Well the race is on to get the house looking good enough to put on the market. What this actually means is doing a huge amount of de-cluttering. We’ve lived in this house for 18 years, we’re all hoarders so it’s a very daunting task. Luckily it’s all in good nick as we paint on a regular basis & have made a lot of improvements to the house over the years. We had professional shots done when we listed late 2008 so we can use them.
The plan is to get the house at it’s best, then while it’s on the market we’ll attack the 2 garden sheds, one huge, the garage & the boxes & boxes of stuff stored in the roof.
Trips to the charity shop have begun, gifts to friends are ongoing & I’m adding things to my ‘Jan’s Trading Page’ blog as often as possible.
Paul has started listing some things on Ebay, currently a kiln I bought in the 80’s to fire porcelain dolls in & never quite got around to.
Oh & his huge Star Trek magazine/folder collection. Let‘s hope there’s a trekkie out there. :-))) We’ll also be listing the piano, my beloved shop counter, still in two minds about that one, my Edwardian dressing table & loads of folk art stuff from the business we had in a previous life. I will also be selling most of my antique sewing machine collection.
Luckily I have sold some of the books I have on offer coz a gorgeous new book arrived on Monday. I know, I know I’m meant to be getting rid of, but I just couldn’t resist & it’s gorgeous, though I won’t have time to play for a few months yet.
