay but am starting to return to “my normal”. So hopefully, with feeling better and the girls settling into their new school, I’ll be able go into a better routine here. So please bear with me.

In the meantime I came across a great idea called document your life, with just captures in video format, what you’ve been up to each month. So even if you don’t like the longer video you might like to check this one out.

Kitchen Declutter and Spring Clean


Well, it’s that time again when I needed to declutter and spring clean the kitchen. If you’d like to see the process you can check out my videos. It took me a good week and half working on just a few cupboards at a time, as time allowed.

I totally forgot to take photos of the before, except for the pantry…. and I’m not even sure you see much difference in the photos.



I’m really happy with the finished project, but unfortunately it hasn’t stayed looking quite this way… not surprising when so many meals and snacks are prepared here each day :-).
