Firstly it is so sad to say goodbye to the gentleman known as Tel AKA Sir Terry Wogan, he has kept me company through many years and his dulcet tones have seen me through many a crisis and even more euphoric times. I am sure that all of his Old Gals and Geezers will be as sad as I am.
I have been steadily winnowing the chaff from the corn in my home. I know that I have said several times that I have taken a load to the Charity shop, but there is always more to go, at least I manage to keep finding more redundant items.
Then, back to home, I am saying goodbye to these few things.
My Magimix, it has done me proud for many years but I no longer use it very much. I no longer need to chop pounds of vegetables up for chutney, the amounts that I make now are small enough to use a knife. Goodbye.
I never did use the box of extras that came with it, they went to a good home years ago.
This little dutch oven has been gathering dust for longer than I care to think about. I can not remember where it came from, I do know that it was given to me and that I have never used it. Goodbye.
Likewise the bread bin, I like a wooden bin and one where the front rolls up and there is room on the top to stand marmite and peanut butter, close to hand.
These books, and a few more, have been read and enjoyed, my space is at a premium so they too have gone. Goodbye.
My car has also gone, it was reaching an age where it would start costing me money so had to go. Goodbye.
I had been looking around for something comfortable and reasonably powerful but not too thirsty. And of course at a good price.
Meet the new wheels, a nice chunky Zafira with a 2.0 diesel engine.
I expect her to last me a good while.
I have now got the cover on the next wreath and started to add the flowers, no photos yet, I will try to do better soon.
Now I am off to drink my tea and play catch up with blog reading.
