TO-DO LISTS

To-do Lists for today are to:
Call removal company with postcode of our destination when we leave our cottage
Load car with unwanted bedroom furniture and transport it to Sally Army shop
Load car again with enormous pile of clothes and, you've got it, transport to Sally Army shop...

We are being as hard nosed as possible about what we will keep and what we will dispose of. The shorts and t-shirts have been set aside for going on to Caxton for the summer (here's hoping...)and just about everything else is being re-cycled to the charity shops. We have already been pretty thorough in having our clear out, so good in fact that when we came to do a tip run yesterday it only consisted of two aluminium wheels and an elderly step ladder. We are going to get the Caravan into secure storage tomorrow so that will be out of the way, dismantle the wardrobes ready for the removal company and probably give the grass its first cut.
This morning I am off to Peterborough for some retail therapy with my friend Val - nothing too exciting, new knickers for Himself.

Hi Lesley. Having a clear out is so good huh?
It makes you realise just how little you need to get by. I hope that the retail therapy was good fun.

And how many pairs of knickers does himself - or indeed herself, for that matter, consider an optimum number for continuous cruising? Are we operating a weekly, fortnightly or monthly smalls wash cycle? And yes, we both have at least 31 pairs of pants - just in case we get an extended cruise in.

Hi Jo
It is true, we 'need' very little to get by quite comfortably and I am geeting much better at recognising that. Caxton is not overly stuffed with things and we hope to keep it that way. The trick now is to balance storage/disposal of the cottage contents?

You caught me out, I couldn't resist replacing some of my old bloomers when in M&S though I spent most of my time lurking amidst the male underwear section -I thought I recognised one of the models - has 'A' a secret career?

Modelling? Can you hear the hoots of derision all the way over in Lincs? This is the man who has the head of a potato and the body of a cream egg! Love him really...

Sorry Greygal,
Must have been someone else in the leopard skin thong then...
