Tidy Bears Open Box 1

Today the Tidy Bears have started to de-clutter the first of the many boxes around the house.    They can safely start with the blue box in the main bedroom because it is full of John’s stuff.   It is the box MO used to use to clear all the things John used to leave lying around the bedroom for days making the place look untidy.   John didn’t even notice they were gone !


So led by Big Ted, five of the bears lifted the lid to see what treasures the box contained :-

  • Patch was first in — “I found lots of books that John bought, glanced at, thought about, put down and then never got around to reading.   I think John ought to stop buying more books until he makes time to read them.    For the moment we will put them in the study, alongside the other books he hasn’t read😀”
  • Pyjama Bear  reached in the blue box and said —- ” I found some CD’s, still in their cellophane wrappers.   So that is another thing John has purchased and then not used.    Maybe John should stop buying CD’s if he is not going to listen to them.”
  • Little Ted discovered some real treasure —- “I saw a notebook at the bottom of the box.  It was Grandpa Graham’s notes of a training course he attended in 1940, when he was in the Royal Engineers.  He not only knew how to build them, he could also blow them up!”
  • Finally, Peter Rabbit took out a folder of old newspaper cuttings —- “These are all dated 2013 and John must have intended to write a blog about them.  He must have overlooked them, but it doesn’t matter because not a lot has changed, so he can still write about them now.  There is also a 2013 report on Ageing which  nobody else has done anything about.”

So now we can empty the box and leave it to fill up again in the next four years 😈.

There will be a copy of Walt Hopkins and George Simons’ book — “Seven Ways to Lighten Your Life Before You Kick the Bucket” — for the best ideas on de-cluttering.

    I note the teddies comments with respect, as to what they each individually found: However I am more drawn to the ”hidden” comments, by John.
    I note the box is to be emptied [I hope not of Grandpa graham’s time in the Royal Engineers], every 4 years, or is it not until the next anniversary of a 4 year period? Here I am up to mischief with Tedd’s permission, is the grand old duke John Graham, only reviewing his life style and personal mutterings every 4 years by calender’s terms or every ”General Election” where a lot of eye wash, and hogwash is given, and too be believed?
    An old sage like John, must have among all his cuttings lots of fallen promises and dreams, by the past and present politicians!!
    We enter the next/this phase of local and a general election, voting may be for the heart and home, and there again for the country, and the next 50 years+ of what UKplc, may become, or could become with ‘BRITEX’!!!
    This was the original rational for the call of a or this general election? All this high minded ideals is now mired by what and if the oldies in the UKplc, should have? For instant comfort?? What happens to the OAP’s and oldies if the UKplc, votes for or against ‘BRITEX’??? I trust as we approach polling days, in both the local and general elections-that things may become clearer? Not a fog or mist where one feels one way through the haze? I am now looking not for a ma-shire: but a credible leader with honesty. .
