This week I have managed to tick at least one thing of my To Do list. I finally contacted the pension person at work. It took me two minutes to write an email. Within seconds I got a reply telling me to expect a full reply within 20 working days. It's a start I suppose.
I am selling this little dish on eBay and there is currently a bidding war going on with three people bidding against one another. It has currently reached a level that is three times higher than I expected it to be. I always get slightly nervous when things I sell on eBay go for a lot more than I was hoping for as I assume the buyers, when they receive my tat, will be really cross with themselves for having wasted so much money and will as a result leave me negative feedback. I imagine in this particular bidding war that what they really want is the cardboard box.
I got a text at work today from London Sister reminding me that the Margaret Howell sample sale was on for two days. I love Margaret Howell but her clothes are insanely expensive. I am also supposed to be not buying stuff. Despite this I left work early to go to the sale. I spent an hour trying on various items. I was quite tempted by some of the trousers but in the end didn't buy anything. Most of the trousers were made of the kind of wool that is so, so tempting to moths. I couldn't bear to think of them being eaten. As well as the danger from moths the trousers are also designed for women who are at least 6 feet tall so if I had bought a pair I would have had to pay to have them altered. I didn't buy anything. I did enjoy watching the other women at the sale who ranged in age from 2o to 60 and came in all shapes and sizes. The changing room was communal so I saw quite a lot of them. It is amazing how clothes hide a multitude of sins especially when they are extremely well cut clothes.
