During the week, I was tweeting with some of my foodie friends and one of them discovered that I lived on a farm, worked full time as well as actively cooking, baking, occasionally crafting, blogging and sharing a house with my 88 year old mother-in-law. That was my lightbulb moment, I would journal about something other people thought was impossible i.e. sharing a house with my mother-in-law!
"I have shared a house with my mother-in-law since 1985. Many people find this hard to believe and tell me that it would be impossible for them to live in the same house as their MIL. I am not saying that we don't fall out sometimes, but on the whole we all rub along quite well together. There is more tension between my husband and his mum, than between me and her. She will be 89 this year and still drives her own car, she has an active social life and helps around the house as much as she can. Without her help my career would have been impossible, as she was there to look after our children when I returned to work. Sometimes I wonder what our lives would have been like if we didn't share a house with her, but I find it impossible to imagine how it might have been."
Thanks to Anne for a great challenge, it pushes me to do some art journalling which I love, but never seem to find time for.
