Feeling lively!

Thanks for the comments - several of you said how liberating/freeing and good for the soul decluttering is - oh yes it certainly is!  I feel galvanised into action, steaming through rooms, cupboards and boxes, haven't felt this lively in months.

Yesterday husband sorted more stuff out of the garage (there's now almost room to fit a small car in there, shame ours is a big one 😂).  I filled a dustbin bag with old clothes, and another with old shoes and slippers....why on earth didn't we chuck out old slippers at the time we bought new ones? 😜 Betty 'helped' me with the shoe sorting - she kept grabbing one at a time and running off with it, a lovely exciting game as far as she was concerned.  She does make me laugh, every day.  She's intrigued with all the sorting out, by my side all the time, watching, sticking her nose in boxes etc, sniffing everything.

We did another tip run, after having to queue for an hour the day before, it was fine yesterday, straight in with no queueing.  There's no restriction or appointment system at our tip...there was some restriction on car numbers to begin with but they've done away with that now, all back to normal.  The only current restriction is that the staff won't help with unloading your car, for social distancing purposes I guess.

It's gratifying to see empty spaces appearing - the wardrobe in the spare bedroom is now almost empty, one double cupboard in the utility room completely empty.  Today I'm going to tackle the plastic boxes under the beds....spare bedding under our bed, boxes of books and yarn under the spare room beds.

Dc, you commented that joy shines out from my posts at the moment...yes I do feel fantastic right now and there are several reasons for that, some of which I can't mention, sorry.  Suffice it to say that, Covid stuff aside, life is looking good at the moment, long may it last.

  3. Lovely to see you are more in control of your lives, I do love a good sort out, I think we are all hoarders, and hold on to stuff for too long.

  6. It's good to see you are feeling so much better than earlier in the year.
    Enjoy the decluttering. I've run out of stuff to be rid of now except for Col's might-come-in-handy things still left in the workshop

  9. Yes, you are definitely sounding very cheerful at the moment :-)

    Decluttering is very good for the soul isn't it, we still have bits to do but as we've been working on it for a long time there's less and less. We've been sad that we haven't managed to sell at a car boot sale this year and are thinking that possibly we will have a garage sale at our house in the next few months or just before we move, whichever comes soonest. With our large open garage space and room for parking for about 6 cars at a time we could just about do it ... and it would get everything gone in one fell swoop.
