going going gone

i've taken four car loads of 'stuff' to the second hand shop. things are looking decidedly less cluttered and i'm feeling lighter somehow. emotionally at least, the diet certainly isn't working. i don't regret throwing anything out (donating) but today i took a bag of toys to the sh shop and unfortunately the hand of my sister's doll was in it. i rang the shop and will go and have a look on wednesday. drrr she gave me her doll years ago when she got rid of most of them years ago. i keep meaning to put it on ebay, it's probably worth something to someone :). she had so many dolls when we were kids that my dad had to build her special shelves all around the room. she liked dolls. our neighbour used to sew clothes for them. i had two dolls. susan was one and i can't remember what the other one was called. i wasn't into dolls. i had an impressive marble collection until raymond armini pinched them. i was good at sports and preferred to spend time with dad in the shed than mum in the kitchen. mum, dad and my sister had/have the really really tidy and clean gene. i didn't get that. i think i'm adopted. :( lol. the pic is a cat called princess lilo. just adorable

i've had the house painted and didn't even think to get low allergy paint. it looks great but i'm suffering atm. hopefully it won't last too much longer. i've tried everything. i've got one of those air cleaner things, puts clean air back. don't know what they are called. open all the windows while i'm home but it's freezing. :( am trying nilodour, vanilla, essential oils, carb soda, candles, oil burner. i can't think of anything else. dustin is upstairs and he's not happy. actually he's freezing too. i have a lamp over him to try and warm him up but i don't think it's working. ahhhhhhhhh horrible week at work. everyone is resigning. bloody restructure. boss should publish a book. how NOT to implement a restructure. my bestie work buddy left but so did the wicked witch from the west. hahahaha. you win some, you lose some. i just wish i could get rid of this paint smell. if you have any ideas please post them, i'm desperate. my sister bought a scooter and i'm jealous. i want one. she lives in a small country town so not much traffic.
