Today, ignoring the poor little undecorated Christmas tree, I instead set too and started to fill the bookshelves, something I've been itching to get done since the house was redecorated from top to bottom over the last few weeks.
To both of us, a house doesn't feel like a home until there are shelves filled with books.
This built-in set of shelves used to be packed from top to bottom, but since our sort out earlier this year there are now some gaps, and hopefully after some more reading and sorting there will be even more gaps before we pack the books away again when we come to move house.
My ex-shop display cupboard empty and cleaned and back in place ready for filling.
Now that's better!!
But this does highlight that we have lots of sorting out to do with the books still, as when we move this will be our main bookcase. Luckily, as you can see, there are a few gaps where the Christmas cards are and the cupboard beneath the shelves is almost empty.
Oooh, a desolate kitchen corner.
That's better ... a happy kitchen corner.
And this brings us on to the next job ... emptying the teapot. Which now stands in for our Sealed Pot, holding all the odds and sods of change from our pockets and purses, and that gets emptied once a year usually on our wedding anniversary ... late again!!
That poor little Christmas tree will get decorated ... eventually 😉
