I have started sorting through all our cupboards and packing up ‘stuff’ I don’t use. We have 4 spare bedrooms, all with large wardrobes, all full of stuff … and I’m not really sure exactly what is in some of them.

I have cleared out my craft room which was a huge challenge, and now I am starting on ‘the boys’ stuff.

Easiest was s2 as he had a sort out and tidy up last time he was home ……… and all of that is now packed into one large box (including an aquarium set-up) plus one small box of photos.

I found this treasure amongst his gear …….. made by my dad who was a very talented handyman, engineer and was a fighter pilot in the war. I can just picture his delighted smile as he tinkered away in his workshop and created this aeroplane from an old spark plug.
