The Gallery - One Word

The theme at The Gallery this week is one word.  It seems like a gift, but it's tricky.  Take a look at this and tell me what word comes to mind...



Stuff? Clutter? Rubbish? Junk? Kids? Life laundry? (that's two!) Memories? (please I am trying to be unsentimental about this stuff).


Today we had a clearout.  Mr A and I attacked the house and took our clutter to the charity shop before we drowned in stuff.  It feels good.   The stuff that was holding us back is gone.  Clearout.  I like that word a lot.

Find some more great words in pictures at The Gallery this week.

Thanks Pippa and Momonawire
I must confess I did find some rather fab stuff in cancer research. But for me not the kids.

Who's the little bright green chap peeking out from the middle of the pile? Is it a duck? I like him: I hope he found a good home! ;-)

How did you get a picture of my boy's room? ;-)

Seriously, I just threatened them with cleaning it myself via trash bag. They are 14 and 9 for goodness sakes! Sigh.

Trish - it's a dinosaur you post balls into, he has been driving me mad for four years. Average total playtime in that time - four hours?
Mother of Innovation and Nic - thanks :)
Carrie - ha ha. I haven't even started in Miss L's room yet.
Christine - Mr A had to hold my hand, although by the end it was me telling him to stop deliberating over a bag of wooden bricks.

NOthing feels better than a clear space that had been chaotic clutter. Well maybe a few things, but....:) x

Sigh! That clean space looks very appealing! Good on you! I've signed up our car for the school car boot sale next month and am preparing for a declutter! I love it when we go on holiday with only a few simple toys - I spend much less time cleaning, sorting, organizing and much, much more time creatively playing and enjoying time with my children.
