Half price sale at the Eltham Brotherhood.

Glenda and I had done our weekly supermarket shop, and as we often do, finished off the day by dropping in at the B.S.L. We didn't know until we got there, that everything was half price. Their prices are so low anyway, they may as well give their stock away! I bought three things.

This polyester casual shoulder bag was so pretty in Chinese patterned fabric that for $3 I figured I could find a use for it one day.

I looked at this blouse several times before pulling it off the rack and trying it on. It looks such an 'old lady's blouse' at first, but I knew it would go well with at least four pairs of cotton slacks that I have, and it fit me perfectly. $3.50.

The MOTH has had two heart attacks, and the cardiologist has referred him to a heart surgeon to have bypass surgery. So I've been reading up on everything I can so I know in advance what to expect when I'll be looking after him. For 60c, this is the best book I've read so far. Graphic details, but very informative. Ken asked what the book said about the bypass operation, and I said "You don't need to know!"

The total value of $7.10 was reduced to $3.50. You can't go wrong with those prices!

hope the book helps you both sort out some questions in your head, dealing with illness is often just a bunch of confusions in your head. Once you sort them, you'll feel more in control.♥
