I've been throwing things out. I've thrown lots and lots and lots of things out. The house is better for it, though I feel I have barely made a dent sometimes, it is definitely better. The more I throw out, the sooner the house will be in a fit state.
Except of course when I throw out bear's pumps that he will need tomorrow for games at school.
I had had some of his old pumps in the pile and got rid previously but I think I threw the current lot out while I was trying to be efficient over Christmas. I have to get some more!
Matalan didn't have any, neither did Asda or M&S when we called in on the way back from visiting father. I am going to send all his other kit in, keep everything crossed that they don't need their pumps tomorrow and see what I can find.
Of course there is the matter of size. Bear has been a junior size 13 for a while. I have no idea how much longer his feet will stay there though so I am going for the size 1 and hope that they won't be too big. With pumps I think bigger is better.
I have just had a quick look on Matalan click and collect and there are none there. It is the wrong time of year for it. Under the circumstances I think I will have a look at my friend ebay and hope that there is someone who will do express delivery.
This is not stopping me throwing things out!
