Strict Wife Of The ’70s Manages The Household - Chapter 254
It’s just that the two of them were at school now. After school, the production team also made the children handle some smaller jobs to earn work points, so it wasn’t going to be easy to ask them to sew instead.
Han Qingsong would be more than willing to do so. Nevertheless, he was still a man and a Director. He was already busy at work these days, so she was rather adamant about having him help her with her needlework.
Now, there was gossip circulating in the village that Han Qingsong didn’t go to work because he was busy helping his wife sew blankets at home.
Although she didn’t care about her reputation at all, she still had to think about Han Qingsong and the children.
Han Qingyun’s voice sounded from outside the house and Lin Lan ushered him to enter.
Seeing Lin Lan sewing a winter jacket, Han Qingyun smiled and said, “Sister-in-law, why don’t you leave it for the third brother to sew?”
“It’s not like I can’t sew, so of course I don’t need him to do something like this,” Lin Lan smiled, “Do you need anything?”
Han Qingyun handed the piece of paper to Lin Lan, “A love letter from the third brother to you.”
Lin Lan saw that he was smiling a little too sweetly and immediately knew that he was joking, “Nonsense— your third brother wouldn’t write a love letter even if he was beaten to death.”
She took it over and looked at it, noting that he needed money to buy some bricks and tiles.
She was surprised, “We managed to buy them already?”
Han Qingyun, “Mmhm! That’s my third brother alright; there’s nothing he can’t get done.”
(T/N: As mentioned before, friends can address each other as family members as long as they are close, so there will be times where certain characters will address someone with a familial term— even though they are in no way related)
Lin Lan asked how much money was needed.
Han Qingyun, “A brick is at least 2.5 cents, maybe 3. We won’t be able to transport the entire load back in one day, so there’s no need to make the payment completely now.”
Lin Lan calculated the estimated fee. Since a brick was about 2 or 3 cents, tiles would probably be more expensive, ranging at about 6 to 10 cents each. Hence, the transfer fee that Han Qingsong brought back would almost be spent entirely.
Lin Lan knew that they probably wouldn’t need that many.
At this time, if there was an opportunity to purchase items that couldn’t be bought by money, then she was going to buy more of it.
It would be fine to resell the bricks if they really weren’t going to use it, anyway.
Some would even be willing to pay 3 or perhaps even 4 cents per brick to skip the long queue.
She gave Han Qingyun 300 Yuan and wrote the amount on the note, asking him to bring it to Han Qingsong.
Han Qingyun said, “Sister-in-law, your writing is not bad.”
“Naturally, of course it looks good; don’t look down on your sister-in-law!” Lin Lan pretended to be boastful, “I’m perfect in both literacy and physical ability!”
Han Qingyun was actually shocked. To him, Lin Lan truly did seem like a completely different person. She was even able to pull out 300 Yuan just like that without even thinking about it.
Even his own family wouldn’t be able to take out 300 Yuan that easily.
Han Qingyun wrapped the money and the note in a handkerchief before putting it in his pocket. Then, he went to the brigade to borrow two carts and asked a few youngsters for help.
He wanted to ask the eldest brother and the second brother of the Han family for help as well, but he was afraid of irritating the old lady. Hence, he merely went to his own family’s brothers and uncles for aid.
