The objective today was to start with some de-Cluttering. If I am going to sell the house, besides the usual painting and gardening and generally making good, I need to sort out what I carry over into the next phase of my life and what needs a new home. Really, this should apply to my computer, my office, my house and my mind. Challenges all of them.
This morning, I was looking for a bed on the appropriate section of Gumtree, and I saw a Huon Pine Dressing table advertised – for only $170. I have a few Huon Pine pieces of furniture and am rather partial to it. They are all Edwardian, and all dust catchers, but distinctive pieces of Australian furniture. I didn’t need this dressing table but at that price I couldn’t resist it. In an antique shop it would probably sell for $500 more. I bought it.
This evening, I have also bought the bed for young Donald – just have to organise a trailer tomorrow to pick it up. So, at the end of the day, I have two additional pieces of furniture. So much for the de-cluttering. However, we are taking two King Single beds out of his room and I will probably sell those, so I guess that will be two pieces of furniture less.
