Well I made lots of plans for all of the cleaning, tidying and organisation I was going to accomplish today.
Guess how much of it got done!
You guessed it, not a lot.
I did get lots of other things done instead though. Which gives me more time to work on what was the plan for today over the next few days, so not a complete disaster.
However my brain got more than a little distracted. Whilst dusting I always complain about the amount of hassle it is to dust my gemstone collection, having to move loads of small items to dust under them and wipe them down takes time.
My husband’s stock answer is to get rid of them or stick them in a box somewhere.
What would be the point of having things that are interesting to look at if I was just going to hide them away though?
My other complaint is the fact that my candles seem to attract dust.
I know silly things to complain about.
So when I was at a candle party the week before my birthday and saw these candle holders I fell in love with them.
Luckily my husband agreed that I should order them as part of my birthday gift from him.
Candle holders that double up as gemstone displays. Woohoo!!!
I received them today, which distracted me a little, as I had to sort them out and put them out on display with my gemstones inside them.
So although I didn’t get all of the cleaning finished today, I am counting this as a resounding win.
Gemstones are now not sitting on a shelf gathering dust, they are inside my fab new candle holders. (yes I know I will still have to dust them, but going to be a lot easier.)
Win, win. I get to have my gemstones on show and hubby gets to have them put in a container, OK containers, instead of sitting out on the shelves.
Candles and gemstones are on the list of my favourite things to look at, so I am a very happy me right now.
Better go get at least a little more cleaning done though.
