I'm also trying to clear out the cellar, but I can see that it'll be a job that'll take several tries. Unbelievable, the junk that's accumulated there in the last 7 or 8 years! I've made a start by throwing out all my old video tapes -- even though I still own a VCR, I never use it anymore, and I'm sure tapes must deteriorate over time, especially if they've been kept in a cobwebby cellar for several years.
Work and Jobsworth have been getting to me again lately, disturbing my dreams at night, and so I've decided to take a day off every week for the rest of the year, or I may end up back in the same dark place I was in a year ago. I know I should find something else somewhere else really, but I'm still holding out for redundancy. It's difficult though, when all the colleagues you've worked and formed friendships with for years and years get made redundant, but you yourself keep being passed over.
ETA: failed to find my sister a nice birthday present, so a card will have to do. Saw a gorgeous pair of boots, but failed to bring them home with me for some reason. Now I'm downloading Paint Shop Pro, so I can try and fail miserably at making icons later. Meh.
