It all makes a lot of sense to me.
I am one of the very worst people for clearing out and tidying up, as all my children would tell you. But clearing out ten years or so of accumulated genuine junk seems useful and sensible and Simon, if it's anything like what even I steel myself to do from time to time, you'll be finding hidden treasures all the time!
Do you find you get sidetracked, rather as I do when clearing out a corner of a spare bedroom I find myself sitting down and reading a fresh a whole lot of letters before making a final decision on them?
Worst of all is when I come across yet another leaflet or booklet or even one of my own notebooks with notes on doors knocked on and return visits made! I did that the other day. You can guess where it went! LOL!
And by the way, thanks for this very very robust and sane site that was such a help to me in extricating myself from the WT clutches!
