We were up at crack of sparrows to drive to Skegness to collect OH's 'new' toy. It's a 'vintage' electric organ and it's ginormous - weighs a ton - and we had to call on a poor, unsuspecting neighbour to help us unload it - far too heavy for me to be involved with.
I'm assured it was a steal, a real bargain etc etc - hmm . He had one (and was quite proficient) when a teenager - but I needed to know there was a headphones socket for silent playing before I agreed to the purchase. Fortunately it fits very neatly (with about 1cm to spare) in an alcove in the (rarely used) dining room so it's not really in the way & I won't have to look at it too often.
I happen to know he quite fancies a drum kit as well - hopefully this purchase might put that idea on hold....
Next purchase for this household is a new wheelbarrow for me. I shall take him shopping on Friday
Found an excellent farm shop on the way back so stocked up with some good meat and really fresh fenland veg. I'll be cooking chicken liver and mushroom pilaf in a while - yum
