Almost There!

  • Two car loads to the auction ✓
  • One car load to the charity shop ✓
  • Cleared out lots of odds and ends (one huge box of rubbish waiting for the next skip run) ✓
  • Stuff to be sold on Gumtree/eBay identified and photographed ✓

I'm counting yesterday as a successful day. I could have done without the heat but despite that, I completed everything I'd planned to do and more. I'll leave it till the weekend to finish off the adverts for the things I still have to sell and then I'll just have to sit back and wait for the phone calls/bids. I'm so close to completing the decluttering in the house I almost can't believe it - after such a long time it seems unreal. 

I have a few errands to run later this morning and then it's in to school early so that I have time to talk to the head teacher about my decision to retire in July. Then after school I'll see the private pupils to say goodbye to them - it's going to be an emotional end to the day! There's only one child left to sort out now - the parents have been brilliant about it, which makes it easier all round.

The plans are coming together for my mini break in May but more about that another time. Hope you all have a good day.


  1. It's such a good feeling to have a declutter and get rid of things that are no longer wanted. I did it a couple of years ago but I'm still finding more things that I can let go. It's always a bonus if you can sell some things and swell the coffers a little too.

  2. Well done on all the decluttering!
