This post is going to be a long list – sorry!
Day 23 I got rid of:
- Some coat hangers – given to friend.
- Some plastic wine glasses – charity shop
- Some more greetings cards – charity shop
- A suncatcher – charity shop
- A picture frame – charity shop
- Some gift bags – charity shop
- A DS Game – charity shop
- A set of masks to make – charity shop
- A curtain track – charity shop
- A couple of sew on patches/motifs – charity shop
- Some more cotahangers – charity shop
- A Nike waterproof never worn – charity shop
- 2 glasses which have been stuck together for months – recycled
- half a solid bag of cement – landfill
- A load of run out pens – landfill
- Some broken golf tees – landfill
- General usesless bits and bobs from drawer clear out – landfill
- A broken tape measure
- Some odd greetings cards without envelopes – recycled
- some wallpaper offcuts – recycled
- Some pictures/craft projects done by my kids (I know, I know… but they do so many and if I kept them all I’d fill my entire house with them. Anyway they are not their stuff!) – landfill
- A mess of tangled thread – burnt
- Half a dozen squirty bottles of children’s paint – used up by splashing/spreading over the walls of the potting shed. It does look nice and colourful now!
Day 24 – The big garage sort out begins.
This is all rubbish – I’ve recycled where I can, burned things which will not cause too much pollution and put the rest in the dustbin.
- Dried up glue
- Bits of Cable
- Flooring underlay with mouse nibblings
- A broken foot pump
- A broken decorators spatula/knife/spreader
- A mouse nibbled shower curtain
- A frayed and mouse nibbled rug
- Some broken hose fittings
- A broken tennis racquet
- Some mouse nibbled sponges
- An empty cable reel
- Several bits of strummer line too short to do anything with
- A broken chicken feeder
- A rusty filler gun
- Some plastic spoons so brittle that they snapped very easily
- Some plastic bowls
- Several hard paint brushes
- An almost empty tin of ancient paint stripper
- Some mouse nibbled polythene dust sheets
- A cracked cricket ball
- A mouse nibbled plastic table cloth
- Some solid filler
- A pair of crumbly rubber gloves
- A broken garden bird feeder
Mouse nibbling seems to be a recurring theme here. Note to self: I must make sure my bee frames and other equipment are in a vermin proof cupboard/trunk. I imagine beeswax is a bit of a delicacy for mice.
Completely randomly I have decided to put a photo of Batibou beach in dominica on today…enjoy!
