5 on 5 is Sandie's idea (read her blog here), although when I do it I usually "bend the rules" a little bit, as my pictures are usually taken over a longer period than 5 minutes.
This weekend I decided it was high time to sort my wardrobe and clothes, as I have far too many things that either no longer fit or are worn out. However, as I have just joined Slimming World and fully intend to lose about 15 kilos in as many weeks, I am not yet throwing out anything that doesn't fit.
So firstly I emptied the 6 drawers and made a pile of all my tops.
Can you see a bit of a pattern emerging here? Predominantly blue, and a fair few stripes!
I sorted them into piles of vests, T-shirts, tank tops/sleeveless tops, jersey long-sleeved tops and knitted sweaters,
These piles were then sub-divided into those that still fit and those that will fit later this year, and neatly stacked back in the drawers - minus the odd few that went into the charity shop pile.
The next section to tackle was the left-hand hanging cupboard which houses all my shirts and jackets
which entailed emptying the whole lot onto the bed and rehanging it in some semblence of order.
OK it doesn't look a lot different I'll agree, but all the white shirts are on the left, all the jackets are on the right, shoes are neatly stacked and the top shelf also has neat piles.
By the time I got this far I had run out of steam, so skirts, trousers and dresses will have to wait for another day. I did have a quick flick through my dresses and came across this old wooden hanger. How many of you remember the Susan Small brand? A relative by marriage, who was a dressmaker, worked exclusively for them and at one stage I had loads of these hangers, I wonder what happened to them all, as this appears to be the sole survivor.
