So glad to hear that you are getting sorted. Cheeky woodworm guy😂. Hope you don't need new carpet as well. Make sure you get a guaranteed certificate, you don't want to go through this all over in a few years time, but you probably know that sorry.

We have a 20yr warranty for the work done. We don't need to replace any carpets though hubby Steve has decided to lift the carpet in the hall and replace with laminate. it gets a lot of traffic in the house.

the kitchen floor joists are replaced and tomorrow the lino will go back down, then I can clean all the dust and muck off. Steve will then move onto the dining room followed by the hall and lounge.

During the lockdown, what is the oldest thing that you have found in your larder/food cupboard? I have found some 2014 cat biscuits. The cat died 9 1/2 years ago, so I must have bought these to see if the hedgehogs that used to visit would like them. Dh gets fads on breakfast cereals and there were 2 part bags of porridge oats 2014 and 2018. Conversely, today I found the remains of a current one in the bin because it is too watery!

I've also found some really old prescription meds. I thought that I regularly went through checking dates!

A carton of UHT milk best before 2011, we still used it and it tasted fine and we woke up next morning haha. 2 2014 packets of pasta in sauce sachets. didn't try them as not keen when they were in date. Tin of spam that doesnt seem to have a date on it. Hubby has put it back as "it may come in useful and after all that's what tinning was all about".

have you been through the wardrobe and found clothes where you thought "when did I last wear that?" I'm not counting my wedding dresses though I did wear it on our 10th anniversary as a sarky hint that he had forgotten about it. His response." but darling every day married to you is special" mmmmh. I have a skirt that still fits but I've not worn it since 2012 when I went for an interview. Too good to send to charity shop but wont be attending any more interviews now nor do can I think where it would be suitable to wear.

Out of Date and WAY in the back of the cupboard?!!

Well, 2 boxes of Knorr stock cubes - 2013; 3 jars of Mustard - 2014; 2 tins of peeled tomatoes - 2014; 4 various jars of spices - 2011 - 2014 - and the rest I can't remember (we did it 3 weeks ago!).

I've been through my wardrobe - and my husband's - and put them in a Sally Army bag for "later" - 5 pairs of shoes that never, ever fitted - 2013-2015. 2 jackets - our of fashion since 2010!!!!!!; 1 coat - shamefully it will NEVER fit again! -2013; 3 sweatshirts- not worn since 2014 - too small - and don't like anymore either. Fancy "glittery" jumper - 2009!!! Definitely Mutton dressed as lamb now!

Hubby - 4 shirts - hasn't wear since he retired - 1997??????????????. Smart jacket - same reason and to small even for a funeral!!!! 7 pairs of socks - he hates them - 2015.

I could go on but it will get boring.
