I wrote my will recently.
I realized that I have very little to leave to people. I think I said that my parents could take things that they wanted, left over books and clothing should go to my school library and a womyns shelter, respectively, and the rest goes to P. and D. But I don't have that special thing that I can say 'Give this to L, it will remind her of our times in Uni'. Or 'A. will like this as it was always meaningful to me'. I have books, I have wool, I have cheap rings. P. is sorted, money is sorted and my wishes are written down.
I don't know why this is so important to me lately. It's been brewing ever since I had P. but I think the death in the extended family has made it important. The will is not witnessed yet, but it's written. And that's important to me.
In other news, I knit P. a scarf. I made a kick ass pot of chilli today. And I really want chocolate.
