This ledger is a 'cash book':
House - 2 pounds
Gardener and Boy - 2 shillings and 6 pence
May Carpenter - 2 pounds (was she the housekeeper I wonder?)
Freda (monthly allowance) 1 pound
Higham Coal - 2 pounds, 6 shillings
Man (mowing grass) 5 shillings
Cleaning suit (oxford) 6 shillings and 6 pence
British legion xmas treat - 5 shillings
Overcoat cleaned - 9 shillings
Freda (passing exam) 1 poundThere is also something on one of the lists called X-box - I'm guessing that's not a games console - maybe it was a games compendium!
my second happiness today was my new print & pattern book:
This is actually my second copy of the P&P book - the first one from amazon was damaged in the post so I had to send it back without even looking at it - torture indeed. I love the P&P blog - such a inspiring dose of eye candy each day - Bowie does a great job at showcasing some of the design talent out there.
I'm off to dig in to this now. Mr Monda will no doubt be wondering what all the oooh-ing and aaaah-ing is all about.
