Isabella has been interested in the stockmarket since the 1980s. With the new year (2009) approaching she decided to do something about it, so she started a blog (www.isabellasinvestments.blogspot.com).
Currently on maternity leave (2010) and finding herself still spending too much time playing Alchemy on the Popcap website, she started a second blog just on her random thoughts (mymindsephemera.blogspot.com).
A quick update to check in and compare where things are now to where I started.
Here's what my daughter's room looks like today:
Here's what it looked like when I started decluttering:
I think there's been some improvement there. Here's another set of "after and before's" from a different angle:
When I took the photos earlier today, I was feeling quite annoyed about how much work was still to be done. But what I notice now, is that while the room today requires a bit of a tidy up, there is not a lot of decluttering work left to do, and what is left to do (eg remove the bookcase on the right, clear the shelves of the remaining bookcase for toys) is straight forward and does not require a lot of "what am I going to do with this?" type thinking.
