Cleansing - Part One

I can't thank you enough for the wonderful comments that are being left for me. Honesty I don't know where this strength is coming from except that I know I have to do my very best to minimise the long term impact of this for the Princess. I can tell you its hard!!!

Heather, Natasha, Connie, I really want to slap him, in fact I would like to do much worse!!!

Some of you wondered where the third party was in all this, well the STUPID thing is she lives in town that is approx 530 km from Auckland, a 5 to 6 hour drive. She is a previously married woman with a 7 year old daughter. Says a lot doesn't it!

Anyway, enough of that and them!!!!

I had a great day yesterday, completely changed around the front room (grown up room) that Babes used as an office. It had a big desk and a rather dark looking sofa in it which has now gone - along with him!!!

I washed the walls down, washed the curtains, cleaned the windows, vacuumed the floor and fluffed!!! Also wiped the window frames and door frame with lemon juice and flicked water through the room to dispel negative energies.

It is now light and airy, clutter free and smells divine from the rose oil I have been burning in there.

First photo is what you see when you walk in through the front door,

and then looking slightly to the right,

and then turning right around and looking back to the front of the house.

Do you love my piano? It is very old, it belonged to my Granny.

I am hoping that this week I will be able to spray the cane arm chairs white and sew new covers for the cushions. Also not happy with the piano stool, I can't paint it as my Mum would kill me (it is hers!), maybe I will sew a cover for it.

I am slowly moving through the house, cleaning, decluttering and cleansing as I go.

Went back to work today, it was nice to see my work colleagues again and catch up with everything.

Tomorrow, I have work in the morning, a doctors appointment and then a few hours before the Princess needs to be picked up from school, just enough time to start fluffing in the next room on the list which is my bedroom!

Sleep tight!

Take Care

Hi Rachael,
Sounds like you are doing such a wonderful job keeping it all together for the princess, I hope that cleaning the house from top to toe is also helping you to sort out your emotions.
Best wishes.

Love your piano...It really is just soooo pretty...Sounds like you're keeping yourself busy..

Connie said...

Chase out th' rat and gain a new decorating experience, sugar! Sounds good to me. Let us see the finished product when you've painted the chairs and frou-frou'd up the "living room" there, chickee. Things will now get better!

Linda said...

Your piano is a treasure and how light and airy your room looks...very nice. I think I can smell the devine rose oil here:).
Your SIL is a dear and good for you for the way you are handling all this especially for the Princesses sake...hugs, Linda

Hi Rachel, keep your chin up.
You do sound like you are doing the right thing. Changing the house around.
It is not easy with a child but she will be a comfort.
I am going to be in NZ in couple weeks. I always enjoy going 'home'. I do think Maori says it so well, Kia toa, kia kaha, kia manawanui.
aloha Lilla

loving the clean and airy look of that room! I think a lovely little slipcover would be just the thing for the piano stool : ) Such a lovely and fresh start for you and P!
