I told our bloggy buddy Hudson that I wasn’t going to do any shopping posts for a while…
Part of the fun of being on holiday by the sea is finding those little items that fill a gap. A gap in, perhaps, caravan adornement, that one hadn’t identified until right that very moment. It is possible that one may happen across a blanket or some shells that would fill that ‘character’ gap. An extra blanket is of course essential when one is spending part of the summer on top of a hill in the middle of nowhere.
That all sounds remarkably sensible.
Why then, do you think that the Brother and Spurs Fan thought my reference to ‘an emergency wooden lighthouse and cute hearts’ was funny? Do they not know me at all? Yes, you’re right; they know me too well.
If it hadn’t been an emergency those items wouldn’t just have fallen into my collecting basket. There were really practical notecards in there too- I can write to you on these.
We had seen some of the work of John Lowrie Morrison (Jolomo) that when we went to Mull, beautiful Mull. That was many moons ago, when the little ones were keeping an eye out for Miss Hoolie and Archie the Inventor as we walked around. Surely that was only yesterday?
Art, collecting and children’s tv- not a shopping post at all…
