Strict Wife Of The ’70s Manages The Household - Chapter 263
Hence, they made two more trips and kept themselves busy till nightfall. They also helped unload the bricks and tiles on the newly approved foundation of Han Qingsong’s house.
It was already around 10 o’clock at night when their work was over. Han Qingsong thanked everyone one by one, letting them know that he would be there to help them out if there was any labor that needed to be done.
This was how things operated in the countryside. When there was work, everyone would do it together, helping each other out and completing it efficiently without spending a penny.
Han Qingyun was still worried, “Third brother, will someone steal it if we leave them here?”
Han Qingsong said, “Who would dare to steal them?”
Han Qingyun smiled, “True, unless someone wanted their arms to be restrained in ropes. I’ll talk to the Security Director and have more patrols around the area.”
When Han Qingsong went home, the children were all asleep, but Lin Lan was still waiting for him with the lamp on while sewing a winter jacket.
He washed his hands and feet before entering the house, “Don’t wait for me if it gets too late.”
Lin Lan put away her needle and thread, “It’s not too late,” It was only 10 o’clock and she was practically living the life of a night owl before she transmigrated.
She went to the kitchen and took out the food in the pot for him to eat.
Han Qingsong was really hungry. Although he had a few bites in the cafeteria, he got hungry very quickly after working hard.
He handed the bag to Lin Lan and went to eat, “The contents inside are for you and our daughter.”
Lin Lan glanced at him unexpectedly, he bought me a present?
She opened the bag and found something that was reddish pink in it. When she took it out, it turned out to be two scarves.
One of the scarves was bright red and seemed to be smaller, so it must be her daughter’s.
The other scarf was a light, princess pink. Apparently, that color was most favored by young girls.
Lin Lan, “…”
As a mother of five children and at such an age, did he want her to wear items of this color?
Is Director Han’s aesthetic okay?
She saw that the pink scarf was quite big and long. It was covered with a layer of gauze, which also sported a hue of dreamy pink. This scarf was big enough to wrap around her head or around her neck and was quite adequate as an accessory.
“It must have been quite pricey,” Lin Lan suppressed her complaints about the color and merely asked about the price.
At this time, money and cloth tickets were required to buy clothes and shoes. Accessories such as scarves, headbands and the like did not require cloth tickets, but they were expensive.
When it came to a normal scarf like the red one, the price would be reasonable, costing at about 1 Yuan.
Usually young women, or those who have younger daughters at home, would buy them. As soon as they got to a certain age, things like this wouldn’t even be considered anymore as it would seem like they were trying to gain attention from occupied men.
But whether it was for their daughters or the young women themselves, they would hardly purchase such a color.
There was no other reason for it besides the fact that it would seem like the woman in question was trying to be the it-girl if she didn’t pull it off well enough!
The people who lived in the countryside tend to have rougher skin. They would get very tanned in summer and blushing red in the winter. Wearing such a tender pink scarf like this would inevitably attract lots of attention.
