Well here’s a bins treat for you all, we’re having a bulky rubbish collection in the morning for the old stuff we’ve wrenched the whole of life out of.   Please note I cannot take any responsibility for those of you who may mistakenly think it’s Wednesday and put you bins out in error.  I hope you enjoy this additional blog post…

Should you recognise this reprobate from Birmingham student politics in the 1970s, pop his name into the comments box below.  Hmm, I’d have been hard pushed if I hadn’t seen his name next to the picture.

If you’re struggling, I’ll pop some hints in over the next couple of days.

So, not so dull this week (see pigsonthewing’s comments from last week).  Image 1 – our usual stash, but ythe next one shows a far more impressive truth.

I have put out an enormous pile of paper recycling, along with a good pile of cardboard.  Within the paper are the shreddings of some extraordinarily old items of correspondence and my study is a considerably larger room.

Plus…

059Oxfam put out a plea for book donations, so I rose to that challenge and emptie a bookcase into plastic bags.  I wish I;d counted them now, but am delighted that others will now have the chance to enjoy all those great stories (and some not so great).

Now what shall I do with that old bookcase?
