i love it..david hates it

so the title of this post says it all..i saw this at a car boot last week and internally screamed when i was told it was 50 pence...not 50 pounds..but 50 shiny pennies..or to you guys in the states..roughly one whole dollar...i said to the stall holder..erm,,yeah go on then ill take it of your hands, and as i walked away..or maybe i was actually skipping, i knew i had found a proper bargain..now don't get me wrong..it probably only cost a few pounds brand new..its made from cheap wood and has a fake gold plastic edging, but i don't care..i love it

BUT..my excitement was slightly dampened when i showed it to my David, and he just screwed up his face and said.."whats that shit"...hes so eloquent i know, but as usual i just turned on my heels and carried my new best friend to the car and got more excited than a normal 32 yr old man should about where i could display this lovely thing..that if your wondering is a fire place cover thingy..i took the little legs of it as they were a bit rubbish...and as i type this now its smiling at me from across the room..the best 50p i have ever spent..
