Spend spend spend

 

It’s all too easy to spend money when isolating 
Amazon has delivered several packages today as have Argos and John Lewis 
Did I need everything on the list, 
Of course not, but it passes the time 

1 air fryer
2 novels, 
A beard trimmer,
A dog lead,
A soup bowl/ cup 
A floor mop,
A duvet cover
Sushi ingredients and chop sticks,
A Chinese zombie rat dvd Rat Train,
A fountain pen and ink

Still isolating , covid test remains positive

  2. Oooh, the internet is a dangerous thing, especially when you're stuck at home. You must be feeling better. A couple of days ago you wouldn't have had the energy to wave a credit card! xx

  6. Gosh, by the time you go back to work, you will be on your new part-time schedule, right? You must be feeling a bit better if you are awake and shopping instead of sleeping! Hope you enjoy your new purchases and feel better soon!

  8. Sounds like the contents of the generation game conveyor belt. Did you forget the cuddly toy?! I hope you get some joy from your new purchases and that your covid test soon shows up as negative. x

    1. Thanks, but it looked so interesting that I found a 15 minute recap on YouTube that turned into the entire movie. INTENSE! You're gonna enjoy it, but may I suggest you keep a clean pair of undies handy because it's crap yourself scary.

    1. It’s lovely and rather expensive , rather indulgent

      Delete
    2. And sometimes indulgence is warranted. A comfort when you're not feeling 100%

  16. I have been looking at air fryers. I saw this Tower one and thought it too cheap. It's size appeals so please do a review so that I can get a second opinion.
    Off topic but as a medical person have you seen an increase in shingles and blood clots among the vaccinated. I have and it's a bit worrying.
    Good to see you on the mend,

  20. They’d better let you out quick or there’ll be no room left in the cottage. Wow. A fountain pen! I haven’t had one of those in a long time.

  21. I have a Ninja airfryer and love it (even bakes cakes). Your airfryer will cut down on your energy bills John. Hope you're back to normal soon.

  22. I have one or two friends who have air fryers - they love them. Nice to see you are getting ready for Roger's arrival. When are you getting him?

  23. I love my air fryer. My favorite thing is rosemary seasalt french fries. I put the potatoes in a container with a splash of oil, seasalt and rosemary and leave them in the fridge for a couple hours. Then I layer them in the airfryer.
