Well its not knitting GG but its still damn scary to contemplate. The first is bookkeeping and tax, I do both of them myself and always leave the lot of it til the cut off date (3mths after the end of the financial year). I just finished that about a week ago but the panic leading up to it was enough to keep me up at night. Still, by the time I was done, like every year, I was saying to myself, "That wasnt so bad."
Today, and over the next few days I have to tackle another task requiring bravery, a huge toss out. Between 2002 and 2006 my parter and I had a number of relatives pass away, my mother, my stepfather, my sons father, my partners two grandmothers and his father. We were left a number of things in their passing, at one point we had 3 vaccume cleaners, 2 washing machines, 2 microwave, 3 sets of couches, 3 double beds, the list goes on, now we have to get rid of the other bits and pieces
To top it off my oldest son is now out on his own and my younger son has gone to live with his father fulltime.
So to cut a long story we have a lot of crap. You know how some houses have a room full of s#*t, well we have 3 rooms full of s#*t, drawers full of s#*t, cupboards full of s#*t and lived in rooms full of s#*t. Once a year our council has a hard rubbish removal day where they pick large items we cant fit in our bins. This year Im going through all of my rooms, giving what I can to charity and the rest to council. Our period of grief is over so I have run out of excuses. My motivator is one room will become a guest room for when my father visits and another room can be converted to a hobby room or home office, Im thinking about finding some work to do from home. So here I am sitting here chatting with you my dear finding yet another excuse to procratinate, but will soon be off my butt and takling this mammoth task one room at a time.
...........next week is the filing cabinet
