It`s been a whistlestop weekend chez moi.
We have relocated from Bedroom A to bedroom B, so that Bedroom A can be stripped, re-plastered and redecorated. Everything that was previously in the room was relocated to virtually every other room in the house, so things were ............ messy.
On Friday, DH and I went to town and on a whim , he decided that we would get our house valued by the estate agents.
Don`t ask. Just don`t ask.....
The estate agent said he could come out 11 am Sat morning to value the house.
Hello, we have black plastic bags filled with personal possessions in every room of the house bar the toilet !
Undeterred by this, DH said that would do just fine.
So, needless to say, we spent Friday afternoon and late into the night, and all Sat morning frantically sorting stuff and moving all the bags into the already over-stuffed garage. About a third of our kitchen is now occupied by cardboard boxes, but other than that, the house is clear.
My house is clear of junk ! Woo hoo !
I threw out 12 black bin bags of stuff, and three black bin bags of unwanted clothes went to the Salvation Army charity .
The purge has begun :-)))))
Now to persuade DH to get rid of boxes of elderly computer equipment and weight training that hasn`t been touched in the at least five years.
EBay, here we come , LOL.
PS Oh, the house is now valued at 270,000 UKP. He said if we put the house up for sale next Spring, we may well get 290,000 UKP. So for the moment, we are concentrating on finishing the necessary work, and then we will think about looking for another house.
DH would really like a detached house, rather than a semi-detached.
