The first day of December, the first day of summer, the first day of the last month of this strange year. Who would have thought twelve months ago that 2020 was going to turn out the way it did.
I have been spring cleaning – a bit late in the season but better late than not at all. I have only been doing my bedroom (that’s enough!) and it seems to be taking ages.
All the furniture got moved around into their summer settings – the best place for my bed is under one of the windows but in the winter too much cold came through the glass so I moved the bed. It is now back beneath the window. Of course, when the bed is moved all the drawers need moving as well so that everything can fit.
|Yay - it's summer!|
I don’t mind having a winter and summer setting for my furniture. I like to make seasonal changes in the décor – they may not be big things but they just add a little something and help one stay in touch with the rhythm of nature.
Every drawer has been gone through and I have discarded about half of my clothes. Most were either worn out or no longer fitted nicely, but some were perfectly good only I didn’t like them. I finally came to the decision that I never wore them because I disliked them, so what was the point in keeping them?
I am not a minimalist by any means but there is something very comfortable about not owning too many things. I can now see everything I have stored in my wardrobe, and I know all my clothes fit me and look good. And my bedroom is all clean, ready for the hot summer months ahead.
Stay happy 😊
