chocolate scented candles Yum!
I've been reorganising the house, sorting out the crap I really want from the tonnes of stuff we've carted around *just in case* for the last 7 moves. Somehow I don't think I'll be needing the box of staff training sessions I did for the bank. I left in 1999.Hubby has car parts for a car we haven't owned since 1989. Scary, huh? LOL
I don't think he's ever going to be so busy as a mechanic that he needs 8 wrench sets.
We also have kids bikes from when the 25 yr old was 5 and so many stuffed animals it is freaking unbelievable. 4 large boxes. Amazing how I haven't managed to toss them before this. I have a sneaking suspicion the kidlets conned Dad into putting them into his pile so I wouldn't notice.
I found stuff I haven't seen in 15 years. My prized record albums [ ya know, vinyl!] and a crystal radio I got for my 12th birthday. It still works, so do the records.
A Tenderheart carebear that I got given in 1985.
Our first mobile phone from 1995.
An original cabbage patch doll - repaired. She got squished in a Perth motorbike shop when one of the stands gave way and the bikes fell on everyone. Luckily the eldest was holding her doll and she was only cut slightly, the doll had to go to hospital with critical injuries.
An original Teddy Ruxpin with only one eye.
You don't want to know how much computer bits we have. Anyone remember the hand held scanners? Iomega Zip Drive? ROFL weird how it all seems such ancient technology now, yet some of it is not even 10 years old. I also found my original Mac, an Apple IIe.
So, we're going to take it all down to one of the markets and the rest is going to the tip.
This time I'm going to be heartless. *g* No longer will the plaintive cry of but what if we need it! work.
