Bits and pieces, clutter and stuff......as I'm unpacking I'm having second thoughts about lots of the things I have. Yes, they are pretty, true some have memories attached, but after living at the other house with so little for the last few weeks I'm appreciating more and more the beauty and calming effect of space and clear surfaces.
Even looking at this photo it appears 'wrong', does anyone out there know what I mean? What would you take away from the mantlepiece?
I think the only answer is to live with them for a while and then come the car boot season, gently and gradually whittle things down until I reach a happy state of mind with the quantity and quality of the 'things' we own. One thing is for sure next time we move (in around 3 years hopefully) I want to take even less with us.
One thing I have bought to use at this new house is a Remoska, a neat little one pot oven that can cook all sorts of things so much cheaper than continually putting on the main electricity eating oven. I see lots of experimenting coming up over the first few weeks at this house.
Oooh I'm going to miss my Aga!!
