My mother gave me a cook book on April 1st, 1966, to recognise that I had passed mu nursing exams. It was a wonderful book but I no longer use it and it does look like it is 60 years old with yellowing brittle pages and recipes in old measuring system.
Some books I cannot part with, but I have taken one pile to the local op shop. They were great books but I (a) don't have room for them and (b) unlikely to read them again. In fact I have saved quite a few that I want to read again, or can't recall ever reading.
I won't say it is easy. It isn't but I don't want my family to have to chuck them out at some time in the future.
Moving into the van has also created some challenges for me. I didn't know that I had to lie down and crawl a little way under the van to reach the emptying pipe for the toilet. It is not going to happen. I have been to Roller's favourite shop BCF, and checked out other options. I am meeting with a guy who will help me make a decision and/or hopefully do the necessary work.
I still have to buy another Roller Sticker and flag. And practice more in the van. You can read more here.
