The big clean up.

I have taken a few days off work to spring clean.  I trust that as I get cupboard and drawers in order and carpets and walls clean, my jumbled thoughts will be put in order as well:)  I trust that as I purge my house of unnecessary things and rubbish that have accumulated over many years...that I will purge myself from negative thoughts.  Wynand's old room became my guest room when he married and it is still filled with things that he left behind.  Lately I have not even been able to scrap because of the untidiness of my it is purge, purge and more purging.

  1. thanks lynett, will do so!! yap, we do need to clean out, makes you feel better for sure!x

  2. Funny how cleaning out some clutter seems like cleaning out you soul too! My cupboard are never cleaner than when I have to mark exam papers, (LOL) anything, ever cleaning- the horror of all horrors -seems better than trying to mark essays.

  3. oh Lynette, after reading your post, i feel so guilty.. have been putting off tidying and spring cleaning for a number of months already, i guess i better do it before christmas.. gosh!! christmas is indeed coming nearer and nearer.. have u prepare all your gifts yet?

  4. Now Reana...I don't even want to think about Christmas yet:)

  5. i think my house need some cleaning up too =P

  6. Purging is indeed very good for the soul.

    After my big shop last week I came home and sorted like a maniac. Revamped our bedroom, bathroom and my sunroom.

    And love the neatness and orderliness of it all. Especially gazing at my gorgeous selection of paper (that i'm yet to find inspiration to work with) in my paper stand!

    You're sounding happier!

  7. Shayne...I guess I have made peace with leaving this in the hands of the Lord...I can't do anything. Cleaning and throwing out stuff is really helping:)

  8. I think it is amazing what other people pick up on...for me the comment I see "tired and a little sad" ...
    Don't get me wrong I read about the purging too...but that isn't what stays with me.
    WIll pray for you.

  9. Stefanie...I did the draft of the post on Saturday...I feel much better today:) See I am smiling?

  10. I see we 'not liking shopping' in common. Great to learn more about you and thanks for taking up the award.

  11. Lynette these posts/questionairres are such fun for the rest of us to read...we all seem to feel like Spring cleaning...maybe it's actually just one of the phenomenon's of Spring...that we all get that urge...and sorry to hear your car saga is still dragging on...I couldn't survive without mine but then I suppose I mainly use it for carting the kiddies around as I am not a shopper either...yawn...;-0

  12. are you going to use your son's old room for your crafting once it's cleared out? that's something to look forward to.

  13. Ja jong - I also purge and sort physically as it helps me to purge and sort mentally!

    Loved the tag - will stash it for a rainy day! (wahahahaha - every day is rainy here at the mo but you know what I mean ne?)
