Spring cleaning

Over the past few days I've had a bit of a spring clean.

It began last weekend at the start of the new financial year when I looked at the row of old cereal boxes I keep my accounts in and decided I didn't need bills and bank statements that were 12 years old.

It felt strange to watch my bygone life go into the shredder but psychologically it is good to get rid of stuff that is no longer needed to make room for new things.

Not that the space on my shelf stayed vacant for long.

I logged onto Freecycle, meaning to find a new home for some DVDs, and ended up accepting another Freecycler's offer of the entire partwork series Learn & Understand Astrology and Divination, published by Hachette a few years ago.

I'm not sure how well written the material is, but I will enjoy delving into it and will hopefully write a review of the publication in A Bad Witches Blog in the future.

As for all that paper I shredded, I have put some of it into my compost bin. Hopefully, in years to come, I will see flowers growing from the remains of all those old final reminders.
