Well, these ones I've been packing today are little enough but then go into BIG boxes for extra protection. Some friends up the valley offered us some plastic packing boxes they had used (had no further used for them) so they dropped them round today. I will have to take them a cake as a thank you as they are going to be very useful. This morning, after going to Abergwili for fruit and veg and more banana and apple boxes, I came back and went straight into the Junk Room of Doom and packed up 7 banana boxes of books. That went very quickly and I was pleased with myself.
Then I had to quickly go out to Maggie's stable to put a coat of paint on the dressing table which is for middle daughter G. I had left around the mirror - back in August, when it was hot! Today's stint in the stable wasn't anything like as comfortable.
Then it was back indoors and packing away my collection of Torquay pottery. I had already packed two smallish boxes, very carefully wrapped, but this was a bit more of an ask. It didn't look that much on the shelf, but then I remembered all the miniature ones on the little cupboard with shelves which has baking things like muffin cases, ginger and cinnamon, essences, glace cherries etc. Those took forever to wrap up and box - fortunately I had quite a few smallish boxes which suited their size perfectly. Two of those big plastic boxes are now filled with boxes of Torquay ware. Hopefully they will be doubly safe from breakage in there.
Time to go and unwind now and watch Strictly. I can see I shall have to make an early start on some more china tomorrow . . .
