Following my terrible day yesterday, today was much better. I would just like to apologise for sounding off on my blog about it, but thank you so much for your kind and constructive words of support. I feel much better today and am getting back on with things at home.
Today, incidentally, was the day of the Give and Take and the pile of items in the spare room that I needed to take was calling my name as soon as I'd got out of bed and got dressed.
OH had headed out with the dog in the car to go for a walk and to get some mulch for the garden, so in readiness for his return, I stacked everything in the hallway, ready to put into the car and go. Here it all is.
Quite an obscene amount of stuff. If this is what I managed to find to donate in just a few months of sorting, it scares me to think how much more stuff is still left to uncover.
In addition, there was this IKEA table top and legs that we removed from LB's bedroom back in February and has sat in the living room ever since.
The spare room now looks much better and I can actually pretty easily walk between the bed and the fireplace now, for the first time in two months.
There's still the one box to take to a local CS, but I'm planning on doing that as soon as I get the chance. At least now the next round of decluttering can begin, starting in this room and the living room. Bring it on.
All of the above items were taken to the Give and Take, and although I did promise to take some photos at this one, I was well on my way before I realised I'd forgotten the camera. I will definitely do so at the next one, which should be in the summer, as I'm sure I'll have more items to take by then. I was just a bit too stressed this time around too, as I was on a tight schedule to drop everything off and then get to the gym for my Saturday morning class.
