Day 61

After a lovely sleep in, the strangest thing happened this morning. I was fiddling with the short multi-coloured scarf I finished knitting, thinking that I might be able to turn it into a slipper. I sat with it wrapped around my foot, folding and scrunching and pulling at it until it somewhat resembled footwear. I was getting so close to turning it into something, I had to get the safety pins to hold it together.

I went to the little sowing kit we keep in an old box of chocolates. I pushed a few things aside and didn’t find the safety pins BUT I did find my locket and wedding ring! I wasn’t expecting them to be in there, especially because I thought I’d looked in there when I first lost them. They weren’t lost after all, they were just at the other side of the room.

I’m so glad I found the locket in time for this weeks Let’s Do 52 – 52 Week Photo Challenge picture. I had to capture something ‘old’, this locket is definitely old and laced with history and memories. The picture itself isn’t very creative or interesting but the locket is so amazing I don’t think that matters.

My mum bought this locket sometime in the 70s. She placed a picture of herself in the locket and a lock of her hair and gave it to her mum (my grandma.) The locket returned to me after my mum and my grandma had passed away, which is why it’s so important to me. It’s a heartfelt reminder of the two most amazing women that made my life brighter.

At the point of writing this, I haven’t done French lessons today but hopefully I can get that in after I post.

The new week is about to begin and there are lots of things on my to do list. The best way to get through a to do list, is with a great play list. I hope you enjoy the tunes.

I'm on a life changing journey to 40. There will be ups, there will be downs. I'm like a roller coaster but with more agoraphobia.
