notes from a small island

Mirror

This mirror has a history. In my late teens I worked briefly as a care assistant in a job that was superannuated. Then left to do my nursing degree. I was able to claim back the small amount I had paid into the superannuation scheme - about £25 I think (remember this was the 1970s!)

I decided to use some of it to buy myself something I really wanted but had considered too much of an extravagance - a painted mirror. They were all the rage back then.

So I went to the famous Sunday market on Newcastle quayside and spent hours liking at various mirrors on various stalls. Finally I splashed out and bought this one for about half that little windfall.

And it has moved with me 9 or so times since then, and now hangs on our living room wall where I still use it to every day.

2019 challenges, February 11th.

I was out last night and too tired to think when I got home - sorry.

I am watching Michael Portillo on TV and fellow Brits will understand why I am prompted to make the subject for this week 'Coat',although jacket would definitely be fine too!
