Day 215: Having Fun With Roast Dinner Preparation, and Moving Furniture… Happy Sunday everyone!

Roast dinner prep fun

I’ve cooked a lot of roast dinners in my time, and I think I’ve mentioned before that I don’t really enjoy cooking; however, for some reason I do like taking photos of what I cook. So, today I decided to have a bit of fun and got all creative with the vegetables. It made my husband laugh, and my eldest daughter showed me how to add it as an Instagram story (which all looked very complicated but I’m a quick learner 😀).

Moving the cabinet

After dinner I emptied out the cabinet in the hallway as planned…

Emptying the cluttered hallway cabinet before moving it

It was filled with a mix of vases, ornaments, an old clock and lots of hidden clutter. Once I’d emptied it and taken the glass shelves out, I called my daughters down to help me carry it into the garage. It fitted perfectly in the space I’d created yesterday (if you missed that post click here). This is how clear the downstairs hallway looks now…

Clear hallway

We’re going to get (or make) a couple of simple shelves to put the sky and router boxes on but apart from that we’re going to keep the hallway clear – no shelves and surfaces to clutter up anymore. We also need to do some decorating and change the carpet on the stairs at some point but that’s not important right now.

The cabinet went nicely in the garage and I only put back in it what I wanted to keep.

Using the cabinet in the garage for storage

With just five months to go on my 2020 challenge, I’m really starting to see things taking shape (and I wasn’t even going to include the garage).

If you’re not familiar with my challenge, I updated the wording of it on Day 183 and created my own daily affirmation which is…

I have a clear and organised space in my home, my garden, and my mind,

I still feel positive and motivated that I’m going to achieve what I set out to do and more.

Until tomorrow…

  1. I wish I had a garage, but I want to park my car in it. I have a basement where odd things go and an attic that I really cannot go into in this type of weather so if something goes there it stay until the weather gets cold. Flat surfaces attract clutter so a small out of the way shelf is a great idea for those items. Love the pictures.
