  1. When we cleared my grandfathers house we found a gun, and on a separate occasion a bottle of cyanide, we kept the local police station properly entertained!

  3. My friend found a skeleton and panicked about it properly, until she showed it to her husband who rummaged in the box and went, “Yes, look, here’s the receipt… it’s a med student’s anatomical skeleton!” She still has it in the loft, and calls it Norm.
    God knows what’s in our loft; our attic is full of everything and nothing. Good luck with the rest of the clearance. Don’t forget to chuck any circa 1940’s baubles covered with artificial snow; apparently it used to be asbestos. Or did your site tell me that?

  5. When the ex left me on my silver wedding day I later discovered he had cleared the loft of much loved items of mine…..

  6. When we first moved here 30 years ago, my husband found a locked metal box in the ceiling of the cellar. We were so excited as to the riches within.
    All that was in the locked box was some old porn from the 50s.

  7. Ok, I know this is totally a cultural thing (I am living in Texas, if that means anything ;-),but my husband and I would have found that WW1 gun the most exciting thing! Of course I would not have the fear of being found out by the police or anything! In fact I have an FBI friend who would totally check it out for us and see if it still works, just for fun!
    Alison, you should never fear an inanimate object. Only fear who is holding it. Guns, along with knives, even cars, should be treated with a healthy respect. By themselves they can’t hurt, just only when someone who doesn’t respect them, can they hurt or kill.
    Now, where I am hopping mad is, is that he did not ask your permission! !!!!! Blatantly abusing your trust like that just burns me!!!!
    Want me to shoot him for ya? I am mean dead eye! 😉
