For some misguided reason I had kept the boxes from our electrical/electronic goods purchases over the years and had amassed a large quantity of them. They will all go to the local tip today, thus enabling me to further insulate the roof space. Should have done it years ago. I looked up the price of loft insulation and was surprised to find that the local builder's merchants were a good deal more expensive than a couple of DIY stores. I'm still hoarding my photo enlarger and associated kit, along with the remnants of the large model railway that used to go around the walls of our sons' bedroom. I might give that stuff to a local model railway society when things get back to normal. Some useful finds included a set of boules and various beach bat and ball stuff, along with forgotten toys that will be useful when the grandbairns are able to visit. Once upon a time we were into home brewing of beer and wine, so several demijohns etc to be disposed of when lockdown ends. Sadly no boxes of valuable Chinese pottery, old masters, or exotic jewellery to be found ! Sounds like our loft, there are boxes for several defunct computers up there. And also from memory, there is a sledge, a whole silk parachute, old children’s books and toys, old chimney sweep rods, pots Ian made at college 50 odd years ago, the last 7 year’s accounts, a bag with 6 straw boater hats, boxes of xmas decorations (most of which we don’t use), etc. Might have to get up there now and declutter!!
