SHOW & TELL
More participants here
When my son lived in London I usually came back with a lot of stuff because compared to Belgium many things were much cheaper. We blamed the Euro that all prices went up. But the UK has kept their pounds and the prices had gone up too ! and I would say even more ! Everything I used to buy was the same price more expensive, so it was not worthwhile to fill up my suitcase for nothing.
To comfort myself and bring something with me I bought these cute little keyholders in a Charity shop for cats.
you can take off the coin and use it for your trolley. Only I can't use it because a pound is smaller than a Euro coin.
I also bought these salt and pepper cats.
and to show that I was at the English coast, I found these cute marine cats.
When I came home, I saw this cat hanging at the cupboard. A friend of us had been in Moscow and had brought me a Russian cat ! It really looks very funny.
My electric plate gave up its soul after 15 years of work. I had to buy a new one, which I did, just before leaving for the UK. While I was away Mr. G fed himself with help of the Microwave and restaurants but had the plate installed ! This was a nice surprise for when I came back. It has no buttons anymore just a touchable screen. Great for cleaning !
I didn't participate for a while, but now I am back !
