The internet facilitates all sorts of communication and I wouldn’t be without it, but the lack of paperwork can be problematic.
As some of you know, DH has recently died and it is hard to access some of the information I need. Bank statements are online, so are his lists of contacts, and much more. Some things just take longer to find than if they were on paper in a filing cabinet.
On a lighter note, I found a deed box which belonged to his late mother. Amongst the official paperwork are hand-written letters, some from long ago. They provide a treasured account of family events eg his grandparents’ Ruby wedding anniversary tea. Fascinating reading. Then it struck me how future generations won’t have this as hardly anyone writes newsy letters, and few send cards. Texts, emails and WhatsApp are very useful but won’t be available for our descendants to discover in a deed box!
Anyone else find they have to ‘push’ their pee out?
