Good morning, everyone. How did yesterday go for you? It was beautifully sunny here although not that warm really, and I managed to get quite a lot done.
I took Diane's advice (thanks, Diane) and used my timer when I sorted out some of the books.
I moved some of the ones I want to keep to the new bookshelves.
I put some in the paper recycling as they were just not in a fit state to be handed on.
And quite a lot are stacked up beside the new bookshelves. That's because they are either for the charity shop or, perhaps, will stay there until the Friends of the school group start collecting for the summer fair.
There are more very battered paperbacks to be chucked, but the recycling sack is heavy enough already. They are collecting today so I can get on tomorrow and/or over the weekend.
Unfortunately, the road is closed today while they resurface. It was supposed to me yesterday but I think the heavy rain on Tuesday delayed things. I'm just crossing my fingers that the recycling lorries will be allowed down otherwise it will be a fortnight before the collect the paper (or I will need to go to the dump).
I then cleared some stuff from my bedroom too. I think sorting Mum's things has made me realise quite how much unnecessary stuff I have - much worse than Mum's which wasn't that bad really, not as bad as mine anyway.
I also tried using my sourdough starter but, sadly, I couldn't even get a bubbly 'sponge from it'. I reckon it's just not Meant To Be, so I will stop trying. The rest of the starter (presumably dead) has gone down the plug hole and I will stick with my ordinary bread. I'm glad I tried though.
I need to go shopping this morning, just for a few bits and bobs so it will give me a nice walk to Morrisons and back, after which I intend to carry on with the junk in my bedroom.
And then, this evening, it is SW group and my weigh in. I was a bit naughty with food over the weekend but, on the other hand, I was running up and down stairs all day which is reckoned to be great exercise so fingers crossed I've lost something. I'll be happy with just a little bit.
Have a super day, whatever you have in the diary.
