This morning while I was outside hanging out the washing I started to look around at all of the junk we seemed to have. I started gathering up broken toys and old pieces of outdoor games then decided that a trip to the dump was in order.
Thanks to Google Translate I was able to find and understand the information from my city website. We needed to go to city hall to get a certificate (of something) before we could go to the transfer station. We were able to get this done in two minutes -feeling good!
After lunch we loaded up the car with all our old rubbish then set off to find the place. Only one wrong turn and we found it - just a ten minute drive away. Of course, as is often the case in my area, the staff were friendly, courteous and helpful. We offloaded ten kilos of stuff and paid a measly $1.00 for the privilege.
I feel like a weight has lifted being able to get rid of this stuff. AND I am proud of myself doing it on my own. We celebrated with a run on the beach (and an icecream). It was beautiful weather.
I need a photo for an upcoming feature on Etsy. What do you think of this one? I'll be honest, I edited it a bit with Flickr. Do I look normal?
