I understand it might seem different, but I have never watched an episode of Mari Kondo on Netflix in my whole life. I haven´t even read her book, although I have considered gifting it to certain people I share a roof with several times.
The impulse to declutter my surroundings hasn´t been triggered externally, I have always had it. Not that I am a minimalist, but I prefer organized places and space around me.
My mother might now think back at me growing up and strongly disagree, so I will rephrase to: Ever since I moved out, I had the desire to have a clutter free surrounding.
With two kids though clutter just seems to manifest out of thin air, and that is not limited to kids stuff. No, quite the opposite! I feel like I spend so much time decluttering kids toys and picking up after them that my own stuff grows rapidly.

November is done and dusted, and tomorrow will be the day I get the boxes with Christmas decoration from the basement and start randomly putting them on available surface spots.
Not kidding here, I am a lost cause when it comes to decorating, no matter how much Inspiration Boards I have on Pinterest.
But I am making an effort, for the kids mostly, as I want them to embrace the spirit of the season.
While we get all festive here, why not take the time and browse through my most recent blogposts, just in case you missed some? And if you did, consider subscribing to my Newsletter here, which I will actually send out once more than me and my mother are subscribed.
I know that having an actual mailing list is uber important for blogs, but given that we share a house I don´t think my mother needs my updates electronically.

October was the month that autumn well and truly arrived in Germany. Up until October 19th it was warm enough to leave the house without a jacket, even in the evenings, something that I only realized when on that day, October 19th, I actually felt a chill walking back to the car with Mr. Loca at 10 pm. Now Germany is not a cold country, but that was unusual.
As it was to be expected, the period of sunny, but chilly weather that makes you take contemplative walks and kick up the colorful leaves didn´t last long either. By the time I write this it is grey and miserable outside, rain drizzling down on what is no longer colorful, but mostly rotten foliage.
Perfect to stay in and have a good old blog read, am I right? Here is what I wrote about last month.
