charity shop china…

March 5, 2013

This morning, after a hesitant and unpromising start, the sun finally fought its way through the clouds and shone. The world looked lovely, if only for half the day. I sat outside the Seven Stars drinking coffee (thanks Dick) and chatting (about planning, unfortunately) and it was warm enough for me to take my coat off. Reckless indeed.

Fuelled by coffee and discussion I walked up the street feeling at one with the world, and so I was easy prey for a charity shop  – which had a selection of plates for 10p each, cunningly placed by the door.

I don’t need any more plates. There are more than enough in the cupboard – so many in fact that there isn’t enough room in the cupboard for all of them and the system only works if there are are a significant number of plates either in the washing up bowl, or on the draining board – or both.

Obviously, I bought 5 plates – three pink and two brown. Together they looked quite good in a modern/retro way.

I put the remaining plums in one of the plates in the hope that someone will eat them. If not, I’ll have to cook them…
