I've been working on the walk in cupboard. I am donating the pans father brought. I looked at them and thought things like, 'what a useful looking pan, what a good size.' and then I thought, I barely use all of my pan set anyway. I may have a vision of an old fashioned range with pots bubbling gently but realistically if I am cooking I am just as likely to use the microwave to cook fresh veggies and rice and the slow cooker, halogen and remoska do far more than our hob.
I spent some time thinking. I have decided to keep the cleaning stuff, diy stuff, freezer, material and sewing supplies and any bulk buying. I am cutting down on the bulk buying, just a few bits now and again. I am less likely to bulk buy the huge boxes of Ariel as the Aldi is so well recommended and I can just buy at a normal size. I am getting a grip on the whole business of stockpiling loo rolls so there is less and less stashed. As I have had and am having a a clear out of the cupboards there is more space to put the tins and pulses, and I am not planning on buying 72 tins of soup again any time soon (I've nearly used all those up and they are still in code).
I also got off a stop earlier after getting the bus into town and back and had an extra little walk. I am feeling quite good about that. I have been asked to go into the hospital to speak to the consultant about father on Monday.
