The great clear-out continues. (and some yoga)

I need to up the stakes as far as the “Great Ongoing Clearout” is concerned. Last week we headed to my mum’s house and managed to take a load of books I had stored in her loft, to the PDSA charity shop. I need to have a thorough rake through stuff I’ve got in cupboards in our house and see what’s mine that can go.

I buy a new t-shirt that I like, fine, but I seriously need to get rid of some old ones otherwise I’ll be found dead one day under a landslide of clothes and books.

I’ve got a kindle ffs! But the problem I have is that when I hit the charity shop to drop stuff off, I inevitably browse the book shelves. That’s fatal to me.

I’m stufficating and I need to be brutal and just clear stuff out. Why am I hanging onto a 10 year old Saxon tour shirt that I never wear? It makes no sense.

Yoga last night was excellent. I really enjoyed it. Susan is a great teacher, and I really enjoy her vinyasa flow class. The previous class that I went to was an Iyengar class, and while I did feel the benefits, the stop-start nature of the class made it a little boring. You got into a nice headspace, and then *POP* stop there, next pose.
I know it’s a good system for correct alignment, and the fact that props are used make it accessible to people who may have limited range of movement, but (touch wood) at the moment, I’m getting far more from the flow class than I ever did from the Iyengar. It’s horses for courses, and what suits the individual. It’s all good.

Clutter

I was looking for something the other day and while rummaging through drawers, I realised that I have an absolute shit-load of t-shirts!  Most of them never see the light of day.  I’ve got some tour shirts that I never wear any more, I’ve got some from SF conventions, but the one I actually wear are all the same ones.  Day in, day out.

I think I need to grow a pair, loose whatever emotional attachment I have to those that are just lying in drawers, and never getting worn, and just get them bagged and off to the charity shop, (or in some cases stick them on eBay).  Either way, it’s all “stuff” and it needs to go.
