Emmaus

Thanks to A for her tip off, and a colleague in work I have resolved the issue of the 6ft tall bookcase, and a lot of other furniture at the same time; it is being all collected on 1st June in the afternoon which will then mean I will be able to address all the issues of decorating as I will be able to see the walls without all the furniture being in the way.

Not only that, I have a feel-good-factor, as the Emmaus project (which has a local project nearby in Carlton, Beds) helps homeless people by providing employment as well as trading in furniture and bric-n-brac to provide much needed funds. This makes me feel better than having to hire a skip to throw it all away and in order to downsize I need to get rid of a lot of the clutter...

Still more to go as the contents of the cupboard still need to be gone through for things to keep and things to dispose of; lots of memories to go through and to let go of I think as I don't need tangible 'things' to keep the memories alive but I do need the space they occupy and I don't want to take them down to Cornwall only to gather dust.
