Let’s have another quick brew.
Make mine a berry tea with a juiced lime this time!
I know it only seems like 5 mins ago since we were talking about dogs and Greggs over our last cuppa, but you can never drink too much tea can you!!
Ok, so what now….
These coasters. Certainly a bit different. 🤔
Loo awards…that’s a new one!! Is there an awards ceremony like the Baftas/Oscars?? Spotted in Kings Cross train station! Congratulations to Kings Cross 🏆
Maybe not to everyone’s taste I know. But I love it!!! Not sure what I’m going to do with it yet…so many potential uses!!! It’s ornamental value alone screamed ‘SOLD’ at a pop up Sunday market. It’s very heavy cast iron and could also look lovely spray painted. Priced at £30 bagged it for £20.
Can we buy your sunglasses?
I was looking at bits in H&M Home – since they have some dedicated shops nowadays. Anyway I noticed a couple looking at me as they stood looking at some kitchen things. The woman asked where I got my sunglasses – she really liked them and asked how much they cost. I told her.
Woman: “Can I pay you £10 more ‘on top’ for them”
I explained I didn’t want to sell them. I can’t be the only one who knows it’s not easy finding sunglasses that you really really like so I’m keeping them. They’re priceless now.
Man: How about we give you an extra £15 for them.
Me (thinking): Wow!!!! It’s a bidding war. Ebay personified.
Could this be the shape of things to come? If you like someone’s jacket just go up to them in public and make an offer there and then, with your phone ready to send a Paypal payment, or cash in hand. People do it with houses – so maybe it could catch on!
Anyway, the answer was still a very polite no.
I never want to wear them, doubt I’ll ever wear them again and don’t even like them that much really. Then I think, oh but what if one day it’s just what I need! Enough of this – if they’re ‘on reserve’ they’re going on the ‘get rid’ pile. I’ve never thrown anything out and then missed it, so I’ll keep going. Too many clothes taking up space and never being worn is like a weird kind of clothes OCD. Time to clear some space and pass things onto someone who really wants them.
The spare room full of ‘yet to be sorted out’ just keeps on giving!
I’m not one of those bloggers who feels compelled to post routinely. I used to aim for a minimum of one post per week, which is still my rough average. Sometimes less is more, and sometimes I’m just busy. Other times, I might be on a roll, or in the vein of blogger Tim Hall – sometimes I might blog simply because I feel like it, that’s it.
Blogging isn’t a full time job for me, it’s just a leisurely hobby so there’s no pressure.
Anway, I hope you enjoyed this quick brew, tea’s getting a bit cold and I need to nip out so until the next one…..take care and enjoy the rest of the weekend. 🤗🔆
