"The more you have, the more you are occupied. The less you have, the more free you are"
i am on another cycle of not going to work and being at home seems to keep me well occupied. today i decided i would try to rationalise some boxes of "stuff" from my wardrobe. i haven't looked at the stuff or years so i should be able to just bin it but you know how that goes, dont you?
i have a look and find all kinds of things that i'm not quite sure what to do with: a bag full of ribbon & lace from the sewing box of my grandmother, dead twenty years. silver cake forks black with tarnish could be beautiful but i dont live in a way that really appreciates those genteel accessories. there are photos and cards from my courting days, cards welcoming new babes, postcards never sent, random bits of stationery, the first fathers day card i gave my husband, reels of cotton, paper clips, outmoded cookbooks......
maybe i can get two boxes down to one?
