Denise: There’s a major clear-out underway. Jonathan and I have been having a bit of a clear out: things we no longer need, never needed, or have ‘grown out of’: My Open University books; Hiking equipment; nearly five years of cover cds from Jonathan’ subscription to The Word magazine (all stored on hard disk, and a backup too, and no space to store the CDs themselves); engineering text books. Ebay, charity shop (the Thrift Shop in Daliburgh), or in the end just the wheelie bins. And daughter Catherine in Navarre, on the phone, is up for it too. She’s been living there 5 years now and by now if she hasn’t missed it she doesn’t need it. So that’s a guitar for sale, tent, Film Studies text books, travel guides, and all the cases for all the DVDs and CDs that we posted to her three or more years ago. (But there’s still about 150 CDs to post to her now, again without cases and inlays.) Selling on ebay never raises much money – hardly enough to justify the time spent laboriously listing the items, but it eases the conscience to know the item is going to someone who wants it.
