The craft room is finally all packed up, I found the whole experience enlightening and learnt a lot about myself. In the end I was unable to throw away all the children's art despite taking the time to take photographs. Some collections matter more than others. I was able to pack up a vast quantity of things for the charity shops but was unable to give away anything that had been gifted to me. It is these little things that make me, I don't think I am going to change now and in truth I don't really want to. I value things that have been bought for me, the time and effort that family and friends have given is appreciated. For now I have packed a whole lot more than I thought I would but if need be I will sift through it all again at the other end.
I thought my wardrobes would be hard to sort through but in fact thus far this has been the easiest job. Shoes are my weakness...
We are now eating out of the freezers, so apart from a little fresh produce we are hoping not to spend anymore money on food. The menu for this week is quite luxurious, using up a lot of things left over from Christmas. Yesterday we had a beautiful creamy broccoli and stilton soup with a date and walnut bread. I can report this was scrumptious, there is enough for lunch again today.
I have finally finished the crochet throw and have made a start on the second one. A nice break in the evening to sit down and relax with.
What possessions would you find hard to discard?
See you soon.
