Wallet!

I managed to acquire a nice turquoise wallet today.

Oh, and a T-shirt in the sales. The former was a planned buy, the latter a bit of impromptu retail therapy, cos I have been feeling low.

When I got home, I decided to do some prep for the move and ended up semi-cataloguing all of our videos and DVDs in this little index book I found. Just the ones recorded of the TV to do now. That'll probably take longer than all the rest put together.

Bicycles!

The Marquis and I got ourselves new bikes today. I don't think I have ever had a new bike before. :-) We won't get to ride them until Monday, but yay!

I bought myself a pair of girlie pink trainers on Friday. I was very pleased with them and in the shop they felt so comfortable.

On Saturday, I tried them on again and realised that actually, they didn't fit at all. So I took them back to the shop. I looked around a few more shops to see if I couldn't find some other pink trainers that fitted, but no such luck.

Instead I bough myself season 2 of Dark Angel on DVD (for about half the price it usually is :-)), and I also bought the William Hurt mini series of Dune, which the Marquis and I have already watched. I rather liked it and was amazed that somehow they'd managed to make Paul Atreides marginally more sympathetic than in the book.

New Watch

It is now one minute past eight, I am pleased to be able to inform you. :-)

My usual watch -- the good old reliable stainless steel Citizen that I have been given as a gift from my granny 'Nari -- suffered a minor setback on Tuesday, when its strap packed in in such a way as not to be repairable. Of course.
The Marquis went and checked it out at the Watch Hospital.

So today I decided to go and buy a new strap for it, but not leather: it had to be one of those sprung metal ones. I like those. But the only ones small enough that they had at the Watch Hospital I didn't like -- I just wanted a plain one. Fortunately they can be ordered.

But since I have been spending some time wondering what exactly it is I am earning money for, I had earlier in the day decided that I wanted to have a second watch. This feels like the ultimate luxury to me :-). But I figured since I hardly ever wear any jewellery beyond my piratical gold earring and my wedding band, a pretty watch (in gold-colouring) was exactly what I wanted to have earned some money for. I found a nice pretty and elegant watch (by Citizen again, so it happens) and went for it!

It is now eight minutes past eight.

I love my new watch! (But am also looking forward to get my old one back soon...)
