Sorting through the ottoman

My tidy up continues.  Tuesday was a busy(ish) day – plus incredibly hot – so I didn’t achieve all that much.  We met M at Dinings for lunch and it was just the thing for a very hot day.  If you get the chance to go there, I recommend it completely.

So my job was to sort through all the stuff in the ottoman.  It’s small so didn’t take all that long.

Quite a lot isn’t suitable or big enough for the children so that stuff is going to the charity shop.  I found a mosquito net that is meant to go on my old buggy (which I’ve given to someone so I’ll post it to her.  I’ve never been aware of babies being bothered by mosquitos in London but I need to post it.  For completeness).  I found a load of baby swimsuits, baby hats and a broken under-the-buggy basket that we kept for some reason.

There were a few things I wasn’t sure what to do with – I have a bunch of socks that my Mum knitted out of rainbow wool that I don’t want to get rid of but which I don’t need immediate access to at all times.  Those I put in a carrier bag, which I shoved at the top of a wardrobe we have at the top of the stairs.

In the end I put the hats, gloves, scarves to the left, the fleeces and sweaters in the middle and the hats, gloves and scarf that are included in my son’s uniform to the right of it.

I’ll start sorting out my clothes soon.  In the meantime, check out these tacos.

These are so good
