Not really – just a desire to declutter which I hope to start this afternoon. Having taken on two new voluntary jobs I looked round my house and realised there wasn’t a spare inch to carry out the tasks. Also, if I died tomorrow it would be impossible for anyone to sort out the papers, books and files I left behind. The trouble is I have a fear of throwing away information.I should be happy that we can look anything up on the internet now, so I don’t need it in paper form, but throwing away old financial details and magazines feels like throwing away one’s past. One holiday I took loads of photos , only to find there was no film in the camera. Now it feels as if we never had that holiday.
Enough! I mustn’t put it off any longer.
