Nine Days – Day Eight

Only a very short post today, but with a couple of big questions in it. Shall we go to the local tip? Shall we hire a skip (for the North American reader, a dumpster)? A time for keeping and a time for throwing away! The old sewing box contains almost everything but the proverbial kitchen sink…


My Mother’s Book of Hours: Novena


Look, love! Is it time to haul the whole lot to the city tip?

Nothing in the box will mend/amend the mess we’ve made!

Long-cherished rubbish here would fill a skip.
