Hey there, Sparklers 🙂
So, in the last twenty minutes or so, something happened which left me thinking “I just HAVE to blog about this!” so I am.
Long story short, after buying a lot of new things for our home, we ended up with a LOT of cardboard boxes and junk we just didn’t want or need anymore that wasn’t worth passing on to other people, so we hired a skip.
We decided to start filling it straight away, starting with emptying our indoor shed as it is literally full to the ceiling with cardboard boxes of all sizes.
My mum stayed upstairs keeping an eye on Alexa for me whilst my dad and I made a few trips down to the skip.
Now, we live in a cul-de-sac (or a square, as we call it) and our flat is hidden away from the street lights so it’s pitch black outside.
We were doing quite well when we were taking all the general rubbish down. Then it came to the cardboard. I decided, to make things a whole lot easier, that I’d take our biggest cardboard box and fill it with other cardboard boxes and bits of paper until it was full to the brim and quite heavy. I was proud of myself, because I’d thought of something that meant making less trips to and from the skip, which was placed on the grass outside of the cul-de-sac. I’m a genius, right?
WRONG. The first problem was that the box was too big to fit through the front door. So, my dad and I performed a full on “to me, to you” scene from Chuckle Vision just to get it through. That in itself was quite funny to me.
Still baring in mind it’s pitch black outside, my neighbours cat shot past our garden gate just as I was about to squeeze through and frightened the living daylights out of me. All I saw was a black mass shoot past me. It could have been a ghost for all I knew.
It scared me so much that I screamed and dropped everything, which in turn scared my dad so he jumped and dropped everything too.
There we were, stood in a sea of cardboard boxes, bent over with shock, laughing at each other until we were nearly wetting ourselves.
That was when I decided we should be the next generation Chuckle Brothers. We’d pretty much become them without realising, and I haven’t laughed that much in a long time.
I hope you enjoyed reading this little post and I’ll see you soon! 🙂
Lots of love,
