Clarice and Pamela have been buying old junk for so long now, that they can't remember a time when they didn't. They are wondering whether to start a shop of their own, to make some room to buy more, as they have read that others do. (They have read this so many times it is starting to bore them!) They borrowed a friend's warehouse space, as their little house is too small to show off anything to its proper advantage. They had fun setting up some of their favourite items and pretending to be shop keepers. They like the idea of sitting around all day, sipping tea, quaffing cake, and waiting for like minded people to wander in off the street, and take something strange, old, most probably slightly damaged, but always wonderful, home. They are pondering over a name for the shop, premises and funds, but other than that it is all systems go.
In other news, they have mainly missed all the hoohah about the future wedding of the future king of England-William, to Kate Middleton-a 'middle class' girl who he met at university. I however, have not missed it, and find it all quite interesting. Obviously it is the perfect story to take the poor British public's minds off of their woes, so it is good in that sense. Also I do find all the detail strangely fascinating. Royal Doulton have had their china designed for a few years now-and changed the initials from K for Kate to C for Catherine quite some time ago. Phew that's a relief! I remember the wedding of Charles and Diana, which I watched at my Nan's flat. It is for this reason that I remember it most actually, rather than the wedding itself. I still have my
C and D souvenir china heart trinket box somewhere. I don't think I will be buying any memorabilia for this wedding though-life has become far too incredibly commercialised since the comparatively innocent days of the eighties! Out of interest, if anyone is still reading my ramblings, and if you live elsewhere-how much has this been covered on your news? I am curious!
