Hi all we haven't had any kids so have not had to put up with the horrors of things under beds, or tidy up, hats off to you all for being brave enough to tackle, the unknown, hope there's not too many tantrums when they find out what has happened.

Boy was she mad when she came home. However the room is currently in just as bad a mess as it ever was :( BUT shes due to go to camp in Aug so guess what I'm planning

I fear there will be too!!!!
He hasn't played with them for at least a yar and he's into Greenday etc now--but they're only in the attic -- so he can get them if he really must---as for the rest of the stuff, doubt he even knows what he's got!!! I hope !!!

The boy is at camp so me in my wisdom decides to gut his bedroom!!!
8 hours later....
3 black sacks full to the brim with rubbish...
2 boxes of power rangers and a sack of dragons in the attic...
10 Black sacks full to the brim of assorted cloths, toys and books..
I can now see the colour of his carpet!!
And the bloomin cupboards ae still full of stuff---but tidy stuff!!!!
