Excuse the alliteration (T...T...T...T) - couldn't resist :)
I am sorry I haven't been posting again, but I am really tired. For the past 5 days, Elizabeth and I have been preparing for our HUGE GARAGE SALE. We are going to go all out on Saturday and Sunday and try to get rid of 7 years (probably more) of accumulated (much loved) junk.
We have toys (that the children have owned since birth) clothes that I have owned since then and books, games, puzzles, etc, etc, etc. It is going to be massive; but of course it all needs sorting, pricing and getting ready for the 2 day push.
Whatever isn't sold is going to be donated to charity, so on Monday or Tuesday next week, I will have a far emptier house. We are long overdue for a serious declutter.
I have also realised that I hate fashion. In the 'good old days' one would buy new clothes when the old ones wore out - then some 'idiot' invented fashion. Now each season we are convinced to trade in perfectly good clothes for new colours and styles, when the old ones were just as good. So my new motto is - I am going to keep my comfortable, good clothes and if I buy something new, I am getting rid of something old - instead of keeping it because it is still good.
I will take some photos soon of all our stuff and send you all some pictures from the sale days, but in the meantime forgive me as I wade through our possessions.
