Thread Name: De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life - 2019
Subject: RE: De-clutter & Fitness: House, job, life - 2019
I have just signed up to the "What do you promise to do in 2019?" thread and that is, to massively de-clutter this house and double garage we've had for 32 years! Yes, it's that "don't leave it to your kids" thing, with us both being over 70, albeit both having had long surviving parents (all went to late 80s or first half of 90s, despite 3 out of 4 having been smokers!) Haven't been able to put either car in the garage for at least 15, if not 20, years, because of all the assorted bits of wood, stuff from our parents' houses, stuff that might possibly be mendable (NOT, but himself thinks it is!)
And heaven knows what's up in the loft! And "summerhouse" woth various unridden for years bikes, etc. And glasshouse, and shed.....
We are both retired so the job bit doesn't come into it, tho' the life bit does: "don't know how I ever had time to go to work" - then there's music (me), rugby, gardening (him), culture in a city renowned for it, minding the grandchildren (both) .......
