As a follow on from my previous post, I asked Patrick to take the bags which were at the bottom of the stairs to the charity shop today.
I spoke to him on the phone later and since he was out and about at that point in time, checked whether he had taken the bags to the shop and not included the sleeping bag which was also beside the clothes bags.
No, he said, he had just taken the 2 black bags to Marie Curie at the top of the road.
I then quickly telephoned Marie Curie to apologise for my boyfirend handing in 2 large black bags of rubbish.
They were remarkably relaxed about this and had thankfully not started to open them up to see the contents. Jolene circa 1996 etc ....
