I told you that I hadn't been good. "Selfish," is what Santa called me. Anyhow, having the number of Skrdlovice pieces roughly equal my age is completely appropriate.
... and I thought I was prone to a wee bit of exaggeration.
How things can change overnight... I went to the market this morning and saw the Vizner 6823 I had been eyeing for a few weeks. Originally, the seller was asking 380 PLN for it (about 85 euro) which is far more than I could ever afford or be willing to pay. Out of curiosity, I asked him how much he's asking now. He told me 300 PLN (about 67 euro).
He wanted me to hold it again and look at it, which I did though I told him I don't have that kind of money. Gosh, was it ever lovely. He said he'll sell it to me for 200 PLN (about 45 euro) considering it'll be St. Nicholas Day soon.
Ohhhh, the temptation of it all. I started thinking that I could buy it and sell it for a small profit on ebay...
It came home with me.
When my husband saw it, he said it was beautiful and sparkly (shocking words, coming from him) and not to sell it.
The Vizner 6823 is my St. Nicholas / birthday / Christmas present.
Who would have thought???
By the way, I paid 160 PLN for it...
