Today was surprising. Very surprising! Perhaps you know that Mara owns a few Christmas films. And by a few I mean nearly 300!! I know, right! Way too many. But she loves them and they are on show and today...
She packed more than half of them away, ready to go to a charity shop! Not only did she do that with dvd's, she also went through her bookcase and removed a fair amount of books to be donated as well! And she didn't stop there. Yarn that was unused since the beginning of the century and lots and lots of knitting needles. A few lights and many other things found there way into large bin bags to be donated.
|To go to the loft, including the two large bags of wool.|
Not only that, she put the remaining yarn in a big plastic box and then started filling smaller plastic boxes with a lot of books that she is NOT getting rid of (mainly maps and touristy books), because, in her words, she and Gera will need some books to fill the library they are planning to have in the big house they want!

To be donated
Of course that wasn't the end of it. Because, I will be honest here: Mara is not known to be the tidiest of persons. But she and Gera put the donate-bags in the car and the small plastic boxes in the hallway, ready to be taken up to the loft tomorrow. It's not a hundred percent tidy yet, but it's not bad for Mara and Gera!
|Yep, I am sitting on the bag with dvd's. |
All the other bags will be donated as well.
Tomorrow we will take everything to the loft and then we will drive past the charity shop (Salvation Army) and drop everything off. After that? Mara hasn't told me yet, but she says it's going to be nice. As long as the weather is nice...
