Fifty seven large photo albums
(300 photos ea... at least) .
I figured it was time to make the family albums easier to find by writing on the spines of them the date and numerical order of such albums...
opening the cupboard door very carefully, because they have a tendency to topple out... (now why would that be the case?) I was bemused that the latest count is now 57.
It made me think of those families who are unfortunate to have the house burn down and the mum is there in a chenille dressing gown clutching a photo album with the edges charred thanking God and all the saints because, "we lost everything, apart from our lives, the clothes we are standing in and this album".
HM... some years back we were threatened by fire and I put them all into the wheelbarrow, ready for the van... just in case. I had it all figured...first Don, then the cat ( on his lap!!!) then back for the albums (we had no doggie then)... now it would fill two large or maybe three wheelbarrows...
I have this image of me pushing the last wheelbarrow out into the road my hair smoking and saying... "I saved them...saved them all" cough cough.
