How's your day?

P.P., by the time you've  done you may as well turn it into a swimming pool. Or maybe even a decent elephant trap. Who knows what you could catch, the world's your lobster.:rolleyes:

Wished I'd  known Phil, I would have sent a bigger one. Seasons greetings anyway, ya miserable owd bugger.

Many years ago we used a fax machine a lot ........ fax? What’s one of those?  
A business colleague of my husband’s knew it was his birthday and he also knew he was very frugal when it came to buying the rolls of fax paper.   A fax started coming through in our upstairs office, it kept going on and on and on.  All it said on the fax message, in very large print, ‘Happy Birthday Roger’, time and time again, not only using up a whole roll of fax paper but also all the ink.  The paper went across the office floor, along the landing, down the stairs and along the hallway, before we managed to stop it printing by just unplugging the damn machine.

I've still got a fax machine. I noticed it yesterday on the desk hidden behind my iMac. I must chuck it in the next skip we have. I've not had a fax message in years. I also remember Telex where you typed messages in real time and it came out looking a bit like a telegram. I remember chucking that into the factory skip although it would probably sell on ebay to a collector today! Also do you remember those GPO switchboards where you plugged in a line to the appropriate extension?

We dumped our fax machine years ago but you’re right, would sell for a few bob these days.   What we have hung onto are boxes and boxes of 3 pin adaptors for the dozens of pieces of office, household and garden equipment we’ve bought and then thrown away when they’ve broken.  I’d love to dump the lot but I’m not allowed to ...... they COULD be useful.

We've had two skips this year so far. We've done the workshop, the shed, the two greenhouses and all the unwanted furniture that we'd put in the sun lounge. The landing is piled with disposables and we've not even started on the storeroom yet. We're taking a break until Jan and then we'll have the final purge. What we have have got is about 30 paintings and prints collected over the years and although not intrinsically valuable it would break my heart to dump them. There is no wall space available for them.

Third skip collected today. The skip hire driver would get more than a nod of approval from the hairy chested bus and lorry drivers on here. Precision reversing up our walled driveway and skip placed exactly where required. She is in her late 20's and has the looks and figure of a model. I've booked another skip but she may get suspicious collecting a forth empty skip :rolleyes:

We have boxes and boxes of things that we put on one side when my son and his family came to live in this big and rambling old house. It was supposed to be for just a few years until he could afford a house. Prior to covid he got a mortgage approved but then they were all stopped due to the virus. Now he's got to go through the whole business again when this is all over. Until then we keep moving the boxes around and breathing in as the space is getting smaller.

We had that problem when we down-sized on moving to Nottingham.  Our biggest issue with the move was that the buyers wanted to move into our house in 6 weeks.  We had accumulated 30 years of stuff because we’d moved several times and always to a bigger property so we’d never needed to dispose of anything.  We’d got about 30 paintings and prints that just wouldn’t suit this house we bought and we certainly didn’t have the wall space here, so we got a dealer to come and take the lot, all the pictures plus all the ‘country’ stuff that just wouldn’t suit a suburban house.  
Although I still have a beautiful set of Henry Alken original hunting prints that I wasn’t prepared to let go for a song. 
Anyone interested?!!

We have 2 very huge paintings that I always have problems where to put them, but I would never part with them. We also have a large photograph of an old man that was taken by my niece that was shown in a photographic exhibition.
