Morning all! Hope I haven't missed anything . It looks beautiful today!
Dove - you mention first school books etc. One day when I was around 17 (and therefore wouldn't have had anywhere to put them if I tried) mother threw my childhood in the bin: books, certificates, school reports, arts and crafts I'd made. I'm assuming she probably did the same for my brother (he's her favourite so possibly not: I know all of his toys are still in the loft as the builder has been showered in action men a few times). I didn't know she was doing it until it was too late.
Why not wrap the box up and present it to them as a birthday gift? That way you look good for saving it, it's out of your hands, and they can deal with it!
