Look at that happy face, he’s been shopping.
Rochdale, our nearest main town, has a new shopping centre
and my mum had bought Philip a waistcoat for Christmas.
Sadly it didn’t fit, hence the trip out to exchange it now that the
shops have reopened.
Also it was an excuse for him to wear his new moleskin waistcoat
and trousers, bought from a lovely family run company in Scotland,
established in 1888.
They are such good quality and price he has bought another set in
a darker shade of green.
The wool jacket by Christian Dior was a bargain £24 find from Stockport’s Pear Mill Vintage Emporium
and his olive green Italian leather shoes were bought over 25 years ago in York.
Back home now and I’m cracking the whip again and I’ve got
him filling the hole where the old garden pond was sited.
Meanwhile I’m still adding finished touches to the guest room.
Here’s a funny before I go. Our friend Mike sent me a photo of his wife Joy
stood next to their two cars in the 80’s.
Apparently Philip had worked on both of them and Mike said
‘That Phil Holland can weld confetti, he’s that good’
Here’s a few funnies Mum posted on her Facebook page.
Have a lovely weekend.
I hope the sunshine’s for you.
