This sort of turned into one of those jobs you wished you hadnt started , Ive upset them all by dumping all their coats in their seats in the living room and informing them put them away or i burn them !! Now have a huge dustbin bag of rags for the charity shop because ive thrown anything they moaned over , not as harsh as it sounds nothing my lot have finished with is ever more than rags . Chucked all the odd shoes i could find ..sod them ..they were given till this morning to take any they wanted .
On a good note Mr Bah Humbug in his urge to score a few points actually let me get the boys to drag my victorian cast iron legged table up from the bottom of the garden , ive been looking all summer for a replacement top and not found one , so its installed at the bottom of the stairs and looks just fine with an egyptian rug on the top to hide the state of it .
I also found a huge amount of craft stuff i havent been able to get to , including tapestry kits id forgotten about lots of quilt patterns and bindings .A lot will go to the charity shop .
So to be truthful ive spent the weekend ransacking the place trying to tidy up ...does that make sense?
