Different types of creating

Another quick mile today…

…because I had quite a few things on my to-do list today. Most of them took longer than expected and now there are quite a few things on my to-do list for tomorrow as well. Hopefully it will balance out throughout the week!

I’ve been preparing my submission for this month’s virtual poetry night group poem, which has required a bit more of an analogue approach than I’m used to. (Actually writing something out by hand and taking a photo of it? Yikes!) The group effort will go live tomorrow night, so I’ll post a link to it on Thursday.

In the meantime, I have a few more things to tick off my list before I can collapse with a videogame. Tomorrow I’m hoping for a slightly longer run and an equally productive day!

Summer hat
A sneak peak of my poem submission, without the poem bit, obviously. What could this old straw hat be representing?

Today’s earworm playlist:

Yasunori Mitsuda – ‘Where It All Began’
Duran Duran – ‘Union Of The Snake’
Mesh – ‘I Can’t Imagine How It Hurts’
Rihanna – ‘Russian Roulette’
New Radicals – ‘You Get What You Give’
T.Rex – ‘Metal Guru’

On with the cull

I spent today getting on with my wardrobe cull.  I got rid of a lot of dresses, underwear, scarves and hats, and a lot more shoes – I’ve now got the previous total down to 59 pairs.  That’s a pretty big drop, and it means my new shoe shelves will look really neat and uncluttered.

Well, at least until I replace all the thrown-out pairs with new ones!

No, I’m kidding.  Like with everything else in the house, I’ll be instituting a one-in one-out rule once my shelves are full, in order to avoid things getting back into the chaotic hoarding state that has made this house move so stressful.  Neither Geth nor I have ever been in the habit of throwing things away, but that has to change from now on, for my own sanity.

I’m quite looking forward to seeing what it’s like to live without mounds of stuff everywhere!
