5 Things You Are Glad You Bought

Dr Tanya is our host, and today asks us about five things we’re glad we bought.
The best thing I ever bought I think was my piano in 1998. It took the entire household decorating budget but gave me hours of pleasure. I sold it in 2013 before we sold the cottage and bought the boat, though the latter was certainly not on the card when I did!

I would also say our two settees in 2018 were a good purchase as they have doubled up as beds when Hubby was having restless nights with reflux as the angle of the cushions was just right to get him to sleep.

The boat was also a good buy. House prices were getting away from us in 2014 and buying a narrow boat was actually our best option. We had a lot of fun, learned a lot about ourselves and what was important, and enjoyed the simplistic life. If ill health hadn’t crept up on us, the chances are we would still be on it.

My Yugo 55A was also a good buy and although people laugh and joke about it, the car was reliable, economical to run and could take on BMWs at traffic lights and win!
OK, they caught up with me pretty quickly but that wasn’t really the point!
Google image: mine was the same colour but had yellow ‘go faster’ stripes.

Finally, I’m opting for Hubby’s shed. He’d wanted one for so long and I bought it for his birthday last year.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Great purchases! I think my best buy was the hair trimming kit. I think I paid $20 for it way back. I gave Sparky and the boys hair cuts from 1995 on. If you figure a hair cut every 6 weeks at an under estimate of $10 then that kit has more than paid for itself!
