Today I have not managed to clear out 26 items. My day has been completely full. luckily yesterday I did manage to get ahead of myself so I have 11 things on my list today.
I have cleared out the cake decorating drawer. I often feel guilty for not making birthday cakes for my lovely children. I never seem to be able to find the time. However, my Mum bakes delicious, creative cakes and loves to do so. Therefore I have cleared out the drawer and thrown away the cake candles(used), the tubes of icing (stale), the cake trimmings and decorations (tatty) and the squashed cup cake cases. I have set aside the unused candles to give to Mum. I have symbolically thrown away the guilt for not being a cake-baking diva and accepted I can still be a good mother. Plus my Mum can bake the cakes and get the pleasure from doing so. The children don’t care where the cake comes from so long as they get one!
Plus the fact my cakes are not exactly the most scrumptious.
I have sold a daylight therapy lamp on ebay for £31.
I have taken some welly liners, a pastry brush and some teeny sun hats to the charity shop and taken a bag of wool to a lady who knits blankets for the special care baby unit at the Queen Elizabeth hospital in Kings Lynn.
Tomorrow I have to find 37 things to get rid of so I will probably spend most of the day in the loft. wish me luck!
