First thing. We've just returned from listening to Rue Royale make some music for a polite, quiet crowd at the Yardbird again. I know, I know, I always go on about them... but they deserve it. They're good!
Second thing. I've hinted at the possibility of drastic stuff-reduction measures looming on the horizon, but so far we've done nothing more radical than a few small clear-outs of clothes and toys. To be honest, we don't have a huge amount of possessions; we're just feeling the need to reduce the amount of things we do have to the minimum. So... we're on Day 2 of our massive de-cluttering binge, with the help of a book entitled 30 Day Clutter Bootcamp. Take it from this speed-reader; I've given the entire book a quick once over and it's amazing! I am the type of person who loves to read instructions for everything. 30 Day Clutter Bootcamp gives me exactly what I want with minimal fuss and no complications. Each day has it's own specific set of items to focus on: music, books, photographs, etc. All clearing-out sessions are timed to avoid burnout, and there are many useful tips to employ along the way.
There was probably a third thing. But it's really late, and I've forgotten it. Tomorrow promises to be a very long day, as usual, and I need to stop all this thinking.
I'll leave you with some Rue Royale. Can't resist!
