safe place…

I need a “safe place” to put all the measurements of my family members and good friends. I’ve measure my poor children over and over again, write down the measurements and loose that important paper. Or ask my Mom for my Dad’s foot measurements over and over again. Only to come across the papers later when I don’t need it.
Hopefully this will serve as a “safe place”, I’m sure you all know how that goes. We put what we don’t want to loose in a safe place and loose it. Watch this make my blog crash…
