Declutter in summer?

Just got rid of twenty books to the local charity shop.

Relocating ‘stuff’ is hard work in the Summer. Especially since its forecast 29 to 30°C over the next couple of days. We found a damp patch so now there a tray of absorbent crystals under this space, I think it’s just condensation because it was stuffed with books!

That’s the main problem, books, more than one thousand when I gave up counting. The trouble is that especially with hubby, every book has to be checked to see if he still wants it, there is a lot of emotional attachment, a lot of connections and memories. I’m proud of him. So this spring cleaning in the summer is hard and tedious work, but it needs doing.

Oops! When you can’t get replacement, the last thing you want to do is break your bathroom sink. I was too vigorous with the feather (nylon actually) duster. I swiped at a cobweb and knocked a heavy glass bottle off the bathroom cabinet and into the sink!

Result, big star shaped crack! Grr. So a bit of spring cleaning leads to disaster…..
