Done!




Last day loveliness! Completed lists and beautiful cakes. Bear, wine, flowers, chocolate, a visit from a pupil from years ago and his two brothers, and his very sweet Mum who came to say thanks. Curry, Lord of the Rings DVDs (Andy's choice but I quite like them) and a bit of light internet use, then bed. I would like to sleep for a month, but will be up early doing boring housework. I think.
I have recently found both of these blogs, and I think they are a fun contrast.
The first, A Collection a Day, is interesting in the content of the collections and makes me feel good about how many things I have. (In that I am not alone!)
The second, Unclutterer, is full of great advice, and is going to help me in my de-cluttering aims over the holiday. I read a thing about getting rid of one thing a day on this blog recently and have a growing charity shop pile before I have even officially started!
Also, visit Rebecca here for lovely Haikus. The haiku spirit has left me this week but I am looking forward to visiting the others!

Congratulations! I hope you have a nice, relaxing summer.

I like that the last item on your list has four exclamation marks, heh.

Have fun with the decluttering - you will feel better, honest!! I felt so much better when I did my wardrobe, and finally removed the clothes I knew I would never fit into again ......

I would so love to pop in and waste the day with you now that your time is your own! While decluttering- be mindful- I went on a rampage and am now a bit sorry though I have surfaces!
