Now the house is full of gifts and other seasonal stuff it just feels... full. This evening we went into Dan's dressing room and sorted out the bookshelves, resulting in around 100 books seeing their way out of the door. Along with them a suitcase (barely used) and rucksack (very used) will be on their way tomorrow.
I made a start on my wardrobe and filled a small carrier bag with some costume jewellery and accessories that I never wear. Some old make up went into the bin.
We now have an empty bookcase and a full car!
