Two Years On...


It's two years since I tentatively wrote my first blog post. I clearly remember the excitement (and the nerves) of those early blogging days. We'd just moved to our small end terraced house and I was eager to write about the benefits of downsizing. I was keen to share advice on decluterring, write about the philosophy of minimalism and record the simple pleasures of my life. Two years on and I'm still just as keen to share these things with you. The practicalities of writing a blog have got easier. My confidence in technology and photography have improved greatly through writing this blog. However, it's not always easy to juggle trying to live a simple life with writing a blog about it. That's why I'm saying thank you tonight, for reading, commenting, sharing and keeping me going. It's lovely to have this space to share with you and there's plenty more simplifying to come xoxo

    Your blog has a lovely rhythm. It's hard to put into words what I mean but it is peaceful. I think the life you strive to achieve for yourself comes out in your writing about your lifestyle.
    I enjoy reading about your efforts in continuing on your path of a fulfilling simple life
    It is inspiring.

  3. Congratulations on your second anniversary. It's great to share the good things in life with a like minded community isn't it? It will be my third anniversary soon, so I'm planning a bit of a give away.

  6. Congrats on your 2nd blogging anniversary. I admire anyone who can do this regularly and still come up with fresh things to talk about.
    I think it is far less stress when you only have what you actually need. This tablet and broadband are my main " want ",if you like. It is the world at your fingertips.
    I don't have a car or t.v. or auto washing machine.When you have had serious illness (my husband) and can no longer work everything falls into place. The most important thing is time spent together. This is a rented terraced house that we live in but now we have no worries about where the money will come from for any repairs. Its being able to adjust, thats all.

  15. Congratulations Claire! It is a wonderful thing to keep the momentum going. I totally understand that as you enter minimalism/simplicity mindset/habits more, it becomes a more delicate balance between writing about it and living it. I have found that I write about it less now as I just live it. It is literally allowing us to live our dream as we travel for 7 months!!
