memory archive — day 81

Thanks god the trampoline is gone! We got it from a friend who hadn’t realised that the rubber string holding the mat in place was about to tear on one side. I hadn’t realised either. We’d been keeping it in the garden for about three years, hoping that the string wouldn’t rip mid-jump one day. As with so many items that I have been disposing over the past year, the kids didn’t even mention once that the trampoline was gone. Yet another encouragement to declutter!
