So it’s 2014 and everyone is making new year resolutions. For me a resolution is about making a change in your life that sticks. It becomes a new thing you just do. Not something you do just for January (*cough* unused gym membership anyone?).
So I’ve grabbed myself this planner and a new Filo Fax and I’m making goals.
G and I decided that we want to waste less food going forward and in order to do this (and save a few pennies), we are meal planning. Now I need to turn every opportunity into a craft moment (of course), so here’s our blackboard wallpaper list to remind us of dinner plans and cleaning jobs for each day.
The blackboard wallpaper is super easy to apply and as we are renting it is a perfect solution to a dull kitchen, as it peels off without leaving any residue.
We are also setting ourselves a weekly goal for something we do together. This week we are finishing the Harry Potter movies as we hadn’t seen them before and we recorded them over the holidays.
I used these chalkboard pens to write on the blackboard, but in future I’ll be using chalk as they are not that easy to rub out (supposedly with a wet cloth).
As well as the meal planning, I will be keeping on top of my cleaning. Especially since our little lounge makeover.
I usually let the house get into a state then blitz it, so I have added daily cleaning to the blackboard to make life a little easier.
Anyway, this ‘pet hair eraser’ is blimmin’ awesome. Each day I come home, Tammy has shed some clump of fur somewhere around the house from dashing around playing with her toys. 5 minutes with this hoover and we are back to non furry house.
The cord is super long so it makes it easy to do the stairs and the amount of my hair it picked up too was insane. Worth it for non pet owners too!
And yeah I used it on my trousers after Tammy sat on my lap. She’s cute though right?
I have also been using this little tool on my sofa and her scratching post base which picks up a ton of hair.
So this is my life from now on. Domestic goddess with a cute cat and a Potter fan. I’ll check back in a couple of weeks to let you know how it goes! If you’re interested in any of the items mentioned, they can all be found on Amazon.
