point of coasters
I idly wonder?
Does anyone use them?
Over the years I have been given so many
from funny ones with comical sheep on,
flash fancy silverplated, raffia,
even slices of dried pineapple.
Without a qualm they all get taken to the nearest charity shop.
And still they come...
friends trying to tell me something
It used to be a joke in the family that
Auntie Margarine wherever she went used to always buy tea towels as gifts. I have always poured scorn on such unimaginative presents...until now,
the onset of official old age has brought about a change.
My heart lifts as I open the cupboard and see neat piles of folded tea towels from John o'
Groats to Lands End. The potted history of a not forgotten Edwardian Aunt.
What exactly is it about old ladies and piles of linen I wonder?
