Sunday 3-(long) points update →
1. After last week's bag bargain
, I went looking for a winter coat, as I've lost so much weight my coats are all huge on me. I almost bought a Michael Kors that fitted well, but the zipper was this bright brass colour that I didn't like. So I decided to think about it, because it was expensive and I had to really like it to spend that kind of money. I didn't like it enough to drop £150 on it. Then I went to Lidl for some groceries and one of their specials this week was coats
. They had my size, a great fit even on the sleeves (usually far too long) and £16.99. The hood detaches, and the fur round the hood also detaches. It's lightweight, warm and showerproof. They had just one in my size and I beat this other woman to it. She was cross. I'm the bargain ninja at the moment.
2. We have a hurricane forecast to hit tonight and into tomorrow. I'm as prepared as I can be, I stowed away the garden furniture and have placed the bird table on its side by the fence. I have plenty of food and some candles in case we lose power. I'm charging up all my devices, although if the power goes down, I'll have no internet, only the 3G on my phone.
3. Not for any moral or philosophical reason I've been eating a vegan diet recently (off the back of my juice fast). I'm not missing meat, eggs or dairy at all. I don't know how long I'll keep it up, but it's definitely easier than I thought it'd be to follow a plant-based diet. I'm sure Thanksgiving spent in the land of pork (Ohio) will put an end to it.
