I was sitting in the car when I noticed a pretty pink plant growing from the wall. I hadn't seen one like it before and didn't know what it was, so got out of the car to have a closer look.
It was a few scraps of material caught on a twig.
A much under-valued and rarely-mentioned advantage of ageing: you see beauty in all things.
And my age is probably the reason why I'm so excited about a new plunger as well. That and my new measuring jug that has quantities on the side that I can read, as opposed to the old jugs which I can only read in very good light and at the right angle.
And I haven't told you about my new food processor either! I have told you that Husband is quite obsessed with this online auction site he found, and after I'd tried sticking my old processor together with duct tape, he decided to see what he could find.
Now of course I have the problem of finding somewhere to store it - which will mean getting rid of my old and much treasured one. But not until I've tried the new one and made sure it works to my satisfaction.
