Day 253 - Spell check required

Spell check required

I couldn't believe this sign in a hospital elevator. Someone had already attacked two of the rogue apostrophes with a Twink pen, but somehow copy's remained. Seriously, how long would it have taken to ask someone to check the spelling and punctuation on this sign before it was produced? *shakes head in disbelief*

Day 251 - Secret admirer

A secret admirer

A single red rose left at the door by an admirer, with an anonymous note constructed from letters cut out of a newspaper. (Its contents, although brief, prevent it from being a poison pen letter.) Unfortunately, the object of his affection had moved house several weeks earlier and never got to admire his handiwork. I guess it pays to always check your facts!

Day 248 - Piggy bank

Piggy bank

This is my original piggy bank from when I was just a few years old. It has collected change for more than 30 years. A friend of Mum's gave it to me. It has a big cork on the bottom so it can be used over and over. The cork cost 2c - it's written on the bottom, and I've never forgotten it!

Day 238 - Peek-a-boo house

Peek-a-boo house

Every time I walk down the street, I imagine that this house is crouched down, hiding behind its hedge, peeping cheekily over the top, and getting ready to jump up and shout "peek-a-boo" at passersby.
