Four years and sixteen days ago, I finally got the keys to Vesterled.
My shipping container was still somewhere in the middle of the Atlantic and I remember sitting on the floor drinking that bottle of champagne, still in disbelief that I’d actually pulled the whole thing off!
I have a similar feeling tonight, for different reasons ;-)
The charity shop came today to pick up a couple of pieces of furniture and other things, and it occurred to me that everything I was donating had originally come from that shop. How cool is that?
I supported a charity instead of a corporation, enjoyed things that had already been loved by someone else, then gave them back for someone else to use and enjoy. Fiscally and environmentally responsible—I might be feeling a little smug about that!
The movers will be here on Sunday morning, and this room will once again be a blank canvas. I hope the new owner will love this space as much as I have…
