Why is it so hard to throw things away?

Today have been tidying one of my childrens bedrooms, getting rid of stuff. Managed to clear a space but did also manage to move some outgrown cloths into the sewing room for re-use. The pile grows bigger and is seldom used.
I managed to get the kids in the garden weeding around their playhouse. The bribe for this was to be taken to the cinema to see "Hop". They did a good job after a while, managed to coerce the neighbours into helping, and only made a slight fuss! They have missed a bit though, so more garden fun tomorrow.

This only goes to show what a mess my garden is in, there is a lot to do, more planting, moving plants, generally loads of weeding. Mowing the grass always makes a difference. I am gardening organically and hence weed removal is by hand and seems to be a constant chore. I would happily spend days out lost in the garden but don't often manage to get there.

Back on Track

My daughter has helped me to set this up better, I had got a bit tangled up with formatting, settings and general technology. Happy easter, to you all, have just been away with the kids and other families, and had an interesting discussion regarding Jesus with 9 year old. " I thought Jesus died on Christmas Day " " No he was born at Christmas, he died at easter and that is why we celebrate" " What did he do at Halloween then?" Some general religious education might be useful.
