Maybe NOT Snowshill Manor at Kilsby !

Following on from my last blog about Snowshill Manor, I’ve had a discussion with Mo and she’s not too keen on the idea of moving into the garden sheds.  I am now having second thoughts about collecting even more clutter at our house.    Maybe George and Walt are right after all.     Better to chuck it rather than keep it.

Mr Charles Paget Ward at Snowshill Manor was on a mission to preserve things for posterity, but that is not my mission.    I might do it if I thought that by  accumulating lots of clutter, that one day it all might turn into valuable antiques.     Then perhaps I could consider it an investment, but looking at the things we have that are over 50 years old  and are still worth nothing, I am not so sure it is a very good bet.    Besides, what will I do with all that money unless I live until I am 150.

Although my odd sock collection is very unique and if ties come back into fashion I will also be well placed.

Nope.      Chuck it sounds like a better option.

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.

    rest assured: Maybe your career helping the older generation has been reward. We may only survive for an infinite period of time, and then pass on with a smile and greatful children and younger family members: You have the OBE ”Other buggers Efforts”- translate the eforts are eternal thanks, maybe a passing of time and we are not able to realise the full extent of our thanks, but we are and having a good time enjoying our ‘golden years’ While it is mine and maybe theirs epitaph, it must be laid to your vision, and thanks for making a difference in this world for the older generation. Dear John Thank you.
