Thank you for your patience whilst I was away. I hope I haven’t lost too many of you in my absence. Turkey was beautiful. Very hot but the exceptionally clear sea more than made up for that.
However, the thing I am most proud about is that I went away for two weeks with a small suitcase. Not quite small enough for hand luggage unless travelling first class with someone like BA, but pretty darn compact. Not only that but I could easily have done with less. By the time I dumped the empty suncream/shampoo bottles and my very elderly beach towel that had clearly seen better days I had quite a light suitcase for the return journey. Oh go me. That was a first!
Holiday purchases? A few. The practical were the Turkish beach towels.
Pure cotton, delicious colours, compact and double up as kikois or shawls. I challenge you to get five traditional beach towels into hand luggage!
Less practical but beautiful. This ring. I tend to wear chunky silver jewellery. Only a few pieces but this fits perfectly (and takes me to 34 items ….)
Now it’s back to work on the clear out. Unpacking is a great time to clear out because you have to find space for the things you are putting back. I did the shoe cupboard and my handbags yesterday afternoon. As I am on Project 333 I’m not using any of them at the moment but they are still there and will need a clear out. There are still more than I need but they have been pared down by about 40%. Bags and shoes were my downfall, much more than clothes. But more about that tomorrow.
It’s good to be back 🙂
