Clearing out a drawer..

Apologies if you have read this drivel before but I found this curious list on my phone from December 2017!
I must have decided to tidy out one of 'those' drawers in the sideboard. We all have them. The shove it in and deal with it another time drawer.
This is what was in the drawer on this day. It's kinda like one of those time capsules!

The absolutely awful thing about finding this list is that Im one hundred percent positive that these items are STILL IN THERE plus a load more stuff rammed on top! That Maria Kondo woman would spontaneously combust if she saw it! 

Lots of love for now,

  1. I have many drawers like that which I just dare not I really should to make room for even more crap.
    Hope you and the family are OK.
    I miss your posts.

  2. LOL - I reckon most people who work in primary education are also hoarders. It seems to be a characteristic of the type. :-)


Many thanks for taking the time to read my words and respond with your own thoughts. I always try to reply so make sure you pop back to see!
