Children's Toys

Where do all the children's toys come from? I look around my house and there are toys everywhere. I look in the attic... more toys, the garage... more toys, the garden shed... yes, you've guessed it, more toys!

Tiny toys for me to trip over, huge toys I've no space for, electronic toys that gobble up battery power, outdoor toys indoors...

As Christmas rapidly approaches, I am beginning to truly dread the once yearly visit from dear old Santa Claus.

I'm starting to feel like I'm being pushed out of my own house by all the toys that have taken up residence since the arrival of our three children.

I know I need to have a big clear out and head off to the Charity shops but right now I just don't have the time, energy or inclination. I also feel somewhat mean even considering throwing away toys the children would enjoy playing with if they remembered they had them!
