Well, in the end we had a really relaxed and quite weekend in Selkirk.
Oh, hang on! No! It’s the other one. We had a really busy, emotional but productive day clearing out seven car-loads of “stuff” from the shed.
I even managed to lose my head once or twice.
The irony was that most of the stuff that we binned was stuff that Dad had … “salvaged” from skips about twenty years ago.
On our first visit to the Civic Amenities Site (dump!) the attendant was wearing a shirt and high-vis bib. On the second visit he’d abandoned the shirt and was just wearing the high-vis. A couple of hours later, on our third trip he was topless. I can’t tell you how nervous we were on our fourth and final visit of the day.
We’re going back (to Selkirk) in a couple of weeks time for The Clearing of the Box Room. It makes Pandora’s Box feel like Disneyland!
