Happy Christmas Seannachoill revellers.

Martin

I have just caught up on your last few posts, and it shows that the journey is worth the end result, this comes from someone who was trying to work at home on Monday, as has only travelling 20 miles to go to Waitrose last weekend. Well I needed to get my free paper and tea, plus watch the middle classes fight over the reduced shelves, so they can fill up their Audi's, and other up-market makes that are available!
In very wet England, we have sunshine and an almost quiet house, this is apart from me typing away, although I am not sure it will staying this way for long. So enjoy the limited range of baked goods, as I am sure they will taste nice and if you go out remember to tie your laces.

PS I loved the reflected image in the lovely bauble.

Merry Christmas! Enjoy your time at home.

Great blogging; keep up the good work!

2015 The List Of Stuff

  • 48 - Art Fund Book
    I was expecting a card but it came with this book.
  • 47 - Pair of Stan Smith Original Sneakers
    OK I admit it I'm weak. God knows how long this list would be if I wasn't trying to restrict the stuff I bring into the house.
  • 45 - 46 Two White T-Shirts
    Essential items of clothing which need replacing every year. I don't feel guilty about these.
  • 43-44 Two Tops From Uniqlo
    I blame That's Not My Age and Belgian Waffle for reminding me about what good stuff you can get in Uniqlo.
  • 41-42 Two Kilner Jars
    They were cheap and there might be some jam making in the offing.
  • 40 - Book
    Old, slightly damaged book.
  • 39 - Poole Saucer
    I bought this along with a book for a pound. How could I say no?
  • 38 - White Cotton Top
    This is from Muji and reminds me of the kind of thing Mrs Watts, our PE teacher wore in the 1970s.
  • 34-37 Four Books
    I went a bit mad in the LRB bookshop.
  • 33 - Small basket
    This was very expensive but I believe it is a work of art. I used the money I earned doing the count. At least I will have one positive thing as a result of the election.
  • 32 5 x Postcards
    I couldn't resist buying 5 postcards at the Ravilious exhibition - counting this as one item.
  • 28 - 31
    Four novels. I went a bit mad in Waterstones. I will have to donate some books to the telephone library this week.
  • 25 - 27
    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.

A Thousand Things

  • 703 -704 Two Ramekins
    Used once in last 3 years. Left in cardboard box on wall.
  • 702 - Vitamin C tablets
    These were four years old. Bin.
  • 701 - Book
    I have been reading some dross lately. This book by Tana French was quite good but not worth keeping. I have given it to Soda Farl.
  • 696 - 700 5 x tupperware boxes
    I defrosted my freezer a few weeks ago and realised I had a huge number of tupperware boxes way in excess of what one person living alone who does not keep bits and pieces of leftover food in the fridge needs. I left them in a box on the wall by the house and someone has taken them.
  • 695 - Paprika from Spanish shop
    I bought this because I loved the packaging but that's no reason to keep something that is years out of date. Bin.
  • 694 - Packet of Jelly
    Sell-by date 2010. Bin.
  • 693 - Work Notebook
    This dates from the job I left in 2011. I had forgotten about all those stupid meetings I went to. Recycling bin.
  • 691-692 Two Cardboard Boxes
    I was keeping these just in case...
  • 690 - Boots
    I must have been feeling a bit genderfluid the day I bought these in TK Maxx. Charity shop.
  • 689 - Uniqlo Cardigan
    Haven't worn it for two years. Charity shop.
