  • 48 - Art Fund Book

  • 45 - 46 Two White T-Shirts
    Essential items of clothing which need replacing every year. I don't feel guilty about these.

  • 34-37 Four Books
    I went a bit mad in the LRB bookshop.

  • 32 5 x Postcards
    I couldn't resist buying 5 postcards at the Ravilious exhibition - counting this as one item.

    Four novels. I went a bit mad in Waterstones. I will have to donate some books to the telephone library this week.

    Stuff from walkthewalk - t-shirt, hat and bra. All a bit tacky but for a good cause.
  • 23-24 Two Books
    Another copy of Time Out Book of Walks - my fourth copy so far? I also bought a book about walking which was a mistake as it involves very little reading but lots of fey nonsense.
  • 22. Packet of AAA batteries
    I didn't need to buy so many but they only came in packets of 12 and my television remote controller had stopped working and I didn't want to be restricted to watching only BBC2.
  • 21. A Hand Brush
    I know I shouldn't have but I did.
  • 20. A pair of shoes
    I also bought a pair of really expensive shoes in M&S. Pale blue loafers which are either a brilliant buy or a terrible mistake. I haven't decided yet which it is.
  • 19. Shoes
    I have to go to a work event next week which involves a bit of dressing up so I had to buy some dressing up shoes. I bought a mega cheap pair from M&S. I resent having to do this.
  • 18. Fridge Magnet
    The only thing I bought in Istanbul. Fridge magnets are the only kitsch objects I now allow in my flat.
  • 17 St Matthew's Passion Programme
    Given free at the concert at the Barbican.
  • 16 Denim Skirt
    I did want to buy a denim but I hadn't planned to buy a mid calf tight one. Oh well.
  • 15 A Pair Of Trousers
    I didn't really need these but I was in M&S and I tried them on and they were very flattering and well, what can I say?
  • 14 Dress
    I feel quite guilty about this and must dispose of 3 items of clothing to make up for it. Another very plain dress but, but it was so cheap and will be very good for work.
  • 13 Charcoal filters
    See 12
  • 12 - Mould Cleaner
    Rock and roll! I went mad in Lakeland.
  • 11 - Packet Of Large Plastic Envelopes
    I bought these to parcel up the items I am planning to sell on eBay.
  • 10 - A packet of 100 tea lights
    This is one item. I don't care what you say.
  • 7 - 9 Three small containers.
    What can I say? I went to Ikea and everyone knows if you try to leave without buying something they send you back to go round again.
  • 2 - 6. Kenwood Chef
    I have wanted one of these for at least 20 years. I bought a second hand one which died after a few weeks. This was in a sale and was less than half price. I now have the problem of getting rid of the second hand one. I am counting this as five objects; bowl, mixer and attachments; spatula; spanner; recipe book; and blender.
  • 1. Pot of Chrysanthemums
    I thought these were better value than a bunch of flowers. They cost £3.50.
