It’s my birthday today and for the first time in as long as I can remember I’ve put all of my birthday money towards a proper birthday present. Amazon’s new Kindle
. With the change – yes, I had change too – I bought a couple of extra classics on top of the 65 I already downloaded for free, and I bought The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo
So thank you to my parents and to my sister for helping me buy this.
I say it’s the first time I’ve spent my birthday money on a birthday present, and that’s true. For too long any extra money I’ve had has paid
for the groceries, or paid a credit card bill, or put petrol in the tank. But 2 years ago I entered into a financial management plan to help me manage my debt (and I’m quite open about this because for too long it’s been a dirty subject that people who care have been ashamed to talk about, yet the best thing that happened to me was finding out that there were other people in the same boat as me, and there is help for those that want it), I’m still paying my debt, but I’m managing my finances the best I ever have done.
I’m at work today. I had a steady day yesterday with just one visitor, twice, and managed to potter enough without resorting to putting my feet on desk and reading the current paperback. More of the same today, please.
