Simply beyond the kitchen (2)

Third week of March and my third post for Becky's March Square challenge.

Dreams about inheritance…

Cee's Share Your World Challenge for the 12th March prompt: If a distant uncle dies and you were always his favourite and leaves you $50,000 (any currency) in his will, what would you do? I would use it for two things: one to pay for some of my "self-funded sabbatical" and use a larger chunk to go towards building my "Hivehaus" in the UK.

Morning pages: Windshield wipers
