Subject: RE: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House
Been reading your posts for many months, I think I did pop in a thought a few months back, so as it is a new year here I am. Two years ago my mother died, she moved in with us 6 years ago and after settling her in a lovely room serrounded by her precious bits and bobs , everything else went into big boxes and into the loft. Putting the Christmas decorations away I looked at mum's boxes and thought the time is here to start going through everything. I started with a box full of discs that Father had transferred all the families home films and photos onto. Thousands of slide photos (which are in boxes in a blankčt box in one of my bedrooms) and years of family history. We spent a happy evening with my daughter and grandchildren yesterday watching them , how lovely to watch the children watch and listen to the voices of their great grandparents, Bunny had told me recently she couldnt remember Nanny's voice.
So one box out of the loft,and kept, about 12 to go!Lots of paintings and certificates in frames.Suitcases full of books that can go to the hospice bookshop after I have looked through them. Now I have joined this group I have no excuse, time to begin?
