115/365: V is for ... the Videos


So far this year my decluttering efforts have been focused on the things I want to get rid of.  All very necessary as there is so much that needs to go, but this month I'm having a bit of a change and will be looking at the special items I want to keep.

These are just a few of the videos which Ced made over the years.  I'm eternally grateful that he recorded all of these, capturing family and friends since about 1990.  Best of all is the Clever Sods video, a film he made of all his friends working at their chosen skilled trades, but most importantly he recorded himself working at the lathe - there's very few photos or recordings of him as he was always the one behind the camera so this is a priceless piece of film and I'm unbelievably lucky to have it.  

I'll probably have the videos converted to DVD and will photograph the box labels to use for the DVD covers so that I can keep his handwriting.  Treasured memories!
