This is such a dull post.
I have 3 kids.
Yes, I know, no news there.
All back to school now
All in new shoes, with new trainers /football boots in bags
Hence a pile of shoe boxes.
Shoe boxes are useful things, very useful things. I have all sorts of things in shoe boxes, I used to be a primary teacher and so shoe boxes have always been much prized .
I was that sort of student that cover them in brown paper with a pretty lid and made my shelves look pretty.
Wishy washy whimsical reminiscence
It's was a teacher training college...we were all a bit like that!
Now back to the present day and for nearly 2 weeks now there has been a pile of shoe boxes by the door in the kitchen.
You see, shoe boxes are useful. Particularly Clarks. Nice and strong.
But every year I gain at least 3 shoe boxes and I have plenty of stuff in shoe boxes.
I just don't need any shoeboxes, the kids have enough but I can't throw them out
They are useful.
Do I hold onto them just in case?
That's it. This is the year of ENOUGH. I can let myself get rid of them
It's ridiculous but this pile of shoe boxes stops me from doing other things. I have to deal with the shoe boxes first. If I get rid of them I may need them. If I store them, will I ever use them?
It's nothing to do with the shoes boxes really. You could easily replace the word shoes boxes for magazines or all manor of things
Surely everyone has a pile of shoe boxes..
Just me then.
Wish me luck, I am off to deal with them now. I can let them go.
And then I will deal with last years.
That isn't a joke.
