I can’t believe that it’s day 85 of my decluttering challenge. The sun shone again today and I was itching to get some more gardening done or sort out a drawer, cupboard, corner, shelf etc., but I just didn’t get the time.
It wasn’t until this afternoon that I realised that I’d left the lawnmower in front of the garage after mowing the lawn yesterday afternoon. No one stole it, ha ha, firstly because it’s a pretty safe area around here and secondly because no one is walking around anyway due to the current coronavirus pandemic. Thankfully, it also hadn’t rained overnight. My battered old lawn mower is now safely back in the garage.

This evening I’m going to switch on my Synctuition meditation track a bit earlier than usual and declutter my mind. I have been doing this every night since I started the trial back in February. I signed up for year recently and really look forward to it every night. I’m 30% of the way through level 2 and tonight’s track is called ‘Time’. Here goes…
