There is no real theme to this post – hence the title.
A couple of years ago I wrote this post about the highs and lows of social media. One of the wonders of it is the ability to easily connect with family and friends. Today I have spent some time setting up a group for my cousins and other extended family. This will allow us to keep in touch across vast distances and generations. The catalyst was a seed of an idea to organise a get-together on the centenary of our grandfather’s arrival at Gallipoli. He was not with the first landing on April 25th 1915 but it was significant for our family as a sequence of events that followed this led to him spending time in England where he met his future wife (our grandmother). I already have feedback from far and wide which simply would not have been possible without Facebook.
As I was taught at school – “new thought, new paragraph”………
The decluttering continues – I have a small bag of a few more things that will be leaving the sewing room. I generally keep a plastic supermarket bag on the bag of the door in the sewing room and add anything that I find and then drop it off to the op shop when the bag is full. I also have 2 small cartons of books which we sorted from the bookshelves last month. They have been sitting on the floor next to the bookcases waiting for me to get organised and find a new home for them. I have listed them on a couple of local buy/swap/sell sites as well as Freecycle but if I don’t get a taker by the end of the weekend I think they will be going to the op shop as well. It is a difficult task to balance the desire to have things gone and not hanging around, against finding the perfect home for them. How do you manage this conundrum when decluttering?
I have also set up a ‘Decluttering’ tab at the top of my blog. Check it out if you are interested.
Finally, I just wanted to share these couple of photos with you today. In my next life, I think I will be a dog………….
The weather is not looking fabulous here – in fact it is pouring with rain and blowing a gale so I am not sure what the weekend will bring. I hope you have a fabulous weekend wherever you are.
