Thursday 1st December
The kitchen is a mess! I'd just finished emptying the three wall cupboards when H arrived ... early! At the time I was okay about leaving it as I have to move some of the shelves before I can put things in their new places but this morning I am thinking it was not such a good idea ... hindsight is a wonderful, although to be honest it was obvious at the time that leaving it was not such a good idea! So sorting out that mess is my first job today.
H wants the old dinner service, but then forgot to take it with her so that's still here for now, but at least it's sort of dealt with. Next time I see her I'll put it in her car straight away! We had a belated birthday meal, a Chinese takeaway, and then planned some things for next year so my 2023 diary pages are starting to fill up.
Today I'm hoping to meet with J for a birthday lunch. It all depends on whether she can take a break from work but if it doesn't work out we'll meet next week instead. I'm also still trying to load my photos for my monthly photo challenge post so hopefully that will get that published today (I published the WPSH list yesterday in case you missed it!), and I have a box of items to sent away for valuation. It won't amount to much money but the company is offering an extra £20 in addition to the valuation price as an incentive so I may as well see what they offer. Whatever I get will go into my camera fund. There isn't really much left to sell but I was able to find a few things when I did a quick trawl through the house. I've also decided to sell off the rest of my cardmaking stuff which hopefully will sell well at this time of year. I can't see that I will use it again so I may as well add the money I get for it towards my camera fund.
I can open the first door on my Advent calendar today. I've chosen a puzzles one so I'll show you what I get tomorrow.
