On Monday a package turned up at the post office and since I am at home all day Monday I rang VCH at work and asked him if he could get it.
That night he came home with said parcel and gave it to me and then wandered off to do something else.
Tuesday morning as we lay in bed talking before starting our day VCH asked me what was in the parcel, here is a transcript of our conversation.
VCH: What was in the package I brought home yesterday?
VCH: Clocks- what are you going to do with clocks?
Me: They are for my clock collection.
VCH: Clock collection do you have a clock collection
VCH: Well I have never seen any clocks
Me: I have some in the hallway on the shelf as you walk into the house, and I have some small ones over there on the bookshelf (as I point to the ones in our bedroom within his line of sight)
Tell me your husbands are as oblivious to things as mine!
So, I thought I would move them to a more obvious location.
I have put the larger alarm clocks on the sewing cabinet next to the TV in the lounge room
- hopefully he can see them now!
Although, I did point out that I moved them for his benefit, so now he has no excuse!
They are all eBay finds,
I have never in all my scavenging ever seen any locally,
I am not sure where they are hiding or
whether the op shops just toss them because they may no longer work.
