Check out the Udu Drum!
You know when you’re interested in buying a house and you go to view it for the third time and you ask things like;
“Is anything being left? The curtains etc?”
“Will it be getting cleaned before we move in?”
“What’s in the loft?”
That last one, I have come to learn, is very important. This is the second time this has happened. The first time wasn’t such a big deal because that house was rented and all the crap that was abandoned in that loft was not and is not my problem.
This time round this is our house and it is our problem.
We’ve lived here since November 2015 and I still haven’t made it in to our loft. I’ve tried, believe me I’ve tried.
I’m not scared or anything like that, I just physically cannot get in to the loft. The hatch is tiny and the ladders are not to be trusted. I don’t have the upper body strength to pull myself up…
There is an upside to this though. It means that Chris gets the wonderful job of sorting through the mounds of crap that belong to other people and I get to wang them down the stairs and make a mess!
Anyway, back to my original point.
When the estate agent tells you that the seller has said there is nothing in the loft, then you hot foot it up in to that loft and check for yourself.
We were told that there was just a couple of boxes up there… there wasn’t just a couple of boxes.
There was about 12,000 boxes, heaps of polystyrene, TV stands, more boxes and strangely enough there was a bag of screen-wash and other car paraphernalia.
The we have the really bizarre finds…we came across some quite disturbing artwork and what I believe is an African Udu Drum. I’m not quite sure what to do with these items. I don’t want to throw them away. The paintings are pretty good, the subject matter is just slightly off.
So if you’re in to weird art or know someone who might be interested in an African drum just let me know 🙂
Don’t ever let anyone make you think you’re not good enough.
Follow your dreams right now! Don’t wait until tomorrow,
next week, next year. Stop planning, start doing 🙂
Be happy and keep smiling 🙂
