WW I am with you on the ebay stuff. I have to justify the purchase of several essential items for riding. Shall we get anything on in the next week or so?

I am definitely decluttering. My problem is Ebay. I put things to one side to sell on, and never get round to it!


I've stopped doing that. I've started raking stuff yo the children s hospice charity shop a few miles away instead.

ok ,i will cull somethings

i just had an odd thought that i have enough large general purpose "machete sized"blades for a bushcraft spider ,and far too many large (kilo of copper on a stick)soldering irons for any reasonably purpose.

materials such as bits of reclaimed timber ,very antique bricks ,good metals and suchlike will get used but i recon i can have a serious clearout in a few departments .

Dpack, if you have any very old tools, either a society that collect and use/display them might be interested, or one of these tools for Africa charities. The best of them sort though first and sell on any really valuable old ones in the UK and use the money to buy more new ones to send.

He is welding an MOT failure for a friend. So far he did 9 straight hrs on Friday, and since 7am this morning. Ive just gone and said 'The rain is on its way', and got a mouthful.

meantime, in the shed, there are 4 ride-ons, 2 strimmers, and 2 mowers...............

Dont think a cup of tea will really do the job...

we cleared he upstairs of our barn conversion last weekend. all the bits of wood that 'might be useful' are neatly stacked and chopped into 30 cm lengths.
the tools have all moved downstairs and been organised onto shelves.
I made himself do the putting on the shelves as I have had enough of being blamed for him not knowing where his stuff is because I ' must have put it somewhere!'
we went to the tip with a 3m trailer heaving with stuff.
I have even made a new friend with a boy smaller than my smallest who can benefit from the bag of clothes and shoes I had tucked under my bed.

Well i cleared the box of 'stuff ' of the top of the stairs and chucked the rubbish out and put the useful stuff away where it belongs.
