Anyway the point of this post is to tell you that we have gradual made some space in the penthouse. When we first moved here on one of our regular trips to the recycling centre with more useless items we'd brought from Scotland, we spoke to a resident who had gone through the same process, big house to small apartment. She said it would take us at least 2 years to get sorted and rid ourselves of all our unnecessary items. On the basis that we moved in 18 months ago and spent almost 6 months in Italy we aren't doing so bad.
Look at this for shelf space in the office, clear shelf space.
And I am delighted to have such a grown up arrangement of crockery in the kitchen.
Mr FF has spent much of the weekend working in the loft, you know how he likes to wire everything so that the telly gets foreign stations and the whole place is networked, I don't know what that means but I know he'll be happier when its done.
One good reason for this extra activity is that the Vikings are coming, our friends from Copenhagen arrive on Friday to stay with us for almost a week. I am tempted to get out to sweep the moor and polish the streets of Ilkley having told them how wonderful it all is but maybe they'll be so impressed with the state of my cupboards and the wiring that will be enough. I've got the glasses ready too.
