I hope you all had a lovely weekend everyone. It was really sunny for us in London and I planned to spend most of the weekend with the widows wide open doing some sewing, but unfortunately Al had other ideas and he insisted I help him in the garden doing some much needed (and boring) maintenance. Ah well, it's good that it's been done, the garden was getting kinda hairy.
We also went to our local Chinese supermarket too. As I went to enter the shop I saw 2 people standing outside collecting charity funds for the recent earthquake in China. I gave some money and walked into the store, and blow me down if I didn't hear a woman entering the store behind me say rather loudly 'Move away! I don't give to no charity. It's your problem; it's not for me!" (she wasn't of Chinese origin - and her English wasn't too hot either). That's what she said, word for word! I was so absolutely flabbergasted that my mouth flopped open, as she barged past, she saw me looking liked a shocked fish and gave me a not very nice look. I did retort, but I won't write down what was said...
Of course she could have been in the middle of having a crappy day, but I think it would be fair to say not as crappy as most any individual who needs the support and goodwill of any bona-fide charity.
I dunno, what's up with some people?
