William had a day off work today. He asked me if I’d like to go to Boundary Mill and Winfield’s. Winfield’s is a large store which amongst other things sells camping gear and that’s why William wanted to go there. He threw Boundary Mill into the mix as a sweetener because that’s more my kind of store selling amongst other things china and glassware, all that kind of stuff, which is why I said yes, okay, let’s go.
As it happened we only went to Boundary Mill. William had decided for some reason that the two stores were in the same neighbourhood. They’re not, they’re miles apart! Let’s just say he wasn’t too happy when he realised his mistake and leave it at that.
Anyway, we bought a few things today that we needed including these two mugs. They’re china, which is a must for me when it comes to coffee mugs. And what’s more they’re…
…made in England by very nice people! That “Made in England” bit makes me very happy because so often these days everything is made abroad somewhere and especially with china it just doesn’t seem right. I’m sure my cuppas will taste that little bit better in future!
So that is my Simple Pleasure this week, a little message on the bottom of a china cup. Once again I’m joining Dayle at A Collection of This and That to see what others have found pleasure in this week.
And finally, it wasn’t all doom and gloom for Billy today.
Look how happy he was when he tried this hat on. We had a really good laugh over it and so did everyone else in the immediate vicinity. I’m happy to report we didn’t buy it. Suits him in a funny old kinda way though, don’t you think?
