Paper Bags, Special New Stamps and Alstroemeria

15 Feb

We drove into town today and walked around so I managed some exercise. My ankles have lost their leaden feeling which I woke up with and I am still pain free…………  We were delighted to find that our local Greengrocer now supplies paper bags rather than plastic – brilliant!

Paper bags for produce – hooray!

There has been a new stamp issue today to commemorate the Suffragettes and the Suffragists and their success in winning the Vote for some women. Those who know me, will know that my Great Granny was a Suffragette and those who receive a Christmas card from us will have one of the special stamps on their envelope! I bought enough today for all our Christmas cards.

Suffragette stamps of all the values

Our lovely bunch of Alstroemeria have opened and are brightening the hall. We had sunshine today and it streamed through the house lightening up the blooms.

    So the shots seem to have helped ~> yay!
    I love the paper bags. Hope our grocer starts offering them.
    Perfect stamps for you to stick on your missives.

    Paper bags? Like the old days! How cool is that!
    When I lived in the town of Ramsay in the sixties there was an old style shop at the top of Star Lane (near where we lived) and sometimes on the way to school my brother and I would stop and buy sweets and the owner used to serve them in those cone shaped paper bags.

    Happy you’re up and about.

      Yes, just like the old days. I remember the cone bags too – the last sherbet lemon always got stuck in the corner! 🙂
