Decluttering and Updating

I think the brighter days are already having an effect on me as I'm enjoying decluttering in between work, though I still like the cold darker days too! I've already cleared out one kitchen drawer and sorted out recipes I've cut from various magazines, sticking them in an old recipe book husband bought me many moons ago. I even made a big pot of soup at the weekend, in between walks, and a fruit loaf is about ready to come out of the oven in a few minutes - a recipe I haven't tried before.

Love the image above which hangs in one of our favourite coffee shops in Queensferry - isn't it so true!

Now I'm turning my attention to writing files (again) and book covers, either tweaking those I have or deciding if any need updated. Is this just other forms of procrastination? I wouldn't be surprised but I'm also in the mood to organise! Funnily enough, I've noticed several other authors are updating their book covers. Perhaps it's something we need to be aware of now and then.

I'll post any updates another time - need to go and rescue that fruit loaf and hope it's edible this afternoon!

A fruit loaf sounds delicious, Rosemary. Enjoy!

Rosemary, I hate you already (in the nicest possible way). I should declutter. My beloved daughter is busy declulttering. But I just can't be bothered!

Rosemary Gemmell said...

It wasn't bad at all, Rae - will try a different kind next time!

Oh, dear, sorry about that, Frances - you do realise this is another form of procrastination for me?

Decluttering is very on trend, as they say - I don't need Marie Kondo to tell me that I need to sort out my wardrobe. Cut me a slice of that fruit loaf, please!

Fruit loaf sounds yummy and I'm sure it was.

I am constantly trying to declutter but never quite finish. :-)

I keep starting de-cluttering sessions, but get distracted looking through the things I find and never manage to finish. The house ends up looking even more untidy! I hope you have more luck with yours, Rosemary. I think I might be looking forward to spring this year, and the slightly longer days, although usually I never want the winter to end. I love fruit loaf - you've reminded me to make it again xxx

Rosemary Gemmell said...

Absolutely, Julia!

I know what you mean, Carol - where does it all appear from?

Yes, that's a problem too, Joanna! As you know, I like winter too but I seem to be in an early spring-clean mode.
