ESP Shopping

Caroline has had a spooky encounter with a clairvoyant. I think I have surpassed it though.

Examine the photograph above. My sister and I decided not to collaborate for Mother's day this year. The card on the left is the one which I purchased. The card on the right is the one which she purchased. Without conferring.

I have often questioned whether my sister and I have anything more in common than a surname, but clearly we are more closely connected than I had thought.

What made me laugh was the fact before I read the text i chose which card was yours...and I got it right. Mmm maybe I am getting to know you, ha-ha and the fact of who holds knitting needles probably informed too:0)

Yes :)

It's actually a good representation of the differences between me and my sister. At the core, we're similar, but she is pink and fluffy and I am yellow and undecorated :)

The yellow card is Boots.

Aw! Then Caroline I must get another and send it to him on the ward :)

They look very much like our first family cat, Pepsi.

My sister and I are nothing alike - people have even been known to ask if we have the same parents (we do!). I don't think even our taste in cards is similar.

Actually being very different is quite good though as it means we are never in competition with each other and we have always got on well.

Thanks RR - nice to see you :)

Yeah - I find it hard to believe that my sister and I are of the same stock too.

It's interesting what you say though about not being in competition, because I had never thought about that before, but it's true - I felt exactly the same, and it's something I should be grateful for.
