Re: Your latest purchases, cont.

360 quid for a new (but used) power steering servo pump for my car. Ironically, the reason I bought this specific car was because it had working power steering (common fault on the early fabias).

Yesterday I bought a new dress. When I showed it to Mr. Lemon, he told be it looks like a Star Trek uniform.

Apparently, Star Trek is even ruling my subconscious now.

Six yards of 3/4" purple stone to finally, FINALLY fill into my bordered driveway and the picnic table area beyond. It gets delivered this Friday afternoon. I spent all weekend preparing these areas with landscape boarders and a nice new step platform. I'm putting the time in now so that when everything becomes green and flowery, I can enjoy it

I bought all the goods to make cake for my friends' anniversary today. I'm so glad they liked it. Slaved all day, I did.

Google suggests that these are they moulds used to create the patterns on them. Huh. Learn something new every day.


Just a few groceries today. Plus, took advantage of the recent market dip extending into today to add a few shares, focusing heavily on dividend plays (with some long-term growth potential).

ETA: oh yeah, and I had to pay my road tax for the year too. Forgot about that. Or rather, would prefer to forget about that...
