That clinking, clanking sound

It's not often a local rag horoscope is accurate, but having just received my latest bank statement, I can see that I really will have to economise, and learn to live within my means. I'm not destitute yet, but I have been spending a lot of money on fripperies lately and it. must. stop. So I'm making myself a solemn promise right now: January sales or no, there will be no unnecessary purchases when I hit the Big Smoke tomorrow.

It's just a flying visit this time: I'm off to see Lee Mead star in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the Adelphi, with anonypooh, tori_x and miss_fairfax; and will be flying back to Amsterdam on Sunday -- ready to start work again on Monday. Jobsworth rang to remind me that I'd said I'd be back in after Christmas...amazingly, he'd never heard of the full Twelve Days of Christmas...;-)

BTW, and à propos of nothing: if you've changed the lightbulb, and you've changed the fuse, and the light still won't come on in the bathroom, what else is there to check? I've run out of ideas, and feel like smashing something.
