About a week or so a go, during my lunch break, I was doing my usual trawl of the charity shops... when I spied in the corner on the floor a little taupe coloured case.
I opened it up to find this Triumph Tippa portable typewriter, from the 1960's in prestine condition!
My heart did a little leap. The price tag was £15, and I managed to barter the lady down to £10... I felt so lucky!
It now sits pride of place on my sideboard.
We love to type little notes to each other.... such as 'remember to do the recycling' or 'you look hot'.
Yesterday evening I caught Charlie typing out his & Ru's name... who know's this mid-century gem will be helping with his reading and writing.
