I needed to get the log basket from the loft. Eventually, in the afternoon, I finally got round to doing it. I opened the loft up, and decided I'd put up some other stuff while I was at it. Stuff that's been sitting in a neat stack on the landing for some weeks now.
The items were shoved one by one, through the loft hatch, and then I followed.
First item, a travelling bag for Thermy, never used. That can go down the end of the loft, where we keep all the appliance boxes. A but of limboing (we have low beams), and it was neatly in place. A box of lids for the ReallyUsefulBoxes. Packed into a corner. A crate of bottles and jars, stacked with the others. The runners for an Ikea drawer (which was put in the loft a while ago), reunited.
Pleased with my efforts, I came down and packed the ladder away.
Later that evening, I felt chilly. Maybe I'd light a fire? I need the.......dammit.
