The lovely Sharon just passed a birthday.  It was not a major milestone but it was another opportunity for me to point out how she is, in fact, older than me.  However, this is no excuse for her recent purchase; a trolley!

Apparently it was not a decision taken lightly and plenty of denial had to be dealt with before she finally got it.  She insists that it is not due to age but practicality.  When a normally 8 stone frame gets a 2 stone addition of a growing soul and its life support system then a trolley becomes necessary to carry the weight of the fruit and vegetables around the streets of Belfast.  Although I constantly point out that she has the  burden of more years time over me, it seems she may have the advantage of wisdom.
