ive come a cropper from a less than thorough Will, as have i protected myself with a cast-iron one with names, photos, google earth addresses, precise dates and descriptions etc etc. Of course, it also helped that i 'anticipated' fall-out and 'rearranged the deck chairs' before the legal beagles got started. also, a close friend of my mother's to whom maman tol everything astutely warned me of trouble looming oop 't mill by pretty well describing everything that would happen ... giving me time to sort thru the crown jewels before even anything was official. - including announcing plans for the catweazel easel that still awaits collection. so much for all the huffing and puffing and blowing jewel bos down. but piece of work to peace of work, so no huge egos dented ... everyone should revisit their Wills on an annual basis.

dorgeous day. new haircutmakes me feel fit n lean. an alert reader asked if i wanted the whole world to reak my brothers suggestion to go a little easy on flogging off the family bling and souvenirs - which of course i didnt so good catch there. visitors galore today but no buyers alas. the easel intended for catweazel (apparrently - none of my 24/7 buggings of our landline make any reference to maman wanting the laura knight easel to go to susie, who herself told me '[oh fugeddit!) ... but no matter because she gave me the best tip about scarpering with the bling before even the funeral, and chose the hiding place in that anonymous chest which was perfect hiding place til id gone thru it all and allocated the girls' stuff.
the email sbout going easy on the selling is pinned to the easel n is the first thing 'Friends of san luca see when they arrive n drop simpering gasrdeny hints about buying spare botanical drawings and mum's marbled art paper. all tucked away,, phew, or safely 'in writing' [cruel joke]. the top 10 bestest plant drawings were in the big plastic carrier folder and moved to the study once the jewels were packaged up and out.
wish my camera worked to snap the heater boiler that crashed down right where my jewel box was; woulda killed anyone filching my tie pins n links. around the same time - 1:15am that my girls' box was conveniently added to the suitcase bound for villa thefti, 11 march 2007. date for infamy, as i used to whine at maman.
