Ashes to Ashes
My sister called me today. She's been moving into a new house and making frequent calls to me to discuss the challenges of combining two households of stuff into one. It's been a challenging undertaking for her as she's also been letting go of lots of bagga...

Memories of 2016
This year I didn't get Christmas cards sent out and I've never been one to write and mail out Christmas letters. I've also severely neglected blogging this year, not because I've had nothing to write about, just because I spent the year enjoying life and tr...
