The Chipped Teapot Coincidence
We always make our tea in a teapot - none of that teabag in a cup nonsense! We've had the same teapot for years (the one on the right of the photo) but, somehow, the spout got chipped, as did the inside of the lid.
This morning my wife said, "What a shame, I really liked that teapot," or something similar, and added, "I wish we could get another one the same."
Later we went for a walk. It had been raining and by 'chance' we passed a sign for a car boot sale. I didn't think it was worth looking as, because of the weather, there weren't many cars. My wife said we might as well take a look, so we did. And - as you've probably guessed the coincidence - the second car boot we viewed had the very same teapot for sale (the one on the left of the photo).
So, mission accomplished without really trying! Strange how things work out - when you don't try too hard.
