    Wow that must feel strange having had Covid and not knowing you were infected. It's good to have the antibodies though 🙂. Great news on the payrise 🎉 .

    Well done on getting your cupboard organised. I don't feel very motivated to do things like that at the moment.

    Are British Heart Foundation closed for furniture donations as they would probably take it. I always send my old furniture to a local charity that use unwanted furniture for homeless people when they first get off the streets. It’s a shame if it has to go to the tip.

    Shame about the furniture. Is it worth free cycling it?
    You sound very motivated.
    Great news about the windfall :)

    We have a reuse and recycle fb group here. I posted some old material that would have gone to the tip. They were snapped up and we’re collected the following day form me posting. There is often furniture on there which always seems to go. Do you have anything like that near you save you struggling to get it to the tip. I was quite upset seeing a lot of dh stuff heading to the tip as the site closed and only reopened last week due to Covid.
    Your walk sounded lovely 👍

    How are you Sunshine? I hope you're having a good Saturday.
    I am ok HH , just been busy with work, parents , GKs and life in general .
    You will be pleased to know my old sofa and chair is going to be taken away by a company that break them down and recycle what they can. It's costing me money to get rid but there is absolutely no charity taking anything big in my area.
    New one is arriving Tuesday hopefully. My road is closed at the moment because they are resurfacing the main road and we have all the tarmac laying machines and rollers outside . I am not sure where a furniture lorry is going to park as all the workers vans are likely to be here as well. 
    DGD stayed on Friday night and is really excited about school, DGS wants to stay at home with his mum. 
    This week I am putting in a request to go down to 3 days a week from September, I need to do it to help my parents out a bit more , the salary will be ok as all the debt will be gone. 
    I am hoping it gets accepted I am giving a lot of notice . 
    Enjoy Sunday evening.

    There you are. Good news about the sofa, even though you’ve had to pay at least it’s getting recycled. 

    Sounds good going down to 3 days 👍
