When we moved back in May 2009, we had a lot of stuff. Seriously, tonnes. Some of this stuff is still in boxes in the back room of our house. The rest either has a home, or is cluttering up the surfaces and floors of all the other rooms in the house.

My friend has gone on an American road trip for three weeks, and I challenged myself to sort out all this clutter and mess while she was gone. She's been gone a week and a half and I'm starting to panic. It started out well, I purchased some new flat pack storage to help give some of the clutter proper homes. Ian made the bookcase, and I decided that I'd store my photo albums on it. This opened a big can of worms, because I had a large box of photos waiting to go into said albums sat around, and so, instead of just putting the albums in their new home, I spent 4 days sorting photos. I'm yet to complete this photo sorting task, but I have 11 full albums for my bookcase so that's progress at least!
I've still got so much to do so I'll not really be blogging until it's done. To be honest, if she gets back and it's not done, I'm pretty sure she wont shout at me (actually, she might!) But I'll definitely shout at myself. If I had a tidy house, think of all the time I'd have to do things I want to do. Like, just sit reading my magazine without noticing the clutter and feeling guilty. And having people round at short notice without getting stressed out.
