That Amazon spend 15 quid for free postage is a good one isn't it. Like the Waitrose spend £10 and park for free, I always go for it and end up spending at least twenty. Partner, who hasn't been at all well, really wanted a fairly obscure CD, which Amazon had for a bargain 6 quid. So I had to make up the difference, didn't I. It took seconds. Blogfriend Lucy Diamond's Any Way You Want Me, went straight in the basket, as did Charlotte Sometimes, a book I've been wanting to get for daughter for ages and ages. In my 'Books I Want' bookmark I found Richard Ashworth's Feng Shui Diaries. Then I was suckered into the 'buy together today' thingy and in went Karen Rauch Carter's Move Your Stuff, Change Your Life, How To Use Feng Shui to Get Love, Money, Respect and Happiness. I've tried Feng Shui before, after reading some book I picked up at a school fair, long ago lent out and never seen again. Lots of friends purse their lips and snigger at me, partner gets hopping mad and calls me a looney, but I definitely think there's something in it and even have my own little story. We were living in a tiny cottage where the front door opens onto the living room. Daughter was about 6 yrs old and her toys were everywhere. I'd blabbled on to a friend about this book, she came round one day and had to climb through the front door over daughter's toy drum kit. 'That'll be blocking your chi pathways,' she joked through the clashing cymbals. I took down the kit after she'd gone and went off to pick daughter up from school. Outside my house I found a tenner and a fiver, rolled up, just lying on the pavement.
So, Easter was dumping doormats, killing ants, buying bins, doorbells, deleting dust, moving mirrors, planting red plants outside the front door, finally doing something about the T junction we live on (shoved it up a few yards), rehanging curtains.. Sounds desperate, but then I guess I am. This past year we've been coping with bad health and consequently worse than ever financial stresses and something has to give! I have to say I am loving both the books, they've made me feel better and we have a very sparkly house and garden. This morning, an agent I queried a long long time ago e-mailed to say she's interested in the novel. She says she wants to see it if nobody else is considering it, so will have to wait for the verdict from the 2 who still have it. But it's been months now, how long do you wait??
Bye bye, thanks for visiting, come again soon.
