While surfing some blogs I saw someone who said she couldn't live without her over locker, so I looked them up.. whew over £300 and more. Then I thought of ebay, there were loads for sale. So I looked at several and put in a bid on one. Almost immediately I was out bid, so I bid again and then put in my top bid.. ah ha I thought that will secure it for me. Then I started to think about it, why did I want an over locker? My machine does a lot of fancy stitches and I do edge fabric when necessary with a blanket stitch which works very well. I went back to the ad. my bid was still the top bid and then I noticed it was collect only!! Silly me why hadn't I seen that. Dh said it wouldn't be a problem as it was on the M1 and we could call in when we went to visit his mother. But still I thought what a wally I was, why didn't read all the ad.
But today I was out bid... whew saved. I didn't need an over locker anyway!
So for Lent I am giving up buying things I don't need, and that will mean books too, oh dear, hope I can keep to it.
Have you given up anything for lent?
