And managed a few more....
Have also managed to get through an entire day without spending a penny. No, not like that. My spending diary for the day is sterling-neutral: actually, better than that because after the long, dull Hillary's Blinds saga, I have finally had my money refunded. It took 7 emails, 2 recorded delivery letters, endless phone calls AND I still don't know whether it was them or my credit card company that capitulated, but the dosh has popped up on my statement. Hooray.
Yesterday I managed: £1.60 on a coffee, 50p on a book about the history of British holidays that was being chucked out by the library, and £0.00 on tweezers and moisturiser from Boots (I wasn't shop-lifting, I used my Advantage card points).
Lovely Links of the Day:
Sorry, can't remember whose blog this came from, but it looks super-cool, a year-long writing workshop from Jennifer Crusie and Bob Mayer. I've also spotted Ian MacMillan's Writing Lab, a new series of programmes on BBC Radio 3, beginning this Friday at 10pm. Hmmm. Not a great time for the average dissolute would-be writer, but hey. Hopefully you'll be able to listen again on realplayer, plus there's a good basic guide to his approach and some tips here.
Anyone else watch This Life last night, by the way? Tolerably good for 40 minutes I thought, if only for the close-ups of wrinkles and dodgy haircuts (they're getting old too. Not just me!), then it turned plain daft. Bit of a missed opportunity...
