My childhood sweatshirts with prints are laying on my daughter's bed, it a cute bed spreed with Flintstones, my little ponies and other characters that was popular in the 80. Hallway carpet, I can see my old nightdress in there and the living room carpet is made of old jeans. I had look around the basement and found a kid apron made of jeans and my mum's floral blouse.

Actually it was a low guttural sound from the back of her throat and it went like this: De---------brah with brah emanating from the back of her throat in a disproving manner......... but I learned so much from her and her house is always my "happy place" to go to when I want to decompress, etc................
