It's been a bank holiday weekend here in the UK so I took full opportunity of the extended weekend to get round to 'things-I-have-been-putting-off'. Like clearing up the spare room that became a bit of a dumping ground for 'stuff' ever since my separation. Talking of which that was over a year ago now so it was definitely high time I sorted it out.
Going through the boxes turned out to be quite a cathartic experience for me. I still couldn't bring myself to throw some things out. I couldn't quite part with some of my wedding memorabilia. The fact is that it is a piece of my past and I will keep it for now, lest I regret too great a purge. So I have stowed it in the attic to deal with another time. But many things did go and I have a huge pile of things to take to a car boot sale sometime soon. The cash will go towards my planned holiday in Vienna. Out with the old and in with the new. Seems apt for Spring somehow.
The photos are of the Clematis I have growing in my garden. It is a trailing plant and every year I cut it back a little to encourage new growth and it brings forth these lovely blue / purple flowers on the new growth. I am not one to get over sentimental but the analogy seemed apt for my clear out. I took these photos the other day. Hope you like them.
