Ummm....out of sight out of heart? Sorry I haven't been around lately, but my aunt died and during her sickness I travelled up and down from my place to hers (3 hour drive) to take care of things and now I have to administer her estate wich is a hell of a job.
Her house was build in 1930 and furnished in 1930 and can you imagine that it never changed since then??? And that she never threw out any piece of paper since then??? I found her whole life wrapped up in pieces of paper, letters, photographs and lots more. I find school books from her mother or mother's family, dated 1831. Food stamps from WW2, it's amazing and fascinating and emotional.
It will take a long time before all is sorted and devided between the eleven inheritors. And the only one who's making trouble is my own sister, damn that girl.
Ok, that's it, that's why you haven't seen me around and will not see me for a long time ahead I guess (sigh).
Like scattered leaves...my words will flow
I may have missed your birthday Titia, but never do I forget the special person you are. Though these wishes are late, I hope your birthday was a joyful day, filled with love, sweet memories, and celebration.
I have had a similar experience going through all my Aunt's things and some of the things found are incredible aren't they. I had to take a few to find out what they even were, and get this, one was a hook for doing up shoe buttons. So fancy too!
Hope you had a wonderful birthday, and hope Muys is in good health too.
Happy Birthday, Titia - and I hope you experience some nostalgic smiles from this adventure with your aunt's estate. No doubt she'll be dearly missed. Meanwhile - Please have a very grand birthday for yourself...
