A Miss is worth 10 Miles!
Today we disposed of a casual chair, one which was re-upholstered about ten years ago in the most beautiful cream fabric. I like to keep my possessions in immaculate condition so for ten years I have been yelling at my kids to keep their feet off of it. Ten years! Anyway, so today it has found a new home, and I have proudly handed it over in impeccable condition. That beautiful chair has caused innumerable arguments in my home – a seemingly benign and innocent piece of furniture in my family lounge. And I still felt sad to get rid of it.
A few months ago, I was relieved of my Fortuner. I have never considered myself to be a control-freak but geez was I angry that some dude decided to relieve me of it before I had decided to minimalise it myself. Turns out we can function perfectly well with one vehicle – hmmm, I would never have thought it possible. And come the middle of the month when the repayment was to come off, I was suddenly elated. Bipolar much? ……
I have always maintained that avoidance is bigger than inclusion.
No thank you, not for me!
