We were convinced, (as Granddad was such a control freak!) that he had left a list of instructions, outside of the will stuff… (You know, like what Funeral director, what to do with his collections, who needs to be informed) He had an organised folder with all the “important stuff” in it, which is all marked up with what to do with it, so we thought it would be in there… we went through it yesterday, and Bah! No such luck.
I’ve never seen so much junk paper in one place! We knew it was bad, but the man kept every scrap of anything! Old non-winning lotto tickets, All his Asda food Receipts, copies of the paper going back months, every single house insurance Docket from 1989, plus all in the envelopes they came in! It just goes on and on… Sheesh, no wonder his nose was so bad! All that dust!
So, that’s my job to sort out, according to Auntie Joan (Granddad’s Older sister). Auntie Joan said that if he had been alive she would have had a go at him for leaving so much paper behind! Apparently, when Great Aunt Vi died, it was exactly the same, and it took Auntie Joan and Granddad an entire week to sort that one out, so he should have known better! It’s going to take me an age! 🙁 *sigh*
