Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Spending bonanza these past few days:

- collected new suit from tailors, worn for first time yesterday...



- got an extra 30%-off discount offer mailed to me by one of my fave shops so got a few things from there...

And then...

- paid for a major service on the car
- and tomorrow, I have to get the front two tyres replaced as the tread depth is too low

Add in having to do the usual grocery shop earlier on, and filling up the car, and you have a fair bit of coin being spent this week. I call it a Cash Convergence (that came second to Spending Singularity in the mental vote)...

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I ordered a few things from Amazon - some recorder (musical instruments), a flute, and books so I can teach myself how to play them. I've also got several other items on order.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Today I received this book



I also received Meerkats: The Movie which I am giving a little boy for Christmas. I also received Greyfriars Bobby and The Incredible Journey, one of which I am going to give to a five year old girl but I am not sure which is the best of the two would be most suitable.

Bought my nephew a 30 dollar Amazon card for his birthday, since that's what he said he wanted.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I got some books from Amazon in the mail today. One was signed by Alan Bean; another was signed by Charles Duke.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I've just ordered some music books for the recorder and flute. I'm learning to play the instruments. I already read music and that really helps.

This jacket. Actually, my mom bought it for me as a Christmas present, and will give it to me Christmas Eve so I can wear it to church. And it was half price.

It looks better on me than on the model.

Mom also picked this up for me. I love shopping with my mom! (I've got all of her presents bought and wrapped already.)

Some underwear among other items (video games and the Jackie Evancho doll). I collect dolls that I enjoy. I have many Barbie dolls and switch them around for display.

You may not like him, but grilling someone is a little cruel. You could just back over him with your car or something.
