Aw crap - I mean really?

I have just had workmen here in my ceiling space. One of them legs it up there through the man-hole and shouts down to his off-sider "Better get the other fellas in here - we'll need a hand with all this stuff" Now I am fairly sure he meant to say "crap' but stopped in deference to the fact that the housholder (me) was standing right there looking mortified. Exactly how do you forget that your ceiling space is full of boxes of stuff ? Stuff that is gonna prevent workmen getting in there and doing what they need to. Crap.


Just look at all this stuff!


That's a lot of boxes! And now they are taking up space in my house 'cos they can't go back in the roof. Time for a sort out of course. There are books the kids had as little ones and school books and even some candles (wtf?). In one box I found this ...


This was the dress I wore to get married - 25 years ago! I felt like the most beautiful girl in the world that day. The ManBeast reckons I'm still okay. I wore a veil with a coronet of flowers that I made myself.


Pretty detail around the neck. I think I had tiny pearl ear-rings as well. The most surprising thing of all though is the size. I do not  remember being that small! Of course I was a child bride ...

Oh no! I guess it was a case of out of sight out of mind! Enjoy revisiting all those treasures. You know, I remember you telling me you had put a heap of stuff up there. But helpfully, as friends do, I forgot too! xx

I'm going to send my husband up into the attic when he gets home tonight, with the hope that I too have some forgotten treasures up there, but I don't hold much hope.
