90p a bunch from the farmshop. I bought them on Thursday but by Saturday evening they were going brown and crispy. They were surprisingly noisy. All Thursday afternoon as they opened their papery buds they made sudden and loud cracking noises.
It seems like every blogger I read is Kondoing. I haven't read the book but I am also Kondoing albeit accidentally. I've long been a disciple of the less is more creed. I abhor the idea of being burdened with stuff - useless stuff, unnecessary stuff, ugly stuff, forgotten-about stuff. I find purging my house of the unnecessary immensely satisfying and therapeutic.
I am pleased to say that Katie, formerly known as The Child Least Likely to Get Rid of Useless Old Junk, has become a convert. She voluntarily turned out five binliners full of stuff for recycling/donating/landfill and felt very much better for it.
Yesterday I tackled the books in our front room and reduced two Billy bookcases of books to one Billy bookcase of books. Charlie joined in with enthusiasm which was wonderful as I was fed up of dusting his unread books. We have also whittled our dvd and cd collections down and chucked out the old video tapes which have now become obsolete.
As for clothes, well, there is little I can do to simplify my wardrobe. I read an article about reducing one's wardrobe to 33 pieces (not including underwear) and full of enthusiasm set to only to find I had 21 pieces. I have 4 pairs of shoes, 5 if we include my flip flops. I have one handbag.
Even my yarn stash is paltry -a couple of skeins of sock yarn is about it.
There were four photos of daffodils but I decided less was more.
~In other news I fixed my washing machine all by myself for free. The filter needed cleaning. Now it works perfectly.
