sorting on a Saturday ....

..... sorting socks, and wondering how is it possible for there to be so many different shades of grey when I am trying to pair grey socks?

..... sorting the last few bits from the Tesco delivery and trying to tell loaves of bread and pints of milk "you will fit in that freezer!"

..... sorting 54.5 pairs of shoes from the utility room. And wondering "where on earth did that missing trainer go??"

..... sorting the end of the patio which doesn't drain properly - although this isn't my job!

.... sorting out all the art and craft supplies we have accumulated over 20 years.

.... sorting a teenage son's room........ you must be kidding!!

Although I confess, I do usually help him to tidy his room because his is so appreciative of my help and he loves his room when it is tidy - so why does he find it impossible to keep it tidy for even one day??

And finally thank you to Birgitta from "handmadeandoffcentered" for nominating me for the liebster award for new blogs. All rather overwhelming but thank you very much. Please have a look at Birgitta's lovely blog.  

Wishing you all a good week!


  1. Too many grey socks and not enough room in the freezer, that sounds all too familiar! Hope you squeezed it all in. Well done on all of the sorting and tidying, it's a good feeling when it's done.

  2. Lots and lots of sorting. My teenagers room is very untidy, and my freezer won't fit a loaf of bread, hope yours did!

  3. A very familiar scene, although my freezer is currently empty, until later today. So many grey and white odd socks here that never find their mate. And the teenager's room just frightens of!
    Crikey that is a lot of shoes and trainers!

  4. I'm dreading the teenage years - their room & playroom is hard enough to keep tidy now, but at least I justify it by saying they're only little! Not looking forward to the smelly socks and trainers!
    Life does seem to be full of "sorting" though doesn't it, wether it is shopping, washing or accumulated clutter!

  5. Wow, you have been productive! Bet it feels good to get all that sorting done though. We have the same issue with socks, there really are 50 shades of grey! Congrats on your Liebster Award :-)

  6. Looks like you had a busy weekend. Hope you were able to get everything sorted and tidied up. And I also hope you treated yourself to a glass of something very nice after all that hard work. Have a lovely week! x

  7. Goodness you were busy. And what a lot of shoes!! I love a productive day like that, it makes everything feel more manageable afterwards. x

  8. Oh my goodness that is a lot of shoes.
