Helping my dad to clear out the loft.
Moving up in the world then?!
I haven't been in my loft for years - to start with it's not too accessible, rather low for me to stand in and in any case I don't care for climbing ladders. To be honest, there's not much up there anyway. I was called "lofty" by a couple of friends in school, but usually that's reserved for short people, so I don't really have any affinity with lofty ideals!
The word "loft" looks/sounds absolutely ridiculous to me now
it was quite an experience-it's by no means tall enough even for me to stand up in, so my dad was having serious bother! There was all sorts up there, including what looks like every single issue of Q magazine from about 1975 to 2000 (2000 to present day are stored underneath my bed.....)
