Can’t believe that I’ve had to turn the heating back on – I’m freezing. What’s happened to spring?
Ashley has asked me if I can work full time in his office next week, as his secretary is totally snowed under and they need some general admin help. That’s a nasty shock to the system: clearly he’s forgotten that I already have two part-time jobs, a busy eBay business to run, and am currently up to my eyes in a PhD transcription job for a friend!! So I’ve negotiated it down to four days, finishing at 3.30 pm so I can pick Will up from school at 4. But am still reeling at the prospect!
Hence I’m spending the weekend doing the transcription work that was earmarked for next week.
Oh well, it’s all money towards the New York trip that I’m thinking about for next spring.
More interestingly, I had a quick rootle around the Barnardo’s charity shop in town yesterday morning, after a thwarted trip to return some books to the library (apparently the library was not opening until 10.30 am due to the previous day’s election – WTF?).
Barnardo’s is currently one of my most favourite charity shops, as all the clothes are between £1.50 and £3.00, which is considerably less than in most of the others. So for the grand total of £9.50 I got:
For me, a silk black and white tunic top, and a pair of black linen cropped trousers.
A pair of black pinstripe Jaeger trousers to sell, a Mothercare maternity denim skirt to sell, a pair of plus size ladies trousers from Evans to sell, and a brand new black strappy top with built in bra from M&S for me.
It almost made up for not being able to return my library books!
