My mother used to work for a certain travel agency, and they gave her 5 bajillion pads of paper with their logo, "from the desk of So and So", and then their slogan.
After she left that company, 30 years ago, she got to keep the paper. I think we still have unused pads of it!
So, imagine my surprise to come across a handwritten recipe from my Dad, on that particular paper.
It sounds silly, but it was such a nostalgia moment!
One of those things you never throw away, it is just too special.
