A little light...

packing.
As I pack the Christmas decorations away I get to thinking, am I maybe tempting fate if I begin an idle odds and sods sort of packing in readiness for the move?  Although I pretend to be disorganised I am anything but.  I like to get ahead of the game... ‘Be prepared!’  
Never a member of the Boy Scouts, I would dearly have loved to be, if only for the nearness of...
well not to put too fine a point on it... boys.
I did go to the Brownies once, I hated it.  My cousin showed me recently a picture of me sat crossed legged at the front of a group photo of the Wilmington Brownies.  With arms crossed and a ferocious look on my face, the picture perfectly captured my thoughts on such a silly idea.  And brown?  I ask you, even at five I knew I would never don such an awful colour.
Where was I?

Should I? Shan’t I?
Pack!
If I did, the call might come that our buyers are having second Brexit shaped thoughts and have pulled out.  Then we are back on the market and the thought of all the domestic goddess sort of stuff  like vacuuming in corners, behind the bed, dusting, worst still polishing, is back. That fills me with the heebeegeebees more than
 the blooming Brownies ever did!

  1. Yes! Do it! I started packing and ‘sifting’ six months before the house even went on the market. I was grateful for it when we did start the process.

    1. I sort of already have, what with packing the Christmas decorations away. Climbing into the loft quite gets me in the removal zone! I feel like I have o.d’d on the Pickford pills.

  3. You could kid yourself on that you're just decluttering? You could just actually declutter? Or, you could just leave things as they are - it will make not much difference I don't think, in my experience (of which I have none) things get done no matter how prepared we are or not. x

    1. ‘Kid myself?’ That has been my M.O. for most of my life! Last time, the man said we’ve got plenty of time, we don’t need to get started this early...WRONG! Although I do grudgingly agree it always gets done...

I’ll be blowed if...

I am going to let some bugs, flour and water get the better of me! This is the state of play this morning. If you peer close enough...
