So what have you got kept up in your attic then? Just be very careful before you clear it out. Some people have found all sort of things some of them of value.

As I started this one I had better add my two pence worth . My loft was cleared out a few years ago so there's not much up there now but I do know the wife's wedding dress is still there in its original box. She did not let me throw it away when we last had a clearout. There is also some of the things they gave me when I was discharged from hospital some years ago. A sort of spinal support jacket and a portable raised toilet seat. Yes I know I should have sent the seat back once I no longer needed it. One of those things I never got round to anyway is that not what a attic is for? With people complaining that modern homes don't have enough storage space you would think all attics would have lighting and a better access.

A while back when I was going through some of my stuff from the Chelsea days, I found a rolled up 'pastel' that I had bought off Sandy Goudie. He was holidaying in the same part of Brittany as my family and was short of cash. I believe I paid the equivalent of a case of calvados.

Unfortunately, there are finger marks on it, so it has little value.

I will keep it for the memories as it's subject is a well known local sailor, who was permanently pissed, a great 'boule' player and wonderful story teller.
