Dreams CAN Come True
Every year our church has a summer fete, and every year something goes wrong, ie we forget. Not so this year. We got there just as it was opening, and everything was great. Bought me a burger and some books (10p for paperbacks, 20p for hardbacks - bargain) and a handknitted jumper for Boy for next winter, and then I saw it. A Teddy Ruxpin perching off the end of a table. Oh my god, how much did I want a Teddy Ruxpin when I was little? I nearly fell over when the woman said 'it'll be yours for 70p' 70p!! For a real Teddy Ruxpin! I couldn't pull my wallet out fast enough. Now if only England win it'll be the perfect weekend. Sigh.
