Not just cleaning up, but CLEANING UP.
Sorting through lots of pieces of paper that are no longer required and I don't need to look at again...
...and some that I possibly want to look at again from my current perspective, but realising that that is just the thought that lead me to keep the pieces of paper that I don't need to look at again, I've resolutely thrown these out too.
And in this process I've found lots of things that hadn't got into their homes. An envelope with $12 cash in it. And two separate stashes of postage stamps: Nine 50 cent fauna of the Rainforest stamps and twenty-six 45 cent Christmas stamps.
... And 20 sen from the Bank Negara Malaysia, which possibly doesn't add much to my stash, but nevertheless I found it.
So I wouldn't need to buy stamps this year, except that the cost of postage has gone up.
But still, I resent finding nearly thirty dollars worth of cash and stamps how much?
It's the only time I've ever known housework to pay. (Apart from the occasional coin in the bottom of the washing machine)
Maybe I can post Emily Sue's books back to her now.
