that I inherited when she died has had a reprieve. It’s been stored up in the attic since she passed away as I’ve had nowhere to keep it and now I’m heading to the States it can’t really stay there.
Mum and I hauled it down from the loft and I spruced it up and gave it a good rub over with furniture wax so it’s looking all tidy and clean again now. We’ve had it in sat in the hallway for the past few weeks now, a bit lost and possibly a little nervous about Molly’s hyperactive teeth.
Been putting off dealing with it but today it was supposed to take a trip down to the auction rooms to be put into the next sale but when Mum reversed the car to the back door and we got ready to shift it I just couldn’t do it. It always used to be sat in Nanna’s front room when we went to visit as kids and it’s the only thing I actually asked for when she died. So currently it’s still sat in the hallway.
Mum did a bit of ringing around this afternoon though, finding out how much it costs to ship stuff over to the States. Too much, seems to be the response. Most firms wanted between 3-4 hundred quid to ship something like that over! My bureau isn’t exactly worth anything, just sentimental so those prices are somewhat ridiculous.
Also, got to consider the fact that Bill’ll probably have some sort of opinion on it and where would we put it in the States if it did come over?
Anyhow decision has been delayed for a bit in case a bright idea explodes onto the horizon.
