Tidying things Up!!!

Tidying up is something we tend to do a lot of in our home.
You know there is nearly always something out of place in a home schooled family who are actually living, learning and creating  in the home 24/7.

I like to look around and see our home the way I envisage it in my mind.
A place of beauty, a place of comfort, a place of sanctuary - a place that reflects the members of our family and our loves, interests and values.

Anyone who really knows me knows I love pretty, pink and feminine. But by the same token I like things to be reasonably tidy and to have a distinct stamp that scream out oh yes that is just how I imagined Gae would do it.

So naturally my blog space here has to reflect this for me. After all it is my blog and I like to look at it too.

In line with that  I have been tidying up my side bars a bit and trying to add a drop down bar (again) which I had attempted quite a while ago but gave up as I could not get it to work.

So for some reason I wanted to have one again and was becoming very frustrated with the fact I could not get it to work.
With the help of a friend and the knowledge that I could not add drop downs in my watermark template, (I now have the simple template version,)  I now have those elusive drop downs and have eliminated the old 'labels' down the side bar.

I have also added lots of blogs I like to visit and be inspired by across the top pages section (that page still is 'under construction' so to speak) also I updated the page about our family.
I took off some side bar sections and I am sure my blog  is a lot quicker to load now too :)

My final tidying up is I am creating a page that has all my liturgical and seasonal posts together for each month and this is taking me a little while to get finished as it is quite detailed. But I am hoping to make progress on that very soon.

So with all this tidying up please do have a look at the sections and tell me what you think of it all.

Blessings to you and your homes,
