Day 19 - What Do You Collect?

Nothing specific - yet if you saw my house, or my room at Mum & Dad's you would think you were in a crowded museum!

I suppose, to be truthful, I like souveneirs - memories of people and places. I love looking at the things around me, and being reminded of good days (or bad) ... the story of my life surrounds me.

I also have things from the family - some wine glasses from my great Grandfather's pub, my grandfathers medals, pictures from my grandparents houses, a broach that my Grandfather bought his mother when he went to war in 1915, etc.

The thing you will see a lot of is giraffes. I have always loved them, and friends who know that have never been short of a present idea. My smallest is in Venetian glass (that I bought on The Rialto Bridge, Venice) and is 2" tall ... my tallest is Portious ... that my friend Toni bought me the Christmas after Jaykub died -

Not a great picture, as I should have knelt down ... but you get the idea.

Just Catching Up ... And Discovering My City

I haven't had any shifts this week - which is not great, but thankfully unusual to have lost a few days like this. I have been a good girl though and have been busy ...

  • I have cleaned the house - hoovered and dusted, cleaned the kitchen as well.

  • I have worked out which bus I need to get to the city centre.  Silly but I have tended to use the car, but thought as I had time I would explore ... and the return ticket was cheaper than the car-park price ... so that's even better.

  • Done some baking ... having done a big shop at the supermarket (filled the freezer).

  • Got extra washing done - sheets etc .... so good to be here to get the washing in when it started to rain.

  • Yesterday on my bus trip I spotted a ruined Chapel - so walked there today ...

So, as you can see I have managed to keep myself out of mischief!

Hope all is well with you all.
