I spent an hour or so clearing rubbish from the garage. More lawn-treatment, more mouldy cardboard boxes, expanded polystyrene packaging, paintbrushes; dusters and cloths all coated with paint and dirt. One item that there was no room for in the bin was a chromium-plated three-shelf stand that used to live in the bathroom, and now stood against the left-hand wall of the garage. The middle and lower shelves of the stand had rusted through and collapsed, covering everything beneath with flakes of rust.
