    Just a quick pop in!
    Miserable Monday - very wet & still drizzling & very dark :( perfect knitting day but unfortunately I was supposed to be doing some outside work today including sm trip :o C’est la vie :D Think that as it is sooo chilly I will have to bite the bullet & put on the heating - I usually try to hang on until November :( The changeover to winter bedding will take place today.

    Have evicted a slug from the front doorstep - it obviously wanted to come in :rotfl:

    See you later

    Ah it s been a while my dears, soooo many posts to catch up on!

    I’ve hit my target now and can’t find my last post to find what number I was up too.

    Lots of decluttering done, three trips to the charity shop. But life and puppy have gotten in the way for recording it all.

    I promise to try to do better from now on.

    I'm back: it's been about ten days since I posted and I think if I haven't reached my target, I'm very close. I'm not intending to stop though.

    Most of this latest lot of decluttering was done in a couple of days in the ongoing clearing of Mum's house. I was feeling a bit under the weather as I was short of sleep, so I mostly went through old papers. I found some treasure including my Grandma's letters to Dad during the war, which I've brought home for safekeeping. I also found a lot of bits to throw out: 'paper decisions' can take as much energy as bigger things but there are a lot of them in the recycling now.

    There are also some oddments decluttered from home but I'll lump them all in together:

    Candle lamp to charity, glass lid broken and binned, dock plant that was growing in a gutter, 2 dud pens, 1/2 jar of coffee that had gone disgusting, blunt scissors in metal recycling, 2 hardened paintbrushes, 2 fish-related items given to a friend who likes fish, 2 magazines, 7 plastic bags, 5 booklets and 117 pieces of paper.

    Total 142.
    Previous total 1899/2019
    New total 2,041! Made it! :j:j:j

    Could I possibly make it 2,500 by the end of the year?

    Evening everyone.
    Not much decluttering being done at present, except for decluttering my energy but come Friday that'll be changing and I'm back to normality....... and onba weeks break from work altogether:T:j

    I have sold 5 items in Ebay though so not too bad, they're getting posted tomorrow.

    Weather has turned very cold here so summer duvets have been removed and winter duvets put on.
    My target during my holiday is to tidy up and declutter the attic again, as we've just been putting stuff up there until later and later never arrives lol.

    587 - Another three things posted.

    588 - Hand Cream used up - container recycled.

    Did manage to remove felt pen marks off a cushion cover so will try & sell the pair I have on ebay as they are rather special just not needed now.

    592 - 4 things posted including the cushion covers so that went well.

    602 - large bag of plastic etc to recycling bin.
