Strict Wife Of The ’70s Manages The Household - Chapter 265
This one looked the best, so there was no need to change it.
Lin Lan also felt that there was a lot of dust and sand in the house, so wearing this scarf often would dirty it quickly. It would be better for her to keep it for now and see what she could do with it later on.
Han Qingsong said, “Then let’s buy another one for you to wear at home.”
…can you be a little more realistic? Our family is going to go bankrupt after building a house.
Lin Lan wondered if she had given him too much pocket money. On the first day, Han Qingsong carried merely 2 Yuan, but he bought meat and obtained extra materials back home.
So this morning, she gave him some extra money to pay him back the money for the grain and oil. She also gave him spare pocket money for his own spending and money for his meals.
How was she to know that he might also be the kind of person who isn’t capable of carrying money in his pocket? If he had the money, he would have the urge to spend it. After all, he was the one who bought such an eye-catching and impractical scarf.
She euphemistically said, “We have to spend a lot of money to build a house. Bricks and tiles cost thousands and there are other materials as well. We have to hire carpenters, bricklayers and we have to buy grain to manage their meals. Also, the children all go to school, so I’m afraid…”
“It’s okay, I will have a monthly salary in the future,” Han Qingsong was not worried.
Lin Lan thought about it. Though the house was the biggest expense, there was no need to worry about it for the next ten years since it was a brick house.
However, when she thought about her four sons in the family that were going to get married and have their own houses in the future, Lin Lan didn’t feel too good about it.
I’m not satisfied, so I have to find a way to earn more money!
Fortunately, the Cultural Revolution would end by the time the children grew up. The civil Commune would be dissolved and the reform would commence by then.
Yes, she could still make it.
Lin Lan felt that the future was very bright, but the tender pink scarf was pressed against the bottom of the box and she didn’t know if it would ever see the light of day again.
The next day, Han Qingsong rode a bicycle to the Commune and met Luo Haicheng to see if anything was out of place. After that, he went to the nearby Commune to get some wood.
If one wanted to build a house, it wasn’t enough to merely have saved a small pile of wood. In fact, he would have to buy some more.
One advantage of buying things from rural Commune members was that he could buy them without a ticket.
When Han Qingsong came back in the afternoon, Sun Zhuowen knew that his Director had foolishly gone to collect the materials by himself. Sun Zhuowen was speechless.
How could there be such a stupid Director?
The key point was that a foolish person like him had actually managed to push himself up to the highest spot, which was a critical hit to Sun Zhuowen.
Sun Zhuowen couldn’t help showing off around him, hinting that Han Qingsong didn’t need to do all that himself. As long as he desired so, there would be men at his beck and call, delivering the materials for him. By then, he could still use his money to buy the items, so it wasn’t at all considered going against the law.
To have the Public Security Bureau buy the wood in their name wouldn’t be the same as a man riding a bicycle himself to get them, right?
