Day 139: This Kitchen is For Dancing But Not For Clutter Castles

My daughter helped me tidy the kitchen last night and then disappeared upstairs saying she had an idea. Half an hour later she came down with this message in a frame which she had created herself on her computer.

My husband and I instantly loved it, as we all do like to be silly and dance around the kitchen. She found the frame in the spare room collecting dust from a shopping spree that we had a couple of years ago. We bought different sizes and never used them.

This got me looking at the remaining clutter lying around including this clutter castle in the corner and the mess on the dining room table.

After we decluttered, my daughter had an idea how to make the table look nicer and suggested putting some decoration in the centre. She then laid the table to show me how different our dining room could look. She put a plant that was on the breakfast bar in a different pot and we picked up a few candles whilst we were at the supermarket this evening. We were really happy with the final result.

She’s got some great ideas and seems to really want to help just like she did with the kitchen cupboards and drawers the other week.

Until tomorrow…

    Strange things are happening whilst we are in lockdown.
    My daughter has recently taken an interest in looking after houseplants, has set to and decluttered her wardrobe and her room, pressure washed the patio, weeded the garden and re-sanded the block paved drive. All things she would never of done prior to lockdown.

    Like me, you’ll look back on this time, when everything slowed down and you got to spend quality time with your family. When you all had much more time for each other. Your daughters ideas have brought value to you all, I imagine your praise and gratitude was warmly welcomed too.
    Make the most of it.
    P.S. The changes look great!

    • Thank you Maria. That’s amazing what your daughter has done. It’s truly a once in a lifetime opportunity that we have found ourselves in that will stay in our memories forever. Have a lovely day 😊

  2. This quarantine has helped your daughters find hidden talents and interests.
