– found my old pen collection, and ruthlessly spent an hour deciding which ones to keep and which ones to ditch
– gone through my old collection of magazine cover CDs and DVDs, discerning which ones to throw away, which ones have some small software to save to my hard drive, and which ones to throw away
– gone into five sofa shops, to drool and dream over new corner sofas for my new London pad
– spent ages discerning which books, CDs, DVDs and electronics to get rid of
Thus, after about a week of packing, I have 13 boxes packed. And about 50 to go. Oh dear.
