What is it about throwing stuff away that...

...makes you feel quite liberated?
I did a substantial tidy up today throwing away lots of old horsey magazines (which I seem to produce in mountains throughout the year) and other bits and bobs that I really don't and won't be using ever again.
It was also my first day back at work and typically I got soaked to the bone teaching in a pouring rain from 11am till evening. It rained without a single pause.
Really bad news from First Great Western trains - they are changing their peak and off-peak hours and Transport For London is raising fares from January 2010. Very, very bad news for me.
Looks like I will be forced into finally getting a car...! Something also tells me I will have to work even more to be able to pay all those expenses back. A bit of a worry.

My mission today is to go to sleep at a reasonable hour as I am becoming increasingly nocturnal. On one hand it gets a lot of things done but I am not sure if it's any good for my mood and energy levels during a day.

A very Happy Holidays to you! Nasty bit of snow you had out there, we, too were buried in a blizzard over the day itself. Glad you had a lovely trip, but happy to have you back! How DO you find the stength of purpose to actually heave-ho horsey mags? Mine gather and gather. I tell myself I will use them to let the wee people use them for projects...honorable intentions but I have yet to put it in place! Canada

I came by your blog by a convoluted route, but am very interested because I a: live in England, b: have horses, and c: learned to ride at Wimbledon Village Stables many years ago. Drop by my blog some time, you'll be very welcome.

Helooooo Canada :)
It's back to relentless rain now here on the island! It's been another non-stop rain day today. Funny, after several hours you just stop noticing it and the constant soaked through feeling becomes normal.

As to the mags and strength - well...*whispers*: I still have a few mountain ranges safely stored :) My dreamy idea is to keep all the materials so when I have my own little yard I will set up a little cafe with horsey stuff library for others to make use of my hamster like habit ;))

All the very best for you in the 2010! Hope you're not too snowed down for too long :)x
