    @Saskia and @Freema I am trying to declutter and downsize too. It’s very hard to decide what is useful, or important and what is just a nice memory or simply familiar. My most difficult bit has been sorting family photos. I’m the only one left now ( apart from my children and grandchildren) so I’ve ended up with everybody’s everything. Trying to make 1 keepsake album out of thousands of photos is just giving me headaches.

    It was my dad’s name too, although the pup isn’t named after him particularly. More that the eyebrows reminded me of Dennis Healy I think (but our Dennis is obviously an awful lot cuter and less irritating)

    Sounds like a perfect day so far and noise/peace or not the children and grandchildren are both a blessing and living reminder of how well you both chose all those years ago.

    I had to do that about 7 years ago -- downsizing from my deceased parents' house before I moved into a small apartment. I bought a small photo album and put in some of the photos from their bigger albums, but I could not bear to downsize their wedding-honeymoon album so I still have that. I also have my two studio baby pics that were hung on their living room wall with my sister's -- too big to put in an album and I have no idea what to do with them. They have been stuck in a big plastic storage box for 7 years now, in the linen closet, but if I actually do move in a few months I won't want to take them with me. Enough is enough -- but where do I draw the line between enough and too much?

    I had never heard of Windrush Day before, so I Googled it, and found a very interesting and informative article.

    We are in a similar situation @DJC3 in many ways (more urgent since Thursday). Not sure photos are a big issue for me, I never really liked them, but possessions and memorabilia are (medals and commendations are precious). Hardest part will be getting rid of building eqpt - cement mixers, bags of hammers, planes and plumbing fittings plus copper pipes and lead, 4 old 2 man saws, thousands of bricks - list is endless. Can't help thinking there is value in some of them but not sure. We have also added plenty of power tools which will be useless with less land. I prefer plain white walls, wood and brick but Julie likes family photos - big battle ahead I suspect.

    I will! I had never heard of it before. Thanks. I'm glad you like the cat posts. I enjoy reading about Dennis, and I'm glad he did well on his first night. Congratulations to you both! :)

    @dunelm I just saw an online ad that made me think of you and your granddaughter. The ad is for a company called Kinetic Internet and the headline that caught my attention was ENOUGH SPEED FOR EVERYONE.

    It was a great day, thanks, my reward was a slightly modified mixed grill and he's toddled off to play with his new kit :)

    I love your posts but please dont join in in these offensive cat posts because how would you feel (under the licence of humour) if I said something similar about Wispa. There are cat people and dog people on here, people who love both, and people who just dont but it dose cause offence and distress and I am sure thats not what you want.
