    I think my Oh is emotionally attatched to every single thing he has ever owned - I dont think he has the spark of joy feeling, just the need to cling onto everything.

    Ive gone in the other direction, there is very little that gives me any spark. Ive gone from hoarding to being a rampant disposer

    One shirt of OHs I did not particularly like and he carelessly left it on the dining room table
    He does realise there is a rule that anything left on the dining room table is destined for boxing and/or bagging for the next charity shop run - he does not realise this rule also applies to him and any belongs he leaves on the table.

    so after a week of the shirt being strewn on the dining room table I saw and it did indeed get put into a charity bag. Unfortunately on the afternoon we were doing the charity shop run OH spotted it between the back door and the car and it was removed from the charity bag where it had taken up residence

    He said "my favourite shirt!" - obviously not

    Then he pinned it on the washing line and there it remained in wind, rain, hail and snow for about 6 months - I was waiting to see how long it was before he re claimed his favourite shirt
    Eventually at the start of Feb when we were going up to York for the weekend he finally rescued it from the washing line

    Actually managed to get out in the garden this afternoon, finally edged the lawns. A bit of physical work does no end of good for the psyche.

    we have been to Chester today - excellent day out and we collected all the o2 freebies - walkers crisps from whsmith on the station, Thorntons chocs, free coke from Boots
    Also OH got his free coke from Greggs but his free birthday cake is not showing. I had neither - I wonder if there is a block on my app.
    And finished up in Piture and Piano for our free double Baileys over ice

    Also in Boots on my app I had Folic acid and vitamin D vits as a freebie and also 50 points if I bought anything from healthcare so i bought 25p paracetamol

    No sign of any reduced section in Superdrug and no So V in Mr Tosssers which is free on COS

    Now home and utterly shattered, still draped over the sofa - I really need to drag my carcass out to the garden but the gravity on this sofa is very strong ...

    This has reminder me about the carnage that is going on in OHs wardrobe regarding shirts - I did make him empty the wardrobe out altogether once, some shirts culled and then I put everything back organised by strict rotation - short and long sleeves, by colour, formal and casual. Needless to say it never stayed that way, he just rams thing sin any old how and only after severe nagging. At least though the door is shut on it and no one except him ever has to see the messiness in his shirt wardrobe.

    I did the same with my tops - emptied the wardrobe, culled a few too long in the tooth, anything that was too summery or suitable for cruises was folded up separately awaiting the sun, sleeveless, short, long sleeved and all in colour order - it takes seconds to find anything and seconds to put clean washing away and its stayed in perfect order now for over a year - it will never need to be re done ...

    We were in Chester very early and it was very quiet.
    In Thorntons we were only allowed to choose anything from the top 2 rows - a bit odd as when we got them earlier in the week we could choose any of the £3 bags.

    I think the last bus I used was the York park and ride one. I would quite like to have a bus pass but we are too far from the border so it will be about 10 years before I get issued with one Mind you I don't think we even have a bus now that does our route - I'd have to do about 15 mins walk to get to the nearest bus stop to go anywhere
    We walk from the station along the canal path now and come up by Tesco at the bottom of Frodsham Street. We didn't realise that Frodsham street is being relaid - not even sure now where the rail bus drops off

    Also something seems to have been built on Goosetack car park but not sure exactly what ...
