  • Confessions of a treasure thief

    Traditionally New Year and the advent of Spring tend to stimulate a good tidy up and a thorough Spring clean, but for me September has felt like a new beginning. Children off to meet their new teacher with crisp uniforms and clean lunchboxes, a new academic year (husband is a university lecturer), and a nice new tan from the summer holiday.
