This is a question Starting something you couldn't finish

Finnbar says: I used to know a guy who tattooed LOVE across his left knuckles, but didn't tattoo HATE on the other knuckles because he was right-handed and realised he couldn't finish. Ever run out of skills or inspiration halfway through a job?

My attic
I have lived in my house for over 4 years but I have only been in my attic once, and that was when I first moved in. I have never liked attics and I hate those folding aluminium ladders that make that nails-down-a-blackboard guillotine sound and do their best to take your head off when you open the hatch.

I know there is stuff up there that needs to be cleared, and I think squirrels have got in and they need to be gassed (or charged rent) but I just can’t face it. When I went up there 4 years ago I had the intention or removing anything left by the previous owners, but the light bulb woke up a swarm of flies and what with the spooky old toys it all got a bit too Amityville horror for my liking so I left it for another day.

I was considering having another go this weekend. Perhaps I should take my camera and do my own “Most Haunted”. Can I borrow someone’s spirit guide?

Don't do it this weekend.
Attics get very hot in the summer, so if it had flies before, it'll likely as not have a swarm of them now. Plus working up there will be really uncomfortable.

And, anyway: wouldn't it be nicer to be outside?

Leave it until a rainy Sunday in October.

You're a wise man Enzyme
i'll leave it for now (or another 4 years)

Cleverly, I didn't specify the year in which this rainy Sunday ought to be.

I surely don't know what you mean ;)

When buying a new house, you must put a box in the attic that is not opened until you move again
and even then it must only be opened to go "Oo! Look! There's those things that we have!", and then closed again.

It's the LAW.

It's going to be a cracking weekend weather wise
Get some mates round, have a barby and a few sherberts.

Never mind the attic.

Awww....it's nice that you assume I have mates

Can you wait till next month?
I'll have moved out by then.
