I had wondered if a post just about thoughts would get any response. Thank you so much for leaving your encouraging comments about my last post. I have been thinking about de cluttering some more. For me I have decided to take the gentle route. I am not going to think of it as a big project. I am not going to stress about it. I am going to gently go about my lovely daily life and put 3 things in a Charity bag. I am not going to get in emotional wrangles. If I pick it up and it hurts at all it can go straight back... Maybe until another day. If it just looks at me, off it goes to pastures new! I really don't need 10 hairbrushes!
Thank you for popping in and I hope you join me. 21 articles a week will soon add up.
So, my 3 articles today were 3 boxes of Passata. They were received very happily at my local Food Bank.
No harm in thinking outside the nine dots with this de cluttering malarky!
One other thing I am going to tag on to my posts is a review of 2 books. It follows the same theme really. I have finished 2 over the festive period. 1 will be going to Charity and 1 to a friend. We love the same books so I know she will want to read the one which is good enough to keep.
Well,not literally but you know what I mean!
I loved "The Island" by Victoria Hislop.So I was looking forward to reading "The Thread" but no,not for me. I actually found it quite boring. So that is the one for the Charity Bag.
Whereas, "A Street Cat Named Bob" by James Bowen I found delightful. A story full of hope, told in such a simple way. All about new beginnings. Loved it! So, that is the one on it's way to my friend.
We are funny because we save books for each other. We have been friends for 40 years and I always try and read the books really carefully so that she has the enjoyment of a book in a nearly new condition. I love a brand new,uncreased book. Just like clean sheets.
That brings me to another challenge. What do I do with the Kindle I was given as a present? I have tried to make friends with it. But,no.not for me? eBay I guess. We shall see.
