Taxes

This one - um - taxed me a bit?

I was about to take a picture of the box where all the relevant bits of paper live for when the tax form comes - and then realised there was something so much a part of my life for so many years that it was a much better illustration for the subject.


Taxes.

Yes - I can hear you all going What the heck? Wombat has gone mad!

Let me explain. I bought this painted mirror (very fashionable at the time!) with the tax rebate from my first job. It has moved with me every time since - a period of, uh, over 30 years - and has hung in our entrance, opposite the door into the living room, ever since we moved into this house over 20 years ago.

And so, as tax rebates go, it has been very long-lived!

Comments

a treasure!
Thank you.
What a great interpretation! I love it! I love the mirror as well.
I walk past the mirror twenty times a day - but it took me until this afternoon to see that it was the answer to the prompt!
I like this interpretation of the prompt. And the mirror - what a great way to spend your rebate.
The mirror was very fashionable at the time - and has certainly been a good long-term purchase even thought it is, by now, probably very dated!
What a wonderful approach to the theme! And what a beautiful mirror and wonderful story, besides.
The mirror was very fashionable at the time. I spent ages deciding on exactly which one I liked, and I still like it. I can see it being one of those things that our daughter will always associate with her childhood.
That's a very pretty mirror. I'm jealous.
Although it has been around so long it somehow, unlike some of the others around at the time, is less dated. Well I think so, anyway! So it's nice to know that you like it too.
Gorgeous! I love it!
Thank you - I still like it even after all these years.

I love your icon, by the way.
Thanks! That's the boss of me...

Yours is cute, too! :-)
I love it!
Thank you.
Brilliant interpretation!

Just last night, Bojoette and I were shopping Etsy together for all sorts of peacock finery. The Evil Miss S is getting married, and she is using peacock feathers in her wedding. The lovely thing about the Internet is that we could instant messages our finds to one another and discuss our findings. It's not the same as face-to-face interaction, but it certainly melts the miles away.
I've shopped like that, too - it can be good fun.

And peacock feathers for the wedding theme sounds really neat.
