Where to Start

Today I: Figured out a plan and went wandering at Bombo

This mess is doing my head in...

But, rather than focus on moving each ever-increasing pile from one spot to another, I realised that I've got time on my side.   Unpacking means I have to handle and think-about pretty much everything I own, so I've decided to go all Marie Kondo on my stuff.  I mean what better opportunity...

The KonMar method of organising is at its most basic to keep only the things which spark joy.  I'm good at dragging a lot of junk around with me (physically and emotionally) most of which I just keep because I've had it so long I don't really see it any more.  But there's a lot I can let go, and now is the perfect time to do it.

Rather than doing the KonMar thing and sort and purge one object type at a time (i.e. clothes, books etc), I'm going one box at a time.  Thinking over each thing as I unwrap it, and deciding whether to keep it or not.  I've already got a huge pile to be donated, and as the drive is filled with an ever-present skip, I'm filling it up with junk no one is going to want... broken sieve anyone??

So the unpacking stress and overwhelm has abated, and I'm making headway.

Miss 11 has been down for the weekend, and we want wandering to Bombo headland, where there is a Dog-Off-Leash area (and another on Bombo beach).  Result = one happy snoozing dog, well impressed child and exercised mum...

We have also been perfecting our selfie game...
