Junk Weekend

Posted on Mon 03 September 2007 in general

In between a night in Knutsford, impromptu dinner party with cards and a visit from Lee last night I have been mostly going on trips to the dump.

As Fliss is moving in at the beginning of next month we thought it would be a good time to get junk cleared out of the house. The cellar now has new empty spaces although it's still not as clear as it could be. I dumped around 4 CRT's and 2 TV's in the special recycling bit of the dump before one of the tip workers came over. He told me they were instituting a one TV per family limit as they currently get around 200 TVs/Monitors a day and are running out of space. It was a little lazy to dump them but at least some recycling will take place and I suspect it would be hard to free cycle these bits. Having said that we found another 2 CRTs in need of recycling at the end of Sunday. I will make a concerted effort to FreeCycle the surplus VHS recorders and DVD players.

We re-watched Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Mel Brook's inspired Blazing Saddles on Sunday before a well deserved sleep. Fliss headed back to London this morning as I did my best impression of a zombie shuffling around.
