I helped my friend's parents clear out her house recently. I had thought her to be quite a minimalist but there was still a lot of stuff for her bereaved family to clean up and I am determined not to be in the same position! Also I have recently read The Gentle Art of Swedish Death Cleaning and thought I could benefit from learning a lesson or two from that! Over the last three years with retirement in mind I have been practicing living on less (the amount of the national pension ) and now with just over 17 months to go till actual retirement it seems like a good time to start to learn to live with less.

Fruits of her labours
This morning I took the DBEM and the collection of small knitted garments to a local Hospice Charity shop where she was warmly welcomed. "Oh thank goodness you're back. We've had people asking where the knitteds were this year" and all afternoon the DBEM has been warmed by the kind words of the shop manager and her friendly assistant.
