My take on trends.


OK! I am decluttering following the Marie Kondo Method. Ditch anything which does not spark joy, she says. Keep only that which sparks joy.

Starting with the fridge, I have thrown away everything low fat, without sugar, or has a healthy label. They don't spark joy. Now, the fridge is empty, I can ditch that, too. And the cooker doesn't fill me with joy. Definitely no spark there! Out it goes.

And the kitchen sink.

In fact, now I come to think of it, joy is pretty well lacking anywhere in the kitchen. My favourite foods - chocolate and crisps - don't need to be kept in the kitchen. A bowl (spark spark) next to my armchair will do.

So, I have just booked a demolition team for next week, to demolish the kitchen, to replace it with a hot tub covered over with glass to maximise any warmth in the sun.

And if any of the demolition team sparks joy, I'll keep him.

You've taken this trend to heart. You know what's important. I wonder if this idea extents to other parts of life that spark no joy. Like shaving and sit-ups.

The last sentence is a killer. Maybe I should come over and bring my wrecking bar 🤪

I love it Marie. Why not make everything we keep based on joy.
Take it all the way to the top and have politicians dressed as clowns telling jokes instead of arguing :)
