I have to downsize. Here I live in a 3 bedroom unit. I would have, could have moved into a two bedroom unit – if there was one when I came here 4 years ago. I had visions that my grandchildren would come and stay. But now I find I have too many possessions.
The two youngest did stay a few times, but these days are too busy – they are into their teens. The older two have not spend time with me – they are too busy. It is a complaint of many grandparents.
I have decided to leave the unit – and move into the Toyota Coaster. But I have a lot of things to get rid of. I have to downsize and it is not easy.
How to Downsize
I have some BIG things that I need to find new homes for. Two single beds, two televisions, a bicycle (electric two wheeler), some book shelves, books, a desk, some small tables, a filing cabinet – and lots more.
Will I be able to sell some of them? Don’t know but will try. There’s a big gas BBQ in the van that I don’t want, so I will add that to my list of things to leave here.
Car Boot Sale
It was a little disappointing. There were not a lot of customers, so I didn’t sell a lot. I did dispose of some things, though. Some plants, and some fun things that I gave to children. And I made a small profit.
FB Buy, Swap and Sell
Some of my items will find themselves onto this Facebook page this week. Will give it a try. Even if I sell a couple of things it will be good. Maybe the BBQ and the bike?
Off to Camp
This week I will attempt my first camp. I am going to Coochin Creek, some 30 kms north of Beachmere. I have not been there before. It is not by the beach, but a creek. A friend is supposed to be going with me – but not sure if that is going to happen yet.
So I have a lot of learning to do this week. I still haven’t worked out how to switch lights on, use the water (and toilet). There is so much to learn. Hopefully I will survive.
Postscript: Due to the damage/result of cycle Debbie, I cannot book the campside at the moment.
