Three recycling bags, two bin bags and half a plastic recycling bag later I've finally started to beat the 'heap' from the office move (only 18 months ago) into shape. It's becoming a cross between Christmas, time team and one of those dire 'how clean is your house programs'. Finally however the floor and back wall have both been sighted!

I spent today alternating between 'wow I didn't know I had that still', 'what the .. is that bag of spares from' and 'why did I feel the need to pack away a box of small squares of spare wood'

Expect more in the for sale and freebies section soon !

Feels like a weekend well spent though

I passed my assessment today to be a Commercial Guard with South West Trains! Hopefully will have my interview before Christmas. So I'm rather happy at the moment!

Congratulations and good luck with the interview. We do things the other way around up north with the interview being the start of the process followed by the assessment.
I started my railway career as a conductor/guard 18 years ago and getting on the railway was one of the best decisions I've ever made.
