A heavy glossy Christmas shopping catalogue has fallen out of the newspaper. It’s from Liberty. I fear it.
- Shearling ear muffs £120
- Rose-cut diamond star brooch £3,500
- Myrrh Imperial candle £65
- Small Leather Rhino £165 (I have no idea…)
I am not linking to these, in case in a moment of madness, you click and accidentally buy something ridiculous.
Yesterday was Black Friday and the police were not impressed: Shopping madness! The words ‘anarchy’, ‘violence’ and ‘paramedics’ all featuring in an article about people buying TVs. It’s unfortunate that Black Friday has seeped in to the UK shopping agenda. Even my supermarket was sending me emails telling me about Black Friday specials. Did I say: ‘Ridiculous’?
Calm down peoples. It’s just stuff. Stop shopping and watch this calming video…
Here’s one I wrote earlier
I give up. I keep giving up. I have THIS MUCH to do each day. (Imagine me holding an over-sized hand-knitted cushion.) I have THIS MUCH time each day. (Imagine me holding a medium box of assorted supermarket chocolates.)
First World Problems. I live in the First World and I have problems. Some people call this ‘White Whine’, but as I’m not technically white, I prefer the term ‘First World Problems’.
