MIllie was thrilled when I discovered a forgotten stash of doggie treats at the back of the cupboard - and then totally devastated when I read the 'use-by' date and decided to throw them all away. She's no longer speaking to me.
I am taking my Goerge Foreman grill and my egg-poaching pan - oh yes and my three tier vegetable steaming pan - but all my other pans are staying behind for the next lucky tenant...you can just imagine the comments can't you? "OOOh look - a ten year old frying pan - how fantastic!"
I haven't even started on my clothes yet - but what a fantastic excuse to throw away all those holey (holy?) grey cotton knickers that have been cluttering up my undie drawer for ever (I can just hear my Mum saying "they'd make great dusters"...I think not!
It's very cathartic and a wonderful excuse for de-cluttering - let's all live a minimal lifestyle from now on!!!
It's going to take me forever to unpack it all at the other end - I just hope my new housemate (!) is patient!!!
