It would be hard to even have a tiny little presence on the blogosphere and not be aware of the plethora of themed blog posting programmes around. The most common seems to be the A to Z. The idea is that you blog each day about a subject (about which presumably you know a little) beginning with A and then B and then C and so on.
For the most part I’m not a great fan of these because they have a terrible tendency to generate blogs about obscure and relatively uninteresting topics in which neither the writer nor the reader have a great interest.
However, it occurred to me that our decluttering journey has plateaued a little. We have been through every room and every outbuilding. To be honest, I think we need to go through them all again, and no doubt we will in a couple of months. But we need a challenge to keep us on board.
Having said that we have gone from this,
And that doesn’t even include the now empty and immaculate outbuildings 🙂
I hate to follow a trend, I like to be contrary. So I thought I would take the A to Z challenge and turn it on it’s head. I aim to declutter at least one item a day (and hopefully considerably more) starting with an item beginning with Z and 26 days later an item beginning with A. I don’t know if I even own anything that begins with Z, but I will have to find it and let it go.
Fear not, gentle reader. I will not post every day for the next 26 days on my progress. I will give you an update every now and then, and FB friends will be subjected to a daily post. In the meantime I have just packed up a van in the pouring rain to take stuff to the auctioneer. By the time the van was full the rain stopped and my lunch was yet another burnt offering to the Aga god. Only we about one more van load to go and then we are really down to the small fry.
Now to find something beginning with Z.
