shhhhh

The sudden quiet in the house is palpable and welcome. Just seconds ago we had music going, Greg complaining, my in laws talking and the cacophony of noise simply invaded every fibre of my being.

Gregory was taken for a ride with his grandparents while I erm..finish cleaning the house and Dave finishes some home improvements upstairs (i.e finally installs the gates properly on our stairs). We also started dismantling the Christmas decorations and have left only baby Jesus in his crib on our sideboard. The house during Christmas felt like it was cluttered with the many bits and pieces around. And since you might remember me saying that I intend to make my house a home finally, this is where I start doing so!

I already have 3 boxes filled with stuff that I will put up on a garage sale me, my sister & mother decided to organise. There will be more by the end my purging is over LOL but it feels good and the house already feels lighter :)

I can't wait for the new year to start, for me a new year always feels like a new beginning.......ok no I should go and finish my cleaning before little pup shows back up again!
