My shopping habit in a nutshell










































This sign, seen in a favourite shop in Devizes, was made for people like me. In fact in this very place I recently saw something, pondered, finally decided and....poof! It was gone. I never learn

  3. I've done this a few times in the past but have since changed my shopping habits - at least when it comes to clothes: When I like it and it suits me and I really want it, I'll have it.

    1. I'm not sure any of my shopping is meant to be, DT (except boring grocery shopping). I'm a compulsive ditherer (if there can be such a thing).

  6. Still agonising about the clock we should have bought from a market stall in Dundee.

    1. I really sympathise, L. My party trick is to agonise over a garment, finally decide to buy it, and then find it's sold out.
