So today was really interesting; I attended a workshop on Non Violent Response to angry, controlling children; then I left a folder in a coffee shop and so I had to park again in peak hour traffic (after having paid $26.00 to park in a city car park for the day!!!!!!!!!!!) and walk through a shop to get back to the coffee shop and the shop had a sale on and we needed new plates.
What do you mean you 'needed new plates' I hear you ask. I mean, plates are hardly shoes...they don't 'wear out'?! Well, hellooooo. Yes they do! Especially if children stack the dishwasher and your plates come out chipped and cracked beyond redemption.
But plates are expensive I also hear you say (especially you mum); you shouldn't be wasting money on plates when you already have plates, regardless of their cracks and chips.
Well, ho ho ho ye of little faith!
Harris Scarfe had a sale on and I got these lovely plates (colour hasn't come out well) for the princely sum of $2.00 a plate!!!!!! And they were marked at $14.00 each!The names of the colours give you more of an indication. The plain ones are called Marscapone Gloss, the dark ones Chocolat Gloss and the interdeterminate front colour is Green Tea Gloss!!!
Twelve plates for $24.00 and they are dishwasher safe!
And because we needed something to tie things together;
$5.00!!!!!!!!!! (colour also forced and unnatural) I must try to photograph in daylight more often :-)
Hope you're enjoying the weather wherever you are.
