There’s no excuse for messy cords when there are so many remedies out there. You can wrap ’em, hide ’em, combine them or do something crazy and off… er, on… the wall.

Spring clean on an Autumnal day

Before we even got out of bed this morning Andre said “I might just have a good tidy up today.”

Hallelujah! This is what we’ve had to look at while sitting on the toilet for the last lots of months:

It seems today might be the day it will find its rightful place, which is absolutely not in the bathroom! Kind of embarrassing to reveal such a photo… yes, this old kitchen drawer has become the “toolbox”, which essentially is a dumping ground for all tools that haven’t otherwise been put here:

This, believe it or not, is the cupboard in the  kids bedroom – despite being only a few weeks new, it fast became a good place to put all potentially dangerous tools and substances out of reach of one inquisitive toddler (as opposed to the “toolbox” above, which may as well be his toy box). Obviously, it needs some attention before we can move said toddler into his new bedroom.

Fingers crossed we have a tidy bathroom and cupboard by the end of the day! Here’s to my brave husband who will attempt to find space for all these essential items in the garage… which is a very, very scary place folks. Take a look:

Aaaargh! The roof is too low for Andre to stand up in, so fair enough right?
