I chose to do the entry today being an easy room as I woke up tired.
But if I stop this process ill land in heap, I just know it. So im trying to keep the momentum going.
Navarh and Adelin are not that far off from arriving with their boxes. Just a couple of weeks or so.
Ill apologise now if I document stuff a bit too 'over the toply'. I need to write this in here for my head space and reflection for a later date.
I started by taking everything off the cupboard and taking it to another room
to 'see' it properly for what it is. This surface is the prime spot I put everything that comes into the house that is fragile and it waits for a home in a cupboard somewhere.
Normally light fixtures are perched on top.
Ive been gathering some for one day when we build.
In this process I worked out that Mali's favourite books dont have a home yet, I have no place to put that lamp as where id like it to go in the lounge will see it broken, and I definitely dont want the Mr's grandmother's fur stole (complete with body parts attached) hanging off one end.
Perhaps its time for the keepsakes box?
There are books and a bit of stationery to go through plus some out of date home magazines. I need to wait for the Mr to get home from work to help me with the books. Half of them being his. Meanwhile Ill tear out the magazine pages I dont want to say goodbye to and they go in a design folder to keep, and can go through the stationery drawer contents.
To the untrained eye it doesnt look too bad. Thats because ive sorted this recently.
I failed! as there are five notebooks, four staplers (we never staple anything. ever),
staples DUH, and five rolls of sticky tape which I do use but five is crazy. There were a few business cards that went straight into my purse cos I go through it weekly and if I need them, I need them and if I dont theyll get chucked from there. Or maybe typed into my phone.
My other problem is near the front door.
That is the op-shop bag ready but those ornaments are annoying to vacuum around.
They need a better home.
Im only really half way for now but thought id show you what ill be up to tonight
over a nice cold beer. Its hot and where my tiredness is coming from I suspect.
