The dining room is the place most of our home ed resources are stored and over the years we have regularly edited the books and other paraphernalia but today I have been ruthless and not gone with the ” Oh but we might use/need that/ oh remember when we picked that shell up on the beach! “ approach, favouring the ( with Milly’s consent ) ” it has been on these shelves for X years and has never been used/ only been used once and will never be used again/ Milly is never going to read that book again ” approach and it’s time to sell it on Ebay/ pass on to someone who can get use from it/ throw it out
There has been a small amount of pictures and other memories put in boxes to go into the loft to stumble over in years to come and re-live some happy memories
I have a cupboard ( neatly organised ) of items for selling on Ebay and a spare room with a table full of things to sell on Ebay. Husband who likes to make fire has had a few fires to burn soooo much paper and cardboard and we have a pile of charity shop items.
Still more work to be done over the next few days but tonight I am relaxing, sitting in my nightie snuggled on the sofa making a new cushion for the Sun room ...
