Babaa the elephant, looking sadly as though he is about to jump into the sink!! Given him a wash, after being packed away for nearly 30 years, was going to give him away... changed my mind now, no thrift shop would ever give him the love... So, its back in the trunk Babaa...

Today at work, a worker bee was stuck in doors! So I caught him gently and released him out into... gale force winds!! Poor thing, but better out than in!! Maybe?

So windy today here, the mail box was tapping constantly and Pippa was getting too anxious! Meanwhile I was sorting through papers, shredding them, keeping important bits, the rest going going gone!

Books tidied and sorted out, a lot of my moms to decide upon, find a loving home for, maybe keep the special ones... Two of which I will, they are of more value to me than anyone else I think, both printed in the 1700's... Watching Poldark on catch up, set in the 1700's it really made me appreciate the two books all the more... Who were the people who read them? Names, professions, how were they dressed... My ancestors I know, but on moms mother's side or her father's side... Going to check out my ancestry tree, see who was who around 1740... Nearly three hundred years... 300... Whichever way I write it, its amazing to me...

I'll go through the other books in the week, more history... More decisions to make...

Another funny story! The other day Franco and I saw the post man's immanent arrival, and to distract Pippa, we started singing, loudly, I then went to get our post... Nothing there but him, still outside the door!! So on opening saw he was writing delivery notes!! He'd knocked, but our singing had not only stopped the Pippster from hearing him, but us also!! Doh!!!

Before I say cheerio for today... Briefly checked out and William Randall was born about 1717 and at 13 years guessing this wasn't his, need to find his father!! Only back to the early 1800's on mom's father's side... the hunt goes on!
