'tis pity she is a hoarder
These are the (mostly) empty notebooks and diaries that I have collected over the last few years. I have a problem. It's not serious enough to get me on the telly but, dearie me, I need to do something. In my defence I haven't bought ALL of these books. There are gifts in there and also books that needed a home. This, however, is the tip of an exceedingly large iceberg. There are collections of yarn, fabric, paper, stationery (do I count books?) around our house and they have all been gathered by me. There is no-one else to blame.
I could say I'm going to have yet another sort out, another clear out, another tidy up. That's not going to happen - certainly not before next summer but I have made a small start, clearing out my inbox and unsubscribing to the daily barrage of emails from online retailers, grocers and insurance salespeople. I've spent a very satisfying half an hour deleting myself from their communication lists.
I don't want their incessant cries of 'buy me, buy me' popping up before my very eyes. I just don't have the bandwidth. I am going to strip my inbox of all un-necessary communication - especially the ones from Paperchase.
