Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “container.” Use the word “container” any way you’d like. Or think about a container of some kind and write about it. Enjoy!
Thanks Linda! Full details of the prompt can be found here
Memories of our house move in 2014 immediately come to mind.
Readers of that time may well remember the nightmare sale and our buyers leaving us completely in the dark as regards completion on the sale of their own property, then expecting us to pack up, store everything and move out in less than a week with nowhere to go!
Anyway, in line with Linda’s prompt, as things turned out, we pulled a blinder and were able to find storage and move our stuff there within a week.
In a twenty foot shipping container.
You’ve heard of downsizing haven’t you? Well, that’s what we did, and everything we kept, including my Peugeot 206 car, was stored in a shipping container for about three months.
Then we bought the boat.
Compared to our house, this was not much bigger than a tupperware container, and 99% of what we’d kept was given away.
Even that was too much to fit in, so 99% of that was also given away, including the containers containing our stuff.
I often say that we actually downsized to a thimble.
