I don't know why the urge to get rid of stuff is so strong, but I've been thinking for a while that I have to pass on a lot of my books and also to relieve the bookcase of its burden - so I did a massive clean out and sent a few hundred books to Shelter charity. I was feeling that my possessions were possessing me!
All the books which were on my art room floor have been shifted to their new home and I can actually find what I need!! It's like a breath of freshn air. My work table is next. There's still a bit of weeding out to be taken care of but the worst part is over hooray!¬!!
