All the small things

[This will no doubt become a series of posts on moving house…]

Compared to most people (and I am very much like most people in that I find a sense of self-righteousness in comparing myself to most people) I am not a very “stuff” orientated person.

If you allow the Volvo as an exception of course.

Fight Club had a big impact on my life with the lines about stuff ending up owning you and my own personal favourite – “you are not your fucking khakis”

When I lived in NZ I earnestly tried not to accumulate any “stuff” bar what I considered useful/functional/”essential”.

Mainly that worked out. It’s always a good idea to be able to squeeze eveything you own into your car.

Despite having the Volvo I’ve now broken my own rule. The furniture was the killer. If it wasn’t for the desk and the sofa I would have been in with half a chance.

Frankly it is disturbing the amount of stuff one can accumulate in such a short period of time.
