After our excursion to Manchester yesterday afternoon Maureen, Jerry, Sylvia and I all went back to my sister, Jean's, house to visit and natter some more. We talked about all sorts of things, as you do.
Today I needed to go to the supermarket but first I popped into a local antiques shop. Among the random things talked about yesterday afternoon was old-fashioned traditional deckchairs. Maureen said she would like one. Not that it will fit in her suitcase, but by coincidence, I found her one in the antiques shop.
We also talked about old school desks. That one was a long discussion! I found one of them too. Curious how much that desk costs? I'll tell you, £225. At that price I'm glad I don't want one!
Now here's the best coincidence. Sylvia has been saying for a while that she wants a chest just like this one I came across in the antiques shop. I was just getting my mobile phone out of my handbag to take a picture of it to send to her when a text message came through. Lo and behold it was from Sylvia. Now how's that for a coincidence? I really like it when coincidences happen. I get a little kick out of them. They seem to happen to me a lot too. Do you think it's because I like 'em or is it just a coincidence?
This is my favourite corner in the shop. I love all the glass and china. I'm wanting a little reading lamp and there's one up there just underneath the big oval mirror on the back wall that I fancy. I'll have to go back soon and hope it's still there. Oh, and that the price is right too, of course.
That's all for now,
