Belinda's Back to Basics Challenge Update



Sowing seed or Planting


Not much gardening happening, its been cold, wet and windy. Its too dangerous gardening here in high winds as branches can and do come crashing down. We have a number down which need clearing up.

Planning for The Future

We've been to more university open days and my daughter is seriously considering changing her top preference for next year.

Working for the Future

The paperwork continues for the new home we have purchased. So far everything is looking good but I'll be glad when its all finalized.

The decluttering has started even if in a minor way. We have given away some old computer equipment to someone who wants it. Our old video recorder is starting to fail so we've been sorting through the old video tapes to see what should be kept and what thrown out. Its a slow process but I would rather slowly go through things than have to have a major clean out before we move. Our new home is less than half the size of this one so lots of stuff has to go.
