    Default some nice family news for a change

    As a lot of you know my BIL split up from his 3rd wife not so long ago.
    For the first time in YEARS, we will be having a family party/brunch on Feb 21st for my parents in law. This was unthinkable with 3rd ex-wife in the picture (apart from the fact that not many people got on with her - she always managed to make these kinds of things about HER MAJESTY - or made a scene).

    It will be my MIL's birthday (81) on the 13th and because the only gift that she ever wants is to have her family around her and everyone getting along - that is what she is getting (as well as some small personal gifts too).
    We are all aware that this is possibly the last time that anything like this will happen since my fil's health is failing rapidly but he LOVES getting together with his kids and grandkids.

    We are all really looking forward to this.

    I hope it goes well for you. You deserve it.
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Use it up, Wear it out,
    Make it do, Or do without. ~unknown

    Because we, the people, have the power to build a better future. KH
