I tried very hard to re home my sofa. But it was so huge I literally couldn't give it away. So today I phoned the council to get it uplifted at a cost of £24.40. But it was so big 3 of us couldn't lift it, never mind carry it 1/4 of a mile to the road!! (my bin lorry doesn't come to the house, another disadvantage of rural living)
So, armed with a saw, bolt cutters, Stanley knife and 2 large screwdrivers me and my mum cut it in half!
It took us 2 hours
But in the end we had 2 halves that were transportable to the top of the drive albeit knackering work!!
Emma photobombing as usual!!
I do feel relieved that it's been dealt with but I feel guilty that it's going to landfill :-( Hopefully some of it will be recycled as they can see the wood and metal more easily.
On a more positive note the Salvation Army are going to collect 3 wardrobes and 3 chests of drawers. With most of my excess furniture now dealt with I can crack on with the packing.
Only 6 more sleeps to go!!!!
