For some reason desk drawers have some of the most evocative detritus in a home. I hope that my descendants will be as astonished and amused by what they find as I have been, going through my mother's and grandmother's old desks. We all need stories about our people- it's what keeps the memory alive, when the people are long gone, whether lamented or not.

We have bought many quirky items for the kids from the Hawkins catalogue. Glad such companies exist to cater for our silliness.


I have my late grandmother's old treadle sewing machine, the drawers still full of her old buttons, zippers and a few spools of thread.Its been that way for the 26 years since she has been gone with me rooting through it every now and then savoring sweet memories.
But I also have many junk drawers that need attention. I have jotted down the book title and will clean a drawer to start anew.
I loved hearing George's story!
