I have a small job that needs doing.
It’s a simple enough job. All I have to do is clear out a room. Herself would like a “day room” to have for herself near to the action [i.e. me].
The room used to be my little office so it has a shed load of computer equipment in there. In theory I can move that anywhere in the house but there’s a lot of it, from disks and routers through to a printer. Wherever it goes, it will take a bit of space.
It also contains two desks. One can be scrapped but the other is not only too nice to scrap but is also too damned heavy to move very far.
Then there are two book cases full of books, manuals and the like.
And a freezer.
And all the grandkids’ toys that they make a bee-line for when they visit.
A filing cabinet.
A nice bureau that I inherited.
And a load of rugs, a gas heater and a load of stereo stuff.
The problem is where to put all this stuff. There isn’t anywhere left in the house. Basically I am going to have to chuck nearly everything away.
So far I have nearly emptied the larger book case which was full of magazines, books, manuals and the like. I have hauled two sacks out to the garage and there is a four foot high pile of books in the kitchen. I am being quite ruthless and there is a lot going that has great sentimental value.
I can move the freezer out to the garage, but then I need to chuck out a load of stuff from the garage just to make space for it.
It may be a simple job, but it’s a fucking nightmare.
