While it may’ve been my birthday eight-days ago, that Monday was also the day in which I decided to clear out and close the door on my first workshop for the final time. A previous weekend had seen the majority of my tools and kit tucked away in to self storage. But I’d left myself with a floor-covering off odds-and-sodds to gather or give-away. Somehow, prolonging the inevitable and procrastinating would make it feel like I wasn’t having to let go just yet…
Because of such of undesirable habits, I found myself with nowhere else to dump these items in such short notice and so, here they are, on the carpet of the one-bedroom flat within which I reside.
Here we are in 2014. With spring only a few months away, some people might be turning their attention to the annual tradition of spring cleaning… But does anyone ever actually do it? At this time or even at all?
I imagine it’s like a friend of mine said recently, with regards to people who set a date for beginning their diet… That date soon passes and they haven’t even begun to alter their daily food intake. How many of us set New Year’s resolutions that we fail to follow through with?
Setting dates for doing things we don’t particularly want to do is, in my opinion, another form of procrastination.
But moving house has prompted me to look at what I’m living with and to gradually put the non-essential items to one side. Within my first week in this flat, I came up with a box-full of recyclable items that I can live without. You can see those in the photo above.
