Having used the same"everyday"dinner set for almost 20 years it was well time for a new one and l'd been on the lookout at least a year....then l found the perfect one....but THIS ISN'T it....you see l found the FIRST one a couple of days after Christmas and although it didn't come in a box but was loose on the shelf, l figured it was worth the hassle of stowing all the pieces into one of those wheelie trolleys so it could be hauled up to the checkout, packed up and taken home..... l was totally happy with my purchase for about HALF AN HOUR, when l was reading the junk mail and saw THIS dinner set....
The design around the edges was prettier, the cups had that well shaped sturdy foot and the bowls were deep but not TOO big....It was just a bonus that it cost only a third of the price of the first one...Oh what to DO!!...The next day l just happened to be passing by the shop that sold this set and naturally l HAD to pop in and check it out....well as you can see it didn't take long for me to load all the pieces in THEIR wheelie trolley (it too came loose).... and up to the checkout l went....The only thing that was a little disappointing was that there were only 3 small plates left....but meh!!
At home no-one could believe l'd bought ANOTHER bloody dinner set. l ignored their outbursts and calmly packed up the first dinner set and returned it to the store where they happily reimbursed me:-)) and l'm so happy l did 'cos l love this one better....(Just as well l don't change them too often.)
Oh and by the way when l was in Adelaide l found the three missing plates, can you believe they were the ONLY pieces of that dinner set left in the store....another of life's little (good) mysteries!!!
l propped up the louvre doors in front of the plain old white one that leads down to the kids old bedrooms and my workroom.
Lovin' this white peacock, he was also found in Adelaide and "smuggled" across the State line:-))
