change of plans, one way or the other we are going to move (maybe (arg)), and the urge is still there.
But I wanted to wait until it was warm enough to open the place.
And now the weather is warm and the urge to spring clean is irresistible.
So I started small, with a little bag I've had since I was thirteen, that has pretty much always been home to earrings and bobby pins.
Before putting everything back in, I lined the bottom of the bag with fresh bobby pins, from a pack I bought here. And in locating the pack of US bobby pins, I started cleaning out the smallest of my two toiletries bags - hairbands, bobby pins, and cosmetics.
So there are now more things to go to the op shop (unused hairbands mostly), and I have made a mental note of the cosmetics that are to be binned when we leave - most of what I have is starting to smell funny or not go on right, and I'm not even sure some of the colours actually suit my complexion.
The reality is I don't actually wear much makeup, and I usually go without. Somedays I don't even wash my face in the morning. It will be nice to reduce my make up collection to what I actually use. I wish I could be as ruthless with my earring collection... One day...
The urge to spring clean has been satisfied, for now, but I'm sure that it won't be long before I clean out the hall cupboard, or the wardrobe in the spare room...
