The wheat from the chaff ………… and the chaff-like wheat

T Minus 29

So today I have been a man on a mission. For too long the garage has remained stubbornly full.20140724-133258-48778025.jpg
But not any more! Today we have gone through with ruthlessness. Separating the contents into three parts.

The Chaff

In the garden those things which are going to the dump. These are things we have tried (and failed) to sell or give away or else have escaped previous dumping trips.



The Wheat

In the conservatory the stuff we are taking to Africa or else we still need to go on holiday. Also the stuff we are definitely giving to Family (note to family: don’t panic there is not that much!).

On the deck is the stuff we’re giving away. We tried and failed to sell it and it needs to go to a charity shop. Mostly books, DVDs and bric-à-brac.



This leaves the garage fairly bare – though some “chaff-like wheat” will go in pro tem. In truth there is already some shifting around between categories but we’re being ruthless.

As for bigger stuff it’s possible our buyers new tenant might want to buy some furnishings from us we’ll have to wait and see.

Elsewhere we have informed the phone and car companies about our intentions to leave.




A good read for anyone wondering about the country which will soon be our home, from a tourist perspective.

Tanzania also features a stunning shoreline. This country is a must whether you are of the adventurous type or just want to indulge in leisurely activities.

Tanzania is a land of contrasts and magnificence, Africa at its most wild and undiscovered. There is the snow-capped summit of Mount Kilimanjaro and…
