I'm neither an early bird nor a night owl, but this week I've been getting up early and I'm really seeing the benefit of it. It's just turned 8am and I've achieved so much, it's obvious but amazing!
In unrelated news some of you may know that we've been helping Dan's Mum to clear out his Grandmother's house as she has moved. I have been offered almost all of the remaining craft items, most of which I haven't even looked at yet, but at the weekend I decided to look through the button jar as I was after something for my embroidery doodle. I found this tucked away under the buttons and beads.
It's a Royal Artillery patch.
That side of Dan's family never talk about the war so neither of us knew what roles people had so I asked Dan to ask his Mum if this badge may have belonged to his Granddad, and it did. As you can imagine it's a huge relief that I found it in the jar and didn't just donate it to the charity shop without having a look at everything first. It will be my pleasure to pass it back to my MIL the next time I see her.
