After loading up the car with old things and junk to take to the tip, I gently encouraged everyone to have a look through their wardrobes and see if they had anything to add to the donations heap for the charity shops which has been living at the bottom of the stairs for a month or so........little did I think that they would decide to become the fashion police and go through my wardrobe too - I had to fight to keep one or two pieces that I really liked, but they were fairly ruthless! My wardrobe has been considerably thinned out now....
The utility room has shed two defunct dehumidifers, the verandah has been cleared of three old polystyrene incubators which had been attacked by a mouse, and some sheets and pillowcases that I was given have been re-gifted on to the charity shop. Quite liberating, all this de-cluttering!
I have also lost three pounds in weight, according to the scales at the slimming club this afternoon - we went to the earlier session as we weren't bound by the YFG's piano lesson the way that we usually are.
The grass was also cut this morning, and two loads of washing hung out in the sunshine - what a glorious day we have had in the Fens today. Driving through the fields this afternoon was lovely, but the oil seed rape does give off quite a pong, so I have to keep closing my window when we get too close to that. The YFG has washed my car this afternoon too, so I was able to go out in a gleaming black vehicle. Quite swish too.
The FH also got up for about an hour today and had a mooch around the garden whilst we were packing the car for the tip trip. He was pleased to be able to walk around the garden in the sun, and enjoyed being up and about, but was glad to get back to bed to rest his legs again after his exploring session.
Hope you have all had a good day. Craft Club and Worship Lunch in the morning, and then more de-cluttering in the afternoon, I hope xx
