Cannot believe it is almost September! I love this selection nature/bird/outdoor boxes – hope you do too!
Can’t quite believe it is five years since one of my boxes was added to the collection in the Belfast War Memorial Museum. It was to mark the 70th anniversary of the Belfast Blitz (now 75 years ago). You can see it in the foreground of this picture and it was to be used to take to school talks to show some items which were relevant to children in WW2 for example a little suitcase with identity tag used by evacuees. I was very honoured to have this chance to remember those affected by WW2 in my home town.
I revisited the Museum during Belfast’s Heritage night in September and it was lovely to see some Lindy Hop dancing and a singalong to ‘Songs from the Air Raid Shelter’. An amazing place. I do have a ‘thing’ about WW2 and my favourite books are by Nella Last who was the lady who wrote the diaries called ‘Housewife, 49’ which Victoria Wood turned into a fantastic tv drama.
Am afraid this little lady has gone to her new home!!
Ready, steady, Go!
