As it’s G day (for Greece) minus 10, I’ve had to begin the process of packing up our belongings, sorting and getting rid of stuff we can’t keep. I’ve started at the top of the house, in the lovely attic room where I’ve had my sewing machine. I’ve managed to fill two bags so far, with sewing essentials, the sewing machine is in its box, and I’ve emptied the drawers where I kept more vital equipment such as scissors, buttons, zips, bits of cardboard to make patchwork templates, and fabric remnants galore.
Under the desk I came across a very special bag of items that I could never throw away. They contain some old school reports, school photos, workbooks and drawings done by my children, when they were aged 5 and upwards. So some of these things are between 25-35 years old! How can I have children that old, there must be some mistake….
