Over the last year we have been having a good clear-out – trying to make some space and reduce the clutter. I’ve experienced the pleasures and horrors of ebay, braved the throng of a regional car boot and discovered the value of scrap metal. I’d have expected to see some “empty space” for all this hard work by now, but not yet. Perhaps we’ve managed to fill those spaces with new things purchased from the profits of our sales! The most recent clear-out session uncovered a little brown trunk housing my childhood toys – probably the first of my special boxes! The little toys will probably be rehoused and the box repainted for filling with newly purchased art materials….mmm… net space gain, zero!
