    I'll have to spray it silver as it doesn't match anything.

    I put the silver spray away last year in a very special place to keep it safe

    Off for a catch up

    Morning all.

    I think it must be the time of the year for decluttering. Either that or the pristine and immaculate houses they view on Location

    Saturday afternoon it was raining so I got OH off the sofa and under the stairs were cleared out. Mostly it was cardboard boxes and bubble wrap but also there was 3 huge Ald sized bag fulls of OHs flypast, Top gear and rail mags which had travelled all around the house, no one wanting to deal with them. Last Christmas having run out of time I put them under the stairs. No one has read or looked at them in years. OH insisted in taking them to the charity shop (he did ring first to check)
    One jacket of OHs dating back about 20 years and in tatters I persuaded him to put into the rag collection.
    I've got 2 big bags of rucksacs and jackets for the charity shop.
    Otherwise a nice clean tidy under the stair cupboard with the 2 boxes of Christmas wine, Christmas glasswear and table decorations. I can get to the food storage shelves, the vaccum is tucked away and OH has access to his tool box.
    One cardboard box has gone back underneath with a cat blanket in

    I've got a pile of old lever arch files out from under the desk - no response from the local FB page yet but Olio has a non food section and then there is always Freecycle

    OH was up in the loft last night and came down with 2 dragons in a box - not entirely sure who they belong to but its not me. They are going with the rucksac and jacket collection.

    OH says something is living in the shed and I am biting my tongue. I have suggested on numerous occassions that it needs emptying and tidying - we had months of good weather for doing exactly that. We had Errant son home for a year to manhandle heavy stuff and to do tip runs if need be. Instead OH said no, the shed it falling down and we need a new one. If we do get a new shed that is exactly what will have to happen, shed tidying. In the meantime we have something living in the shed .

    All our unwanted clothes either get weighed in for cash (I think it's 60p per kg) or put on fb, apart from the really ropey stuff that's only fit for the re-cycling bin

    When I went into Costa today the guy at the till said "oh, so the codes are back are they?" and rolled his eyes at me. However he let me use two in the same transaction and for cakes, so I can't really complain. I got 3 muffins with two codes and paid 5p :-). I also got the 3 Majestic wine.

    I mustn't buy any of the 2.99 bottles from Lidl tomorrow, we've got so much in the house! I'll definitely be going in for the cheese though.
