A Sunday Afternoon

Published by at 9:16 pm under Uncategorized

After Church on Sunday, we walked to the local park. I love the way the children trust Jared to push them on the “Swings of Death”. Jared tried to get me on this thing, calling me chicken and doing the whole “chicken noise” thing, but hey, I’m not falling for that one again!The children managed to get Jared on here.He is very brave. His leg at one stage got bent back, so that was a bit sore, but he soldiered on.

For the rest of the week I have been de-cluttering. I have been crazy, getting rid of things that I have kept for over 20 years. I do have an emotional attachment to most things (stupid I know), but if I can find a good home for some things that I really like, I’m ok to let it go. I went through the girl’s room today, that was really hard (for me, not the girls). I took 10 garbage bags in total to the op shop today, and I have some toys for two different playgroups. I might try putting some craft items on ebay, umm, I’ll have to think about that one.Look at the lovely little surprise that I received in the mail yesterday. A lovely little tissue holder from Stephanie who did the softie collection for the flood appeal. Check out all the toys that she has received so far.You can read her blog here:http://monpetitpoppet.blogspot.com/ What a sweetie.

Tonight I am watching “How Clean is Your House”, followed by “Hoarders”. That might be why I have been motivated to clean and sort.Children and books just go together don’t they? I have taken about 100 children books out of my house (that was hard)in the last week. In our local paper a lady advertised that  she was collecting children’s books to give to the QLD flood victims. She will be collecting them for a few months, so if you live near Rowville, Victoria, perhaps you might want to leave some at her door too.

    It is so hard to part with things that have gathered oh so silently over time…good for your finding other homes for things.
