1 In order for the furniture restorer to work on the flood damaged desk, I had to empty out the top section very quickly into a box and have today been sorting through it all. I’ve discovered lots of long forgotten treasures, old letters, a Christmas list written by one of our daughters and some old toys…….
2 There’s a fabulous collection of dice of all sizes and in different materials. Most of the dice are ordinary 1-6 for board games but there are some others in sets of five with King, Queen, Jack, the Ace of Spades and the 9 of Clubs, Spades, Diamonds or Hearts. I wonder if anyone reading this knows what game they were for?
There are some card games including Lexicon and Main Line and there are some tiddlywinks – remember those anyone?
There are some small puzzles where the pieces had to be moved around to be in a particular order.
3 I remember this lovely Knitting Nancy! As a little girl I made yards and yards of ‘knitting’ with her and then sewed it into mats of all sizes, coaster size and dinner plate size that everyone was then given for Christmas.
