Strict Wife Of The ’70s Manages The Household - Chapter 135
“The fourth aunt has just separated, so there must be a shortage of cotton. Take it back and sew a jacket for Xiaowang.”
When Old Lady Lin saw her daughter-in-law’s statement, she took out three more catties of old cotton and threw it on the kang, “It’s the quilt that you gave me before. I disassembled it, washed it and also made one quilt. This is all that’s left of it, so take it.”
Coming here, Lin Lan originally intended to vent, so she couldn’t help but get teary as she was truly surprised.
Old Lady Lin asked her eldest daughter-in-law to find a rag tape to tie the cotton, “Just let her carry it back. Leave the basket behind, it looks much better than her father’s weaving anyway.”
Lin Mei couldn’t help but say, “I’ll say, mother, you not only didn’t chase her out of the house when my fourth sister didn’t bring anything for you, but you even gave her something? The sun is going to rise from the west…
She then looked towards the west.
Old Lady Lin picked up the kang’s broom and tried to swipe it at her for a while, “Don’t make your sister-in-law laugh at your stupidity. Do you think I raised you just for that?”
Lin Mei immediately exaggerated things, “Aiya, it’s good you’re not expecting anything. Eldest sister, second sister, you two won’t have to bring her anything next year…”
“Okay, father and the others should be back and ready to eat anytime soon,” Eldest sister-in-law Lin smoothed things out, “Third aunt and fourth aunt should also stop speaking nonsense. Keep it up and you won’t have any goodies to eat.”
She was the eldest sister-in-law but was also about the same age as the eldest sister and the second sister, so they got along quite well. Although the two youngest sisters have been fighting since childhood, they respect her as she was also easy-going towards them.
When the men came back, they only stopped momentarily to catch up on their relatives’ eventful lives. After eating, they had to go back to work.
Lin Lan then went home with a bag of cotton and two big pastries on her back. Lin Mei walked three miles with her and helped her carry Xiaowang for a while.
The cotton was given by her mother’s family and the pastries were given by her third sister.
Before leaving, Old Lady Lin couldn’t help scolding her, “Stop messing around all the time, okay? The children’s father is back now, so just live a good life,” In fact, she said the same thing before, but the original owner didn’t take it seriously.
Lin Lan nodded, “I know, I’ll see you again in a while.”
At the intersection, Lin Mei was still carrying Xiaowang as Lin Lan told her to place him down.
However, Lin Mei walked another mile with the child on her back before letting go of Xiaowang, “As if I want to walk with you, I just want to walk with Xiaowang.”
She took out a roll of spare change from her pocket, “Mother gave it to you secretly and I also collected some for you…”
Lin Lan was stunned, “I don’t want money, I have money.”
She actually had a lot more. Technically, she was richer than they were.
“Don’t talk about useless things; you haven’t listened to me since you were a child. Live a good life by splitting up the family. Just buy what should be bought at one go. Otherwise, you’re going to feel bad again and won’t buy it then,” Stuffing the money into her hand, she turned around and left after patting Xiaowang on the head.
Holding the money, Lin Lan suddenly felt that her eyes and nose were sore. Her vision was blurry as she wiped her eyes and put the money in her pocket.
“Xiaowang, your grandmother and your third aunt are fierce, but they are good people.”
Xiao Wang nodded, “We should also be nice to them.”
