Many years ago, probably about 1980, my mum gave me this lovely little perpetual calendar, one on which you manually change the date each day. It has sat in various places in our kitchen but since the repairs last year (who was it flooded the kitchen I wonder??) it sits in pride of place on the microwave. No, our microwave isn't mauve, that was the backing to take the picture!!
When granddaughter #2 Aimee came here as a child she loved to change the date without me knowing and it became a real game between the two of us. I have a little note attached to the bottom of the calendar saying when I am gone I want Aimee to have it as a remembrance of the wonderful times we had when she and her siblings were young. They used to spend so much time at our home and we have such happy memories of those times.
