4 weighing scales, 27 flower vases, 6 maybe 7 children's car seats, 5 Hi-Fis but only 9 speakers (?), 40+ mugs (i.e. us!), plus books and books and books and books (the last ones stay...I hate getting rid of books.) etcetera, etcetera, etcetera........ Five "past" lives into one house won't go.... There's my husband's past life's possessions before he met up with me, there's my past life's impedimenta "stuff/belongings" before I met up with him, our life together in Egypt and then our life together here when all our other "stuff" was in boxes plus now we have our current life in this latest house in this "on the Wall" location.
We moved into this medium sized house in January. We had a small house in a town ten minutes away from here which we are still trying to sort out. (We looked at plenty of large sized houses for two to three years but did not have a large sized wallet to pay for one. There was me thinking that only houses south of, well, "South" had big price tags on them! Sigh.) Nevertheless we are very happy here. After travelling all over the place I finally feel that I am at home.
But to continue....My husband's parents used to dabble a bit in the antique trade....so we have boxes of stuff from them. We recently acquired things from my Grandfather who is now living with my parents. Need I say more? So now we are trying to cut down on "Stuff". This is not going to be easy considering how much I hate packing. What to choose? What to choose? What to choose? (Did I hear someone mutter "Brick" and "Wall"?)......I fancy we could be here for some time..............Tea anyone?
