Sorting Out…


I have been sorting the house out for a while now. I supposed it started with gathering up all the possessions belonging to shortly-to-be-ex-husband. This made more room in the house, but was spectacularly painful. The whole process of wondering where I am in my life has been mirrored in my having a clear-out in the house. Mostly I have stored things in a more logical and ergonomic manner, but sometimes I have moved things around a few times before I have settled on the new ‘place’ for things. This is also similar to where my head has been over the last few months. Hopefully my head will get there in the end too.

The charity shop has done well. It is strangely satisfying to see a pile of stuff moved out of the house. There is something cleansing about making things simpler. I hope I will stop buying Wonder Serums or Creams that promise the Earth, and make no difference, and confuse me because I do not know where they are supposed to fit in my Skincare Regime. Not least because I can no longer afford them, but also did not need them… I have also given myself permission to give up on a couple of things. I am never going to get on with crystal rock deodorant. I have used most of it, I am allowed to throw the other bit away!  I realise my tendency to keep on flogging a dead horse of a relationship is echoed in my possessions. Sometimes you just have to let stuff go…
