Blogging is great but there are times when it can be very difficult to convey things. Last night, for example, I would have loved to send you all the divine scent of a rhododendron that is blooming for the first time in my garden.
Anyway, this all brings me to my new approach to spring-cleaning or, I should say, advanced decluttering.
I was totally overwhelmed the other day by the extent of the mess and heaps of ‘stuff” that needed to be addressed ~ now there’s a nice word for it!
In the midst of it all, I came upon a huge box of cassette tapes that my father had compiled over a long winter. He wanted to have his absolute favourite music on tape so that he didn’t have to listen to music/songs that he wasn’t too keen on. It took him hours and hours to complete this task. But with his music in hand, he developed a new-found love for washing-up the dishes and he danced and sang his way through the gungiest saucepans, roasting tins … the lot, with more gusto than I could ever describe.
So, I dug out an old cassette player and got into the mood! Before I knew it, I was bobbing around the room, loading bag after bag with the most indescribable mess you’ve ever seen ~ even got courage to ‘deal’ with under and behind the bed!
Off now to enjoy another session!
