The January sales, which nowadays start on St Stephen's Day, no longer tempt me. I don't need new clothes, and if I do, I can always pick them up at a discounted price in TK Maxx at any time of the year. Our house is furnished and decorated, and Santa brought me a new lens, so I have no reason to go shopping.
The sunshine of recent days gave way to grey skies and rain, so apart from walking the dog, I didn't
venture out today. I took my seat in front of the warm stove, read, chatted, and hatched a plan that dinner would consist of whatever we could find in the freezer. A fine plan which worked well.
