and the freeze goes on...
Weather and travel still make headline news, but top news is the Sales. Checked out a price on-line for neighbour who has an unwanted present. Buyer paid £20 to get it in time for Christmas, sale price now is £10. Neighbour told buyer (year on year) that she neither wanted nor was going to give presents. Not because she's mean or anything like that, but because she isn't flush with money. I appreciate her honesty.
I've begun to think of forthcoming birthdays in January. So have looked on-line but not yet come across anything that appeals to me, so no purchases made today. Instead have reviewed my finances, which although a tad 'battered' by Festive expenditure has not been excessive.
Guess I ought to thank my upbringing for instilling in me the value of money!
