I can't stop buying things! I'm not looking for sympathy, I'm sure many people are in this position too, but I have to stop, I'm running out of space/money/reasons.
Here are my two favourite new things:
'Simulation Mink' coat (great description!) from Snoopers Paradise in Brighton (£22)
Both bought on a Sunday that I thought would be a lot cheaper than it turned out!
So no more buying anything this month. Unless it's a great bargain. Or I really need it. Or I really want it.
I've decided to buy some of my Christmas presents when I get paid at the beginning of November. I know, shoot me now, I said the C-word! But it has to be faced up to sometime, and since I've been adding to a bookmark folder called 'possible presents' all year, full of lovely things, it's not going to be too much of an ordeal (hopefully).
I also managed to steal some great stuff from clearing out my Dad's house ahead of him moving; a wooden bread bin, a very weird/wonderful black goldfish vase, a great giant wicker hamper/basket for storage and a truly beautiful watch on a chain. I know those kind of watches are coming back into fashion at the moment, but I love having one that is genuinely old, beautiful, and has sentimental value - my Dad bought it for his Mum's birthday about 40 years ago. It only keeps the time for about half an hour, so I'm going to try and get it fixed, but I'll be wearing it either way!
Edit: Took some pics this morning to show off the watch:
