I must say I had a wonderful day cleaning out cupboards and drawers which took way longer than it should of as I kept stopping, reading, reminiscing and occasionally shedding a tear. But mostly it was a day full of wonderful memories. This little vest was my first discovery. I remember making it for Shannon whilst I was working in Cairns for two weeks...and amazingly I found this photo of her wearing it. This photo was taken on the occasion of their baptism.
Then I uncovered my dad's "Motorist's Record Book". Dad would write in this book every time...and I mean every time..he bought petrol. It seems to begin in about 1982 when petrol was 40c a litre and I think this coincided with the purchase of the Holden Commodore.
Speaking about Dad, I came across this card Shannon had made for grandad..absolutely priceless find:
That's it..Time to put the stuff away and get on with the cleaning.
