Narnia

Narnia...OK its just a plain wardrobe. Did I say plain, Man look at those colours, there was a time when I would wear nothing but BLACK. So after four days of work, I have reduced the ironing pile by two thirds, I have caught up with most of the washing, swapped over my winter clothes to summer, and sorted through my wardrobe. I was inspired by a blog I read last week, this lady had the best set up for her clothes and shoes, it was amazing, (wish I could remember which one it was, sadly my favourites in AOL have all got mixed up...again) OK so mine is smaller scale, but no excuse for the mess it was in. So here are a few shots of the new improved version, If any of you know Boden you will know what a victim I am, skirt after skirt, I warned you I was a little sad!!!
Now I could not leave the shoes out, I wear ONLY boots in the winter as I so hate to wear tights. I feel it is now safe to put them away, so it was a change around from these heavy things to all my pretty flowery summer shoes. I have quite a small foot so I am lucky enough to still fit into children's shoes, this is great at sale time!!! SO a lot of my shoes are children's, have you not ever looked at the cool stuff you get for girls and wish they made them bigger? No...OH so it is just me that does that!!! Anyway I keep them in boxes so I maximise storage space, as you can stack without damage. Last years spring cleaning had me taking photos of all my shoes to put on the front of the boxes. I even printed them all out 'box size' they are still sitting there waiting to be put on, this year I took the lazy approach and just wrote on the boxes with a BIG marker!!! See I try to be organised, it just does not always come together. Now to start on the children's rooms...

I'm always amazed by people with a lot of clothes. I wonder how on earth someone could find so many lovely articles. My closet is woefully lacking. I wear the same seven outfits every week it seems. And look at all those shoes! You're an A-number one shopper if I ever saw one!

Being a fellow Boden addict I know exactly where you are coming from! And I also used to have a mostly black wardrobe - maybe having kids makes you re-discover colour again? I'm glad to see that we also share a passion for shoes although it looks to me like you are far kinder to yours than I am, snuggling them away in boxes rather than flinging them into the bottom of the wardrobe to get all mixed up and covered in dust bunnies! I think you're doing an admirable job of spring cleaning - I certainly am in awe of your ironing abilities - shifting a 5ft pile is no mean feat. Hope you get some relaxation time this coming week - sounds like you've had a busy time recently!

I LOVE Boden, it's a bit expensive so I often pick things up on Ebay. It's wierd but since I stopped working I have stopped wearing black too, it was like my uniform for work but now it's colour all the way!

hi, I have commented on an older post so no one will notice it but you :-) I love your tribute to your cousin and (I saw you typed about your dyslexia)wanted to say you have put ' a vest for life' rather than a zest for life. I wouldn't say normally but thought you'd want to know. It woulda made me chuckle except it's too sad. A VERY BIG hug for you. xxx
