This week I am reminiscing ...... I was looking for something ...... you know how it goes ..... in a box I found several items which brought back lots of memories .....
Here is the infamous desk and I am smiling to myself.
I'll tell you why if you want to stick around to find out ..... on second thoughts you better grab a cup of something and find an easy seat!!!
There's a map of Southern France and the Alps. I sat looking for the Tunnels (du Chat, Monte Bianco, Frejus) through which PJ and I crossed into Italy (he used to make this trip every week).
Here is an interesting leaflet I found in the Chapel in East Midlands Airport as wewere passing through to go to Lago di Garda with GDTK. The leaflet suggests how to spend five minutes with God.
Just underneath all that is a serviette from a restaurant on Malta. That particular meal was taken with our friends, after spending a great morning walking round Marsaxlokk. This is a small harbour in the south of the island and is famous for its seafood restaurants.
The business card is leftover from our Paris trip, we called into this Bistro to get out of the rain - Rylan Clarke look alike works there. :-)
A miraculous medal, still on its original string. As children we were all given these medals, to keep us safe and help us pray. The wording round the edge reads - O Mary conceived without sin pray for us who have recourse to thee - and the words were repeated often! Then I became 'born again' and, in finding Jesus, didn't need Mary to pray for me as I found out I could speak straight to Jesus myself..... and He hears....
A keyring from Gibraltar.
We had a holiday in Spain and managed a daytrip into Gibraltar. I had so wanted to go there as my Father was stationed there for several years during which time my Brother was born.
My mother used to speed round the island in an open topped car and this is where she developed her love of speed.
Such happy memories from her and for me!!!
Another list!!!! lol
This time it is for a trip to Africa and was attached to the flyer. We used to go to Nigeria every year, and at the same time - according to my list - I was learning Shorthand at Evening Class and preparing for an Executive Skills exam. May I say that I was in fulltime employment back in the day .... must have had a lot (lot) more energy then!!! lol
More happy memories and a chance to have a good prayer session for the people there.
I found my 'button' diecuts!!! I bought the die to make some 'buttons' for an ATC swap, but then lost the diecuts!!!
Talking about ATCs, there happens to be some gold papers and oriental images/papers .... sorted ready for another swap .... betcha can't guess what themes!!!!!
The stories behind my desk this week ..... hope you found them interesting.
I am out today checking out Chicken Houses with PJ and Little Soldier, sounds like a fun day ..... hhmm .... we'll see ......

Have a good week, stay safe and happy.
