I decided to enter a minimalist phase and take advantage of a local fundraiser that was seeking household goods to auction. The only problem was, I couldn’t really see anything in the house I was prepared to do without.
I consulted the Hottie, who is far and away the most practical member of the Crone community. “What do we have that we don’t need?” I asked her. She looked around the futility room thoughtfully. “No-one ever uses the ironing board” she ventured.
This is true, but we kept it anyway.
