Fig & Cheese Pizza; & a battle.

Right now, I’m in the middle of a war.

On my side, I have boxes, scissors and packing tape.

On the other side – Clutter, dust, and over a year and a half of accumulated…. stuff.

So far, I seem to be winning the battle. Though that’s difficult to see right now, with boxes blotting out the light from the windows, and piles of “things” gathered in every corner, waiting to be sorted. Waiting to strike.

Moving house really can feel like an up-hill battle at times. Every single thing that you own is dragged out of the dark depths in which it’s hidden for who-knows how long, piled up in heaps and boxes to stare you in the face, making you ask yourself  – Why on earth did I keep That? Where did that come from? Do I need this?

In the face of all of this chaos, you become ruthless. Throwing away things that once, a long time ago, you had some reason to keep that now alludes you. It’s not only a battle with your house and your possessions, but a battle with yourself. As you try to cut down the never-ending mountain of boxes that need to be moved…

But it’s not all bad.

That isn’t what happened here.

Sudden inspiration..
