Reblogging this for Friday Flashback.
This was our first year here and we were gradually getting the house furnished and up to spec.
It’s 2022 now, and they say snow is on the way. Funny, come the 30th November 2017 we had some!!

Oh well, our hunt for a Black Friday bargain didn’t pan out, but sometimes these things are for the best.
Our Plan B for a lawnmower was a reconditioned one in a local Bargain Centre where he also did second hand furniture as well as new.
We’d already got our sofa bed when we found this guy, so were interested to see what he had on offer.
Hm. More than twice the price we paid for ours, but he had some pretty nice stuff, though anything new was beyond us.
Today, we had a choice of three petrol mowers, £60, £75 and £85.

Not many deals to be had these days . . . meat tins and dry beans all cost relatively the same as their usual alternatives, whereas there was once a budgetary differentiation amongst these items and their superior or more convenient versions.
We are finding that too. Hubby was checking out a few things the other day and the camera I treated myself to last year is now £150 dearer.
Sometimes the best bargains are those not in a sale.
Who knows? Next week could be a white Friday 🙂
Could be if it snows!!
I think you were wise back then not to buy the mower 💜
snow! I want snow! I hope we get some soon!
I’ll send you ours!! None yet, but I can’t wait to see Maya’s reaction to it.
