Operation: Gamesroom, Day One...
Fear not, gentle readers, I have no intention of boring you with daily updates of our progress in clearing out/up the gamesroom.
I just wanted to say that the first day went very well, possibly better than I was expecting. I was largely sorting out comics to keep and comics to send off to charity.
Rachel has been doing the heavy-lifting, with assistance from Alice.
It's enormously satisfying to think that these comics (and books and other bits and bobs) will eventually find their way onto the shelves of charity shops in town (or may even get distributed around the south of England, depending on how the individual charities operate), and might then catch the eye of some proto-geeky youngster, sparking a lifelong love of comics, superheroes etc
Today I think I managed to sort through all the comics that were up here (I'd always thought I was a Marvel zombie, but it turns out out I have way more DC titles - particularly Batman - than I imagined!).
The comics that are staying will get stored higgledy-piggledy back on the shelves for the moment, so they are out of the way. The plan is that once we have finished Operation: Gamesoom, I'll then take everything back off the shelves and file them in some sort of order!
Meanwhile, tomorrow we begin on everything else!
