This has been a week of future plans, so I have been caking up some skeins of yarn for knitting and weaving projects. It has also been dominated by the start of the 91 day decluttering challenge.
I have knit some additional sections of my ADVENTuresome shawl. The colours this week have been Batmobile, Star Wars, Scalextrics, Teddy Ruxpin and I have just started Rubix Cube (I think).
Well not much crafting really but the decluttering is going well, although it is exhausting making so many decisions. With us being in lockdown the charity shops are shut and so the spare room is piling up with bags of things.
I have completed my wardrobe and drawers of the master bedroom, our bathroom, our guest room wardrobe and the drawers of my hats, scarves and gloves. I’ve also done books that were in another room wardrobe on the top shelf. A two day task was one of our cupboards on the landing which is home to suitcases of clothes, overflow from the bathroom, make up (which I haven’t worn for years), suntan lotions, heated rollers 😂 and other random things I found in there. Of the 4 suitcases in there only one still has clothes in and that’s summer holiday abroad clothes…the sort of clothes we wouldn’t need in a Scottish summer, swim suits, beach wraps, etc.
My husband’s wardrobe and drawers need a good clear out but he gets stressed and angry if I start trying to get rid of his things. There were 2 tubes of eczema cream that were prescribed to him 13 years ago and were expired 10 years ago and we had to negotiate them going as he wanted to keep them ‘just in case’. I’ve just avoided his other stuff as it’s too stressful even trying to discuss it.
