The thick of it

It’s impossible to get a sense of the Morphet’s sale while it’s still yelling away in the corner of my screen, but two brief observations from yesterday.

Firstly, what kind of a mad world is it where this costs £160

while this

costs hundreds more.  I don’t understand, I really don’t.

I also noticed this go past yesterday.

Same picture, four different towns.  That’s cheating.  But does anyone know where it is really?

But much more exciting is that we won this wonderful Amstutz.

It’s been on this blog’s ‘About Us’ page since the very start.  And now it’s going to be on our walls.  Hurrah for that.

More on the sale next week, once I’ve sold all my household goods, cats and anything else that might meet the bill.  And built a few more walls to hang everything on.

  • The Paignton Eckersley may have gone for a song but the Lincolnshire one went for £550…unfortunately!

  • Oh yes, because we were one of the underbidders! It’s been on my wish list for a long time, but it felt like too much even for me. Were you bidding too, by any chance?
