something I am really terrible at! I have really been going a bit overboard recently - meals out, concert tickets, clothes - I need to learn to limit myself to what I can actually afford, and to add monthly savings into my outgoings before I spend on other things.
So, on this note I made another purchase... don't worry it was only ceramic/glass glue. I had this lovely coaster I got in a thrift store in San Francisco last year. Sadly the coaster broke in my suitcase on the way home and I'd left it like this for the past year. So I fixed this with my new glue and while I was at it I fixed my favourite tea caddy, a great find from the Salvation Army shop on Dumbarton Road in Glasgow (I'd recommend a visit to anyone in the area, it's usually guaranteed to turn up some good finds). I broke the tea caddy on one of my clumsy mornings, obviously before I'd had the caffeine needed to get me started, and I was so sad, but determined to fix it.
