The story of Lydia

Removal boxes full of memories

Lydia has lived in Super Street for more than fifty years. People in the neighbourhood know her as Mrs Muller. Recently she’s found it increasingly difficult to walk and she’s becoming more and more forgetful. She’s got to have a clear out, as she’s moving to a nursing home and cannot take everything with her. Removal boxes full of memories! How must she choose what to take with her and what not?

Netsuke collection

So now her living room is full of removal boxes. In the course of her life Lydia has collected lots of things. Her husband Gerrit was a sailor. He brought the most beautiful things back from his travels for Lydia and their three children. She’s also built up many collections herself.
