The annoying thing was, most of the stuff would have gone into a dustbin. As she has had access to two sets of bins, 10minutes once a week would have cleared almost everything. But she sticks her head in the sand, ignores it until the last minute, and then expects someone else to sort it. OH had to unplumb the washer, of course we hadn't taken any tools, so we had to go to b and q to buy some.
My brother is sorting my dads garage, one carboot full at a time. There is now room for a pallet of compost in there, and the workbench is being converted to a potting bench. My dad had a bit of a hoarding gene too. When my brother takes the train set layout up to my sisters for her grandchildren, the half size snooker table is going to go, and mum is going to convert the front bedroom into a room where she can sit and read in the mornings. Does anyone want a set of blizzards books of woodworking projects? Also half a dozen ancient lawnmowers?
