I really have not been particularly attentative lately, been far too busy working and tidying and cleaning up our home with the view to putting it on the market. Stressful having to do all the paper work and having a proper spring clean and throw out to pretend that we live clutter free which is not the case! Amazing how when you are selling your home you almost have to create an illusion of not living in your home!
It was a good opportunity for me to sort out all my fabric bits in the loft where I have an old Victorian wooden chest full to the brim of fabrics and where I normally do my sewing in the Spring and Summer. It was really rewarding to give a lot away to charity shops too hoping that they will find happy homes to be recycled in.
It was also good fun finding things that I have made and have forgotten about in amongst my sewing bits and bobs.
I am quite keen to sew a few African fabric skirts this Spring, my wonderful mum packaged some beautiful navy African fabrics over to me which I received the other day. Will show you when they are made, I will have to jog my memory on how to insert a zip again.
I am actually enjoying having a rather neat and tidy home, not that we are very untidy normally, but we do live in our home it certainly ain't a museum!
I am feeling a bit nostalgic about potentially leaving our terraced Victorian home, with all it's beautiful character and original features...but am very excited about the 1930's home that we are hoping to purchase. We'll see what happens and no doubt I will log our progress here.
Hope you are well and enjoying the longer and lighter northern hemisphere days and maybe doing a little bit of spring cleaning yourself?
See you all soon
Good luck with the house selling! (I'm slowly pondering whether to sell my little flat in the next year or so, or to save a deposit and rent the flat out to cover the mortgage on something bigger, lots of complicated things to think about!) I love the photos of your home, it looks really lovely.ReplyDelete
A GREAT SPELL CASTER (DR. EMU) THAT HELP ME BRING BACK MY EX GIRLFRIEND.Delete
Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.

There's lots of 'sold' boards up in my area at the moment so I hope you sell quickly, our home was built in 1927, it's not very big but we fit in it perfectly.....well we do if I keep my vintage hoarding under control! Anyway I always think, bigger house....more cleaning! We're off to London tomorrow so I will catch up with you when I return :) xReplyDelete
It's lovely having everything neat and tidy but quite stressful having to be ready to be 'on show' at the drop of a hat. I hope everything goes smoothly and look forward to finding out more about your new abode. xxxReplyDelete
H a ha, that's exactly what I've been doing this past week, decluttering ready for the Estate Agent's visit tomorrow!! Now where did I put that wool??? XXReplyDelete
Good luck with your move. I like clearing and creating stuff, but no matter how hard I try, we seem to accumulate more stuff! Still, as you say it is a home, and it's lived in. xReplyDelete
good luck, it's crazy really how we just get everything done and sorted and then we move! I think it's just human nature. We just keep moving on. I hope you land somewhere good and full of new potential, Heather xReplyDelete
I hope that you get a buyer soon so that you can get back to living your life normally! It is funny that we have to pretend that we are not really there when we are selling a house. I wonder if it has always been like that! Hope that it all goes well. xxReplyDelete
It's hard work living in a 'show' house. Fingers crossed you sell quickly. How kind of you also to pass on your fabrics to good causes xReplyDelete
Good to pop in Penny. I am on a bit of a de-clutter too. Jo xReplyDelete
I have always dreamed of living in a Victorian home with a beautiful porch. I bet you are torn and excited all at the same time. Best of luck with the selling and buying.ReplyDelete
Hello lovely Penny your home is gorgeous and I would swop with you tomorrow. It is always sad to leave something you have worked hard on and yet when it is time to leave we just know that it is right to do so. Have a lovely week Penny, a great post, thank youReplyDelete
Lots of love
Oh it's stressful having to have your house tidy all the time for potential viewers isn't it? Wishing you lots of luck with it all.ReplyDelete
I don't envy you selling a house, I hated the keeping everything tidy just in case the agent rang. The house we live in now is a forever home. Its big too, so very hard to keep clean and tidy, a bit of a forth bridge job! I always like the idea of decluttering especially with all the boys bits and bobs, but it seldom happens without somehow gaining more back! It is nice to refund things though!ReplyDelete
Sounds exciting! I hope your house sells without too much hassle. We're actually part way through a sale on ours (but am so scared of it falling through I haven't made any mention of it on the blog yet). It's taken 16 months to sell and keeping it tidy for viewings with a lively toddler about is hard work!ReplyDelete
Looking forward to seeing the new place. Good luck.
Hopefully you are staying in the area. Hope it all goes well for you. Elinor xReplyDelete
Oooh Penny how exciting! I love a move. We're in a 1930s house. I was never that keen thinking them a bit 'modern' but it ticked all the practical boxes. I must say I love it. Good luck with the selling. Are you going far?ReplyDelete
I am so glad I took the pop in and visit this, one of my fave blogs! GOOD LUCK with this exciting, thrilling, stressful, emotional time of your life. And I smiled at your words about creating an illusion of living in a perfectly tidy house. It reminded me of my friends who have housecleaners who always feel compelled to clean and tidy up before their cleaner arrives!
Your Easter hens in your previous post are so pretty and cheery Penny!
Every good luck with the sale and the move Penny, fingers crossed everything falls easily into place :)ReplyDelete
Awww! So you may be leaving your house, aren’t you? That would be sad. I’m hoping, though, that should the purchase of the new house you want pushes through, you will enjoy it as much as, if not more than, you did your old house. Trying to sell your house can really be stressful, so good luck!ReplyDelete
Well I think your home looks gorgeous and very lived in, in just the right way. I wish I lived near you so I could stalk the charity shops where you dropped off the fabric... xReplyDelete

My Ex dumped me two weeks ago after I accused him of seeing someone else and insulting him. I want him back in my life but he refuse to have any contact with me. I was so confuse and don't know what to do, so I reach to the internet for help and I saw a testimony of how a spell caster help people to get their ex back so I contact the spell caster and explain my problem to him and he cast a spell for me and assure me of 24 hours that my ex will return to me and to my greatest surprise the third day my ex came knocking on my door and beg for forgiveness. I am so happy that my love is back again and not only that, we are about to get married. Once again thank you, Doctor. Baluru. You are a truly great and gifted spell caster.

MY NAME IS "ISABELLA LUCAS" I'm so excited my broken Marriage has been fixed and restored.. My husband is back after he had left me and our 2 kids and moved to D.C with another woman.. When he left me and moved to be with the woman, I truly and really do love him with all I've got and been heartbroken, I have to deal with a lot of depression and needing medical attention having had two heart attack after he left me... Every day and night i think of him and always wish he would come back to me, I was really so hurt and i needed a lot of help anywhere I can find. Then i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested Dr okoso ( firstname.lastname@example.org) can help me get my husband back with a love spell.. So I felt i give him a try. I contacted him and he gave me some spell instructions which I did,, then he did a (Love spell) on my husband. 48 hours later, my husband called me to apologize and that he's coming back home..OMG I couldn't believe, the spell was so fast and then when I got home from work,He was back, he promised he would love me till death and not part with me or the kids again...I want this testimony to inspire everyone around the world who need help in their relationship or marriage..Please contact him Dr okoso the spell caster~ Okosotemple@gmail.com
