I can now open a drawer at the bottom of my wardrobe, so that's the next place that needs going through. Meanwhile, I have thrown out a scarf from it, and old bag embroidered in Afghan style. I noticed I was relieved that it had a rip in it, as that meant (to me) that I could throw it out. Strange thinking really! That I need things to be wrecked before I feel OK about letting go of them!
I have also cleared a space on top of my old desk, so my wooden letter rack (moved from my bookcase and emptied of old papers) can go there instead - a useful little in-tray. It's nice to be able to use good quality things when you do actually need them.
What I am grateful for today: 365 Less Things for the 'Grateful' idea; and my ceramics class, where I decorated a plate today. Good company, absorbing activity.
