The other night while relaxing on my sofa, I glanced around my home. As previously discussed, while Casa di Livy is always clean, it also always tends to be cluttered. Perpetually full of stuff.
While conducting this survey, I made a quick list of the things that clutter la casa and prove either unusable or utterly pointless.
DRY CLEAN ONLY CLOTHES: That I wore the once and then discovered that they were dry clean only and have never worn since as I can't clean them.
BAGS FOR LIFE: Under the sink there are approximately 12000 bags for life. I get one every time I go shopping as I always forget mine. Bag wise, there isn't a life I am not going to be fully prepared for.
SIZE 8 JEANS: That I no longer fit into but refuse to throw out. On Mondays, while Steve is at football, I gaze at them longingly while eating cheesey garlic bread.
ALCOHOL: There are currently 14 bottles of wine and three cases as beer in the kitchen, as well as the optics that are a permanent feature on the wall. There is also an entirely disgusting bottle of Metz 40 which tastes like paint stripper.
WIRES: There are wires all over the flat. Everywhere. Some are in use, most are just there. What are they for? Which appliance do they fit?
LAKELAND CATALOGUES: Always a pleasure to browse though while fantasising about buying a jam funnel and a special avocado slicer. I never will but that is by the by.
LOYALTY CARDS FOR EVERY SHOP IN THE WORLD: Each of which I forget when I go shopping.
And much, much more - seriously, the things I actually use are in the minority.
