Now I can sit down before I fall

I passed a furniture shop while on my way to pick Romeo up from school yesterday. It had a complete clearance sale; everything had to go because the business had failed. I walked on, but...

...I'm one of those kinds of women who, when they're anxious, or stressed, or both, will buy things. Big things, usually. Throwing money at anxiety will not make the feeling disappear, but it will take my mind off it for a while. Sometimes, I will resist the urge, other times I won't. Yesterday was one of the latter times. I turned back and 2 minutes later, had bought a sofa.

A white leather 3-seater, sold to me for less than half its normal retail price

There goes my first advance on my severance pay :(

But I think it's worth it

And it looks like Manasse has already given it his seal of approval

It looks a bit different from the one I was going to buy and saving up for, but at bargain price and with instant delivery thrown in, I just couldn't resist.

It looks like it was made to go there.

I feel less guilty about buying my laptop when I was broke now!

Funny, that's exactly what the delivery men said when they dropped it off. But then of course, that was the space I had in mind for it when I bought it.

Do you still have it? Do you still use it? And are you broke now? Well then! I hope that in a few more months, my having spent more than I should won't matter, either.

White against white helps.

Yes, yes and only if I stop spending money on rubbish. I am eyeing another one though...

Ah...but do you need it?

No. But it's all glossy and powerful and stuff.

Hmmm. You're in a quandary.

Luckily, I would still have to admit to my mother that I didn't buy a washing machine. It's just not worth it!

It's got a lovely smooth keyboard too...

Perhaps you can put it on your Christmas wishlist?

I could, but I suspect I will have to wish on.
