This is the first part of 3 posts that show what a understanding husband I have. Over the last 23 years I have subjected him to sleeping in flowery bedding, eating off flowery plates, drinking from flowery cups. He even drives a red car with a large Cath Kidston sticker on the back window...umm..now that's love for you.
Anyway, whilst rummaging in a box at Totnes market the other day, I came across the above crystal tankard. I paused. Inspected. Anth really loves plain glass tankards. But, standing there I pondered this question, is this too much this time? Too feminine? Too over-the-top? The seller approached me and I told him my quandary, using slightly more direct language. He roared with laughter and agreed it was extremely girlie and then said I could have it for only 50p!
So I brought it home expecting him to draw the line with a tankard that sparkles like crazy under our halogen lights; it's handle the most ornate I have ever seen. But to my amazement he loves it. It brings a smile to his lips...or maybe that's just the beer!
