Spring is wearing me out !
Well, I have never stopped this week with this spring weather, lol, washing, ironing, clearing out drawers, jam and marmalade making and today I got up and took down the net curtains, cleaned windows inside and out, hovered and put curtains back up !! all before 12.30pm... WHEW------just having a cup of coffee then it will be time to take Mum to hairdressers .......
Todays card is for a lady who used to have the shoe shop in the village where I grew up (10 mins down the road)she will be 87, looking back it seems impossible that there were so many shops in a small village, newsagent, draper, shoe shop 2 chip shops 2 butchers, large temperance bar, 2 co-op's, 2 grocers, 3 sweet shops, post office, 2 bookies and 6 pubs !!!! This lady also used to deliver fruit and veg with her pony and trap....what changes we have lived through in the last 80 years, In the phone box in the village, you pressed button A to speak or button B for your money back, calls were 3 old pennies lol ENOUGH RAMBLINGS........
