Operation Tidy is going well but I still have a long way to go before I achieve my dream bedroom as fantasised about here. As Operation Tidy progresses, I will gradually be revealing parts of my room so you have more of an insight into how I live and where I blog from.

TK Maxx - £9.99
I love nothing more than a good candle, but candle wax can be a devilish little sod.

Also, I discovered that I may need to go to Porridge Eaters Anonymous:
