Its Not A Yard Sale!

Over the last couple of days we have been having a big clear out. I have totally emptied all the crap and junk we have stored in the Attic space over the last 10 years or so, the spare room is being redecorated and I have not yet hit the out building. The SkipMonday afternoon we had a skip delivered to dump everything in, everything from the attic, the spare room and if I am honest some odd bits of household stuff from the kitchen bin.

A little while after the skip was dropped off we popped into town to get some new step ladders so I could get in and out of the attic faster and with out me breaking my neck in the process. When we got back after about an houror so later our drive gates were open and an old push chair and a travel cot had been taken. This annoyed Leki quite a bit, "If they had knocked on the door and asked if they could have them, I would have seid yes, but to wait until we are out and to sneek in and just take them" she said, and is still saying as we seem to have attrackted some unwelcome visitors in the form of Skip Rats. It seems a couple of times a day now they return and have a bloody good dig through our rubbish, taking old baby gates, vacume cleaners all sorts but only when we are out, which is rather freeky. They are going to have a field day when I get started on the shed this weekend, as the skip starts to get god knows how many empty and half empty pain tins, old bikes as well as other bits I find in there. Mind you I am very tempted not to clean the back yard for a day or so then clean up a days worth of dog poo into a bag and put that in the skip under some of the usual stuff.

So Yes my neighbours, Noscere and her Royal Highness The Lek of Leki`s Land are having a clean out, if your so interested in our junk then ask, dont just take it. Its not a bloody Yard Sale! Oh and no you cant put it on Ebay selling it as Nosceres old comb or Leki`s old toothbrush, that just will not do.
