Such a meaningful picture thanks to the explanation from the artist, so very kind of her to allow it to be shared with our group Chookie.

Impressive Judy , you are very good on your sorting .
Itís in my genes K Atie, Mum was the same.
Chookie youíll get around to the converting into videos one day, maybe DS could help you in that regard.    Donít the consultants give you a home demo these days, is that because of Covid?  I think you might be receiving a few more phone calls from your friend LOL.

Yes photo collections end up being a big job for a lot of people.  Today has been an inside day, rain glorious rain has arrived for our gardens so Iíve spent 8 hours going through more recipe print outs and magazine cuttings after finding a whole heap of them in a cupboard in the third bedroom. The paper I now have to recycle for more printing on the blank side would be the equivalent of 3 or 4 packets of printing paper.

It becomes depressing doesnít it cookie.  Weíre not so hot over here, mid 30ís after a couple of hotter days but it plays havoc with my appetite, just not interested in food in hot weather.  A bit lucky to not have anyone else to feed as the way Iím feeling these days theyíd probably have to organise their own meals these days.

Cookie I know a lady who has 100 of those very thick albums but she hasnít been developing films since she bought her iPad. She knows her kids will throw them straight in the bin, theyíve told her that.  She did tend to go overboard with her photo taking, not just one picture of something but several all very similar and she put them all in the albums even if they were out of focus.  She used to get the double deal and give the other copy to whomever was in the photo.  I rarely look at my photos so it was easy to work out what to keep and what to get rid of, it saves the kids having to do it down the track.

Iíve spent 13 hours over the past 2 days going through my loose photos and albums. Had a major cull and then filled the empty spaces of the albums with the loose photos. I made one each for my daughters and grand-children of those they would be interested in. The contents of the box all found a place, either in the albums or in the bin. I will now organise a picture book from the iPad, I so prefer those books to photo albums - I already have 2 and they take up so much less space than albums.

Do you mean a tomato jam that looks and tastes like raspberry jam cookie or a savoury one? Mum used to make one when I was young using a small bottle of Bobo cordial concentrate and no-one would have guessed it was made with tomatoes.  This is the only one anything like it that I could find.  I donít think she put the raspberry jam in it though

ďTomato" Raspberry Jam

Simmer 2.75 kg peeled and chopped tomatoes for 30 minutes. Add 2.25 kg sugar, boil for 30 minutes. Add 440g jar of raspberry jam or a 50g packet of jam setter. Add 100ml of raspberry extract and boil rapidly for 20-30 minutes. Bottle and seal.
