A Productive Day

Recently being out of work has been really getting me down and I have been spending most of my time sleeping or doing nothing. So I decided at the begining of the week that I needed to focus on using all my free time to better effect. I now have a list of jobs around the house that I want / would like to get done - the main one being to have a major clearout of all my stuff. I have decided that it is time to get rid of some of my stash, I have far far more stuff than I could ever hope to use in this lifetime. So it would be much better to get rid of some of it and the concentrate on using what remains (and eventually buy some more!!).
So this morning I got everything out of all the cupboards and have piled everything up according to type. I have already got rid of several bag fulls of stuff (I can not believe some of the total rubbish that I had put away in cupboards) and had a trip to the local charity shop to donate a whole load of stuff. Tomorrow I will start going through my stashes and decide what to keep and what to get rid of. I have already found several nearly finished projects which I had totally forgotten about.
Then in the afternoon since it was not raining for the first time in over a week I walked down to my allotment to look at how the weeds were growing. I managed to return home with broad beans, cabbage, potatoes and courgettes which means I have enough veggies for the rest of the week. I do love picking and eating my own veggies. Just as I got to the final corner before home it started pouring down with rain so I had to run the last few last yards.

Awww Allie it's a shame that you are feeling down. Any plans in the offing for a new job? Well done to you for 'de-cluttering'. I did it with some old paperwork a few days ago and found it very carthartic!
