Sorry I opened the door to stranger
A WOMAN aged approximately 50 knocked on my door and said ‘I feel sorry to knock on your door, but I haven’t got enough money for the bus and could you please give me 70p’.
I answered curtly that I had no money as I had spent it all and shut the door.
This woman was carrying a brand-new looking Sainsbury bag and had a stain like a black eye (or birth mark) below her left eye.
I do not usually open the door to strangers and thought afterwards she could have had an accomplice hiding behind my neighbour’s high hedge, as one often hears about.
Perhaps other readers have had the same experience?
Only thought afterwards that as cash is not accepted on local buses, she would not have achieved her stated aim.
Although nothing happened, I am still sorry I opened the door. Furniture & Electrical stores for a long time and think their free collection service for donations is fab.
I love buying new things for my home but I also love adding a piece of recycled furniture into the mix because not only does it tend to be more unique but it can also help a great cause.
As an interiors columnist, I like to source furniture from a wide variety of places, including BHF Furniture & Electrical stores.
It’s amazing to think that by doing up your home with items from BHF stores, you are also helping to fund lifesaving research into heart disease, which affects people of all ages.
Just pop into your local store or call 0800 915 3000 to find out how you can help.
