So long, and thanks for all the fish.

Standard

Once again, the time has come to talk of shoes and ships and sealing wax.. Of cabbages and kings… And why the sea is boiling hot and whether pigs have wings.

Or, you know. What have I gotten rid of recently?

First up, a hat/scarf/glove combo that my grandmother sent to my partner for Xmas this year. Lovely sentiment. Not needed. Went to  charity shop.

Along with that went a necklace/earring combo and a bracelet, also from my grandmother, also from Xmas, also went to a charity shop.

The next couple of gems included a pair of fluffy and sparkly pink socks. These were also Xmas gifts, but this time from my dad. Again, a lovely idea. I do love me some socks. However, I have perfectly serviceable houseshoes so these bad boys went to the charity shop.

Also in the bag with them? A selection of travel books, map books, and pocket dictionaries. I love to travel, but won’t be repeating the trips that I have already taken. Also, these books go out of date pretty quickly so there is no use in holding on to them. Let them find a new home through the wonder of charity shopping.

To wrap things up, I have a bunch of stationary supplies. I had several sheets of stickers and a pack of card plus envelopes that I would never get around to using. So I stuck a sticker to each card, put into an envelope, and left them in the carry baskets of all the bikes that I passed on the way home yesterday. I hope the confusion makes at least one person smile. This might be my favourite disposal technique so far.

Finally, I went through the medicine drawer in my bathroom and chucked out everything that had expired, that I hadn’t used in ages, or that I had any doubts over. These just went in the bin cause I wasn’t in a mood to empty them out and recycle the packages.
