Cary Grant - Embarrassed for you
Yes, I've been missing again!

I popped in to do my Seasonal Spuffy, but other than that have been missing.

Tomorrow I am meeting Tim at Mum & Dad's to do a (probable) final sort.  We have a finalisation date for late June, and what we have decided to see if we can do is a Charity House Clearance.  So they empty the house, clean, and tidy ... and sell whatever they can.  If their hours are more than their sales, we pay, if not we make a donation if we want.  I really had a lump in my throat when I heard the news, although I had known it had been sold for ages.

I didn't work yesterday (photos to follow), but have made a concerted effort to sort out my study, as there will be more kitchen stuff coming, and I need to have somewhere to sort the boxes while I am unpacking.

So, no Photo Friday, no time for a read through of my f-list (I am so, so sorry) ... but I do have some photos to share.

Sorry - I will be better soon, I promise.

I hope the (probable) final sort goes well. It's hard letting go of a family home. The mister's mum is moving into assisted living and is putting the house she's lived in for over sixty years on the market. We're going up to help sort what goes with her and what goes into a living estate sale next month.

Oh we still have more to do, but getting there. Thank you , it certainly seems hard to say that final goodbye to "Mum & Dad", even though I know it is coming.

Mum was always a hoarder and everything moved from house to house anyway.

I hope things go well with her move. Dad is now in a home, and once the house is sold it will be invested to pay for his ongoing care.

No apologies needed.

Thank you - I do hate going missing though.

I like the idea of a charity house clearance, and I understand what a wrench selling the house must be so ((hugs))

Thank you Debs, it certainly seems hard to say that final goodbye to "Mum & Dad", even though I know it is coming.

Didn't hear about a Charity House Clearance before (not sure that's done here in Germany). Sounds like a good solution for you; the house will be empty then and cleaned too.

There are a lot of house clearance firms, so it is good to be able to use a Charity - this one is Hospice Care.
