We were up in our loft one recent afternoon. I rediscovered a set of wonderful coffee-top table books. I felt overjoyed, enthusiastic and excited about dipping into them again. Meanwhile, my daughter was marvelling at her old dolls and Pokemon cards and my husband was sitting there amused after discovering the pink RAZR V3 phone comparing how ridiculous it looked beside his current iPhone. I just think ‘decluttering’ needs to be done very selectively. Sometimes I think we’re all so hell-bent on moving on, but one thing I’ve learned from this lockdown is to cherish the wonderful times we’ve shared with others; and allowing ourselves to keep some of the possessions that are representations and timepieces of those precious memories.
