Grumpy Today

That is what my dog looks like when he's tired and grumpy, and it perfectly expresses how I feel today. Major lack of motivation, although it's getting a bit better now.

Everything on the computer is taking too long, the data allowance has all been used up, and I have to wait till the 25th until everything returns to a normal, less infuriating speed.

Tidying up left me a little bereft, I am a hoarder from way back and very sentimental. I forced myself to be brutal though, and much of my prized possessions (read junk) got tossed. I was telling myself over and over, I can hold onto the memories without holding onto the stuff.
Although I still kept a few things, because the hoarder in me will not die without a fight.
This clean up has left me with positive feelings also, I think I finally got out of a cycle that left me with so much junk. It used to be I would have a tidy up, and keep some stuff, and throw others out. However, next tidy up, the stuff I thought so important to keep would be chucked and new stuff would take it's place. Not this time though! I have never got rid of so much stuff at once in my life!

Next step the wardrobe - this I am going to find infinitely harder than knick knack and keepsakes.

In other news - last post I had a record number of comments! (It was like 10, but this is a big step for me). So I just wanted to thank all you lovely people for speaking up on my blog. It must be the new layout. Also in the process I discovered a few new blogs that I will be getting up to date when the internet is revived. I will also be updating my links with many new exciting ladies!

Peace out my lovelies

Your dog is the cutest thing with his/her floppy ears.

I am a hoarder too. At times I get so mad at all the crap around me but I just can't let it go.
