i really did get inspired
i packed up all the things i'm taking to london this round, moved everything for charity into a corner of the storage room, prepared a bag of things for young mums, freecycled a number of things, came across some linen to make a dress, prepared a box of music discs to sell off, sorted out any last clothing to be given away, did two loads of laundry (the very last!) left behind here and made decisions about all of it, cut up an old white t-shirts for rags, began slicing up an ugly stripey tablecloth and rolling up a ball of the pretty stripes to rag a rug with, chose tools out of my toolbox to take to london, polished spice jars to take, put away the camping gear! phew! and managed to cook two good meals! my children were having a very happy, playing on their own day
since then i've decided to try to do one extra task here each day, so far i've gotten my sewing box fixed, and reorganised its contents, and bought myself a good pair of shears to go with my thread-snipping scissors.
