Hello from Sunday night, (which turned into a Monday post again)
My what full days we’re having. I’m not complaining in the slightest though. These last few weeks with Robbie home have been so fun and we’ve been really enjoying and making the most of our time in Vancouver. (Even the semi messed up back deck is looking fixable now…lol)
Chloe has started an internship with a lovely, small publishing company and has been feeling a bit overwhelmed at times with a bit of a demand on her time to run the social media side of the company…in the company voice. The company had taken help from the Marketing Heaven to maintain its online presence, but majority of the responsibility was on Chloe. It’s all what she has been trained to do over her four years of her Communications degree, but put into a practical sense, it becomes slightly altered form the comfy school form, so, when she questioned whether she should come have a lovely Sunday with us in the country or stay home and work, we emphasized that Sundays are not for work, and she should get into the habit of having selfish Sundays for rest and family time.
Happily she agreed and off we went.
We found the Mostly British car show, had a mooch in one of our most favourite antique shops where C found a vintage Hudson’s Bay coat and bought it, we stopped in at our favourite aromatherapy-crystal healing store, and found the specialist rose grower where I was super bad and bought 6 roses for the garden and got a 7th free!
That was so funny with C and the coat. She spied it out of the corner of her eye and ran to it practically elbowing other browsers out of the way and immediately tried it on. Then she read the price tag and said, “$165…that’s a lot of money!!!” And reluctantly took it off. It’s true, for a graduating student it is a lot of money, and so I went to ask the front desk lady if there was any room on the price. She was so lovely and said, $165? I can do $150. 😀 ” I went to tell C and she said, “Oh my gosh mom, thanks so much…$150? That’s a pair of Anthro jeans, and I’ll have this and treasure it much longer…Ok then, I’ll go get my wallet.” And ran down to the car. I went to tell the lady that C will take the coat and she went to get the coat and said, “Wait, the price says $195!” I though Oh no, that numpty of mine, she read the price upside down and transposed the 9 to a 6! But then the lady said, “Wait, I’ll call the seller.” She did and the seller said yes and C has her vintage coat. 😀
When it’s meant to be… 😀
