         Life’s Like That
Welcome to ‘Life’s Like That’, a column writing on different subjects every week, about life.
   with Yvonne Holt
  DID YOU KEEP YOUR RESOLUTIONS?
 Last year I made two promises to myself. The first one was to transform the spare bedroom into an acceptable comfortable office.
To anyone who puts objects out of sight, yet may need later and puts them away in the spare room, that is exactly what I had been doing for years.
I was determined to have it cleared.
My husband couldn’t see why I was making such a fuss, my son gave me a big smile saying: “When you’ve cleared the room let me know and I’ll come and help you.”
“You promise you will remove rubbish to the local Tip,” I replied.
I phoned our daughter asking when she had a spare hour to help me.
She gave me a full morning the following week, asking me to sort out files and boxes
I wanted to keep before she arrived.
Fair enough you may think, but I couldn’t
believe how many boxes we had, some didn’t even belong to me.
They were the property of our children who had gladly left them behind when they moved into their own place.
I made a decision there and then to give them the choice to reclaim their property, taking it with them or it was going to the tip.
Books, it’s amazing how one accumulates them. I do keep some of my favourite books, but I have thrown a lot away.
When I am reading a book if it doesn’t grip my attention within the first two chapters, I bin it.
We have books on various subjects, there are biographies, dictionaries for different subjects, war stories, and the National Geographic of which I have quite a few,
then several others.
I was surprised to find the ones I wanted
to keep filled a large box.
To make life easier I placed the box at the
end of the landing and carried the books to
it.
My daughter turned up with some large scissors and within half an hour she had sorted the old carpet out.
She worked fast and was depositing it into a large bin liner, which I already had in.
I showed her a box of her belongings and asked her to take them home. She didn’t
- ‘place them in your wardrobe’ being her reply.
My son came and loaded his car boot with a pile of unwanted ‘maybe’s’ then he had the nerve to say: “You have a lot of Junk here mum.”
“Yes, most of it’s yours,” I said. He
laughed.
Within two weeks, the decorator came
and he did an excellent job.
Then I asked my neighbour if they would
come in and help me move the desk out, for the man was coming the following day to lay the carpet.
We are fortunate in having nice neighbours.
Two weeks later our son arrived, telling me he had a surprise for me, it was two pine book cases. I was absolutely delighted.
I cleaned them, polished them and spent the next hour sorting out my books with the greatest of pleasure.
I get a lot of pleasure out of my new look office.
