ORDER IN THE HOUSE

A new month....

"By all these lovely tokens September days are here,
With summer's best of weather and autumn's best of cheer"
Helen Hunt Jackson 1830-1885

New beginnings are great aren't they? It just feels good to me turning the calendar over....being on the brink of a new season. I'm starting to feel the need "to do" and get things going. Only 1 week left for me in my current job & it's as if there's something round the corner....a door ajar into a fresh & exciting possibility. I just need to ease it open & get through.

So many ideas whirling round in my mind. Inspiration everywhere I turn. Reading Abigail's post today. Magazines....Blueprint....Coast....believe it or not She which is a refreshingly non celebrity/diets/relationship themed women's monthly & brings Martha S to mind.

Maybe it's that "back to school" mantra....I've got an urge for a BIG sort out....as has my Mum (who's already started clearing out cupboards!)....make lists....rearrange rooms....sort out my pencil case :)

The weather is forecast to rain everywhere in UK tomorrow & I'm quite looking forward to it. It's a good excuse to be in and get some order in the house....not that my house is ever really in order (in my dreams!!) but I'm about to try. I have a meeting arranged for a very very part-time job (1 day a week) but other than that I'm going to spend this weekend on plans & action!!

Have a good one everyone! x

Yes..there is sense of wanting to 'do' things this time of year, and be productive and efficient!! Maybe we are just sprucing up our nests for winter??

Good luck with the last week of work....I am so looking forward to seeing the new things it will bring your way, new doors it will open...a new page of the calendar {of life!} :)

Have a lovely weekend kelly...I am enjoying the rain too!! xox

I love this time of year - it's what I call cardigan weather; I also like Spring - jacket weather.

Magazines are strange creatures, subscribe to one and it will rapidly go downhill. I have to say I have been very disappointed with Coast, but I shall buy She and give it a go.
My only tip relating to magazines to to pull out any articles or pictures that inspire and then ditch or pass on - otherwise they seem to bread down by the side of my sofa.

Hi nesty,
Day 3 of my 'autumn cleaning' is at an end and I'm not too sure I like the changes I have made in the bedroom but, even if it all goes back tomorrow, at least Iknow that there's no fluff under the bed!!
