I am spring cleaning my digital cupboard today. A virtual cupboard distributed around the house, across numerous phones and laptops and tablets. How did we manage to hoard so many files? Music, photos…phew! Millions of them. Selfies…(who started this trend?). My eyes hurt with clearing up.
I am ready to give up within the hour. Maybe I should take this up device-by- device. With that decision made, I feel less daunted.
As I browse through the photos, a couple of them from late last year make me smile.
A couple of years ago, we picked up a unique chess set from New Zealand, during our holiday there.
The chess board has green and yellow squares and all the pieces are sheep – black sheep (ha ha) and white sheep.
I treasure this chess set a lot; and my kids are banned from using it to play chess – as the material from which the set is made is breakable.
Late last year, my little nephew came to visit. After having his milk in the morning, he would walk around the living room. I conducted conversations with him from the kitchen, as I experience the ‘mom-goes-crazy-every-morning’ syndrome, and was usually tied-up with my chores.
When the children left for school and I sat down for a breather, I was amused to see that the sheep had started grazing in the meadow. My ‘no-one-touches-this-chess set’ policy flew through the window.
This picture was taken that day.
So everyday, till he was with us, my little nephew grazed his sheep in the green and yellow meadow.
