Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I was passing by Forbidden Planet to buy the 4th issue of the Game of Thrones comic, when I saw this and couldn't help myself. It will be proudly displayed.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

I bought a few small things for my mother-in-law, for when she comes here in a few weeks and we do a belated Christmas. A Liberty sewing book, a little clip thing you use on the side of a pot so that the spoon drips back into the pot, and some pretty kitchen towels. I still want to pick up one or two more things but only if I see something good.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

Yesterday I spent J\just over $600 on the garden. This included one very large terracotta pot and 4 smaller glazed pots. Also pebbles for use in the back garden and potting mix. I am currently waiting for this all to be delivered.

A TV/Combo for the loungeroom ($199), a cordless telephone with 2 handsets and an AV adapter so I can connect my iPad to my TV to watch video.

About $40 worth of groceries.

All-up I spent about $1000.

You're going to HAVE to post before and after shots of your garden when this is all done.

I can give you a preview of the front yard which is about half finished.

This is what it looked like when we first moved in



No-one could work out where our 'front' door was. Our house is side-on so that both the front and back doors are on the sides. People kept coming to our back-door which I don't like because some of them would leave the gate open and I worried that Miss Chicken will get out of the yard.

This is what it looks like now.



Now at least people can see the front steps though the post lady who delivers parcels is still coming to the back door. I will probably put in a path from the street to the front steps later in the year. I now have a good view of the street from my loungeroom and get more sun in the afternoon. I think I should have got bigger pots for the front of the house. I wish the Housing Department would paint the wooden eaves.

The lawn still looks a little tatty in the areas I took out the trees/bushes. I am hoping it will look better by next year.

Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

So, I got my first royalty cheque from Oxford University Press. Thanks once again to RJDiogenes and anyone else here who bought my book.

After using a big chunk of my cheque to pay down debt, I bought a Kobo Touch e-reader.

Which means, of course, that I used the money from my book...

...to buy a gadget for storing and reading books.

I am NOT an addict. I can quit reading any time I want to.

Everything except razorblades.

I went to the supermarket specifically to buy razorblades but I came home with a bag full of groceries and no razorblades. Argh.

Some bagels, some soda and two movie tickets. A fairly typical Sunday.

I bought items for a massage therapy just this morning. I'll use it by tomorrow and I also bought some vegetable for my diet.
