That’s Christmas Sorted ….

03 Sep


This year my sister, her best friend and I have taken maximum advantage of the lovely weather and after finding the ultra cheap car park a few streets back from the main drag [sea front parking £2 per hour, our car park £3 all day – bargain!], have done our bit to help the local economy. It began as an add-on to visiting some attractions, as briefly touched upon in the previous post Strike A Lightning

We had enjoyed the 2p machines so much, having a laugh, the tension as the prize teetered at the edge, the excitement as something wanted tipped over and arrived in the tray. It is surprising how territorial you get, with the asserted “stand there, don’t let anyone take my place, I need more 2ps” i announced. The poor attendants must get tired with people getting them to retrieve their prize as it failed to come out the bottom tray [these machines were never designed to hold prizes, in ancient times we were satisfied with just getting the coins to fall]. We have now gone and had a giggle some four times, and sad to admit at one of the wonderful arcades the lovely lady recognises us and joins in our fun too!

The photo above is my 1/3rd share of the spoils .. .. .. and yes that is a £5 note sitting beneath Buddha and the Witch. So that’s the Christmas shopping sorted!!

      I think that is one of my favourite pieces, such a lovely light weight item, a little too big for my skinny wrists. Tis yours!
