Hoarders Anonymous

My name is Jools and I am a hoarder.

This will come as no surprise to anyone that knows me.

I long for an uncluttered house. I don't quite understand why I need 11 single bed sheets when there is a kingsize, a double and a cotbed in the house. Yep no single bed.

My handbag has more lip products than my local Boots.

So I am making a stand, between now and Xmas I am going to sort each room and cupboard and be ruthless. I am going to post about it on here so if I feel the need to keep a spare 15 mugs for two adults and a 2 year I will be shamed into being rational.

Wish me luck I'm going in....

That London.

I've always felt I should have been born a Londoner.
My parents were part of the generation that left London in the late 70's to towns and cities within commuting distance.
When we were kids, my sister and I would go and stay with my grandparents at half term in East Finchley. My granddad, who was late sixties at this point, would take us to Trafalgar Square and all the tourist spots.

I love the tube. I can work my way round the map like a Londoner!

I try and get there a couple of times a year to visit my great aunt and at least one tourist day!

Which leads me into my next trip. I will be meeting my sister and her friend for a day shopping and a night at Shepherds Bush for Chris Moyles Live. He's not everyone's cup of tea but I'm a big fan!

Be prepared for a very picture heavy next post!
