stocking up – or hoarding?

IMG_2016Like most people I’m sure, we have the ‘cleaning day’ once a week. For me this is usually a Monday. A good thorough clean up and then a top up clean on a Thursday ready for the weekend #domesticgoddess 

I’m noticing as the weeks go on I’m slowly starting to have more space in my cupboards and drawers where finally ‘things’ are starting to be used up.

For the last few years we’ve been living between our home in Spain and the UK or UAE. So we literally had double if not quadruple of everything scattered between the properties. But now we are finally living under one roof, we have had so much ‘stock’ it’s crazy.

I actually took these photos at the end of August and planned to put them up on the blog straight away.

I got as far as transferring them from my camera to the laptop and then everything stopped.

I thought it would be nice to have a little Instagram round-up once or twice a month. A post just to show my recent insta pics and maybe go a little more in-depth about them – if it’s needed that is.

Also, in other news, I’ve been eating so much rubbish this week I swear it’s made me feel so lethargic and sluggish. Plus not getting enough sleep isn’t helping matters either. I need CBB to finish immediately haha. I haven’t watched Big Brother is absolute years, but have got hooked this series in the last couple of weeks. Which means having to watch the nightly episodes and then staying up to watch the CBBBOTS too – you now how it is.
