Re: White Room Quiz Mon 17 May 2021

I never understood why wedding anniversaries are STILL associated with 'traditional gifts'?

I mean who gives or receives them?

The only ones to interest me, were gold, silver and diamond rofl

I mean, who wants a bit of paper, (unless it's deeds to a house) a chunk of wood, or a bit of pottery? joy

Avaricious much? Yep I'd say so.

Bit of paper? £50 note... chunk of wood? Chippendale furniture... bit of pottery? Morecroft...

all worth a bit and not bad for a gift yahoo

but then again might get

Bit of paper? I.O.U... chunk of wood? box of matches... bit of pottery? chipped tea cup... joy
