I’m in some money!

I always put it down to my Yorkshire background, that I’ve always been careful with money. I know, most of my youth was spent ‘down south’, but I seemed to take that piece of Yorkshire with me. Dont get me wrong, if I’ve needed to spend money, I’ve spent it, but when it comes to just spending it, for the sake of it, I’m awful at that!

Which is why I’ve got 2 ‘rewards’ this year, totalling £40 (I know, definitely not Trump money lol), and so far havent spent a penny of it. I know, treat myself, just go with it, but I’m not good at that. In truth, I had planned to buy a new pair of shoes (needed) with the £15 voucher, but I would need to go to the shoe shop for that (can only buy from store in shop, not online, even though they have a website), and in current weather, well, I dont fancy doing that. I had thought of going into town on Thursday, and doing that, but then I discovered the pair I was using had holes in the soles, so unusable, and another pair I had, have got solid backs, and tore my heels to pieces when I wore them to the Surgery on Thursday. So in the end, I ordered them online, paid on my own card, so I’ve still got that voucher. Yes, I need to find out what I can order online with it lol! Some company called One4All, which will probably mean nothing to my US readers, and probably most of my UK readers too!

The other £25 voucher is from work, and I chose Amazon as the lucky site to deposit it at. In truth, I’d love a flapper style dress, but most of those are pretty short (the 2 I already have are above the knee), and at my age, I’m not sure I should be flashing my legs that much! So no, I’ve put myself off buying one, as a waste, even though its not really my money. No, cant find a nice maxi length one, because of course, young flappers never wore maxi length dresses! I did see a lovely alien suit, but seriously, when am I really going to wear it, even if it would be fun, so…

I know, I really must just buy something, seriously! Ah well…

OK, the video. I’m in vintage mood tonight, making this a double for 30’s movie clips. The amusing thing here, is how far down the cast list that Ginger Rogers is! Yes, made just before she made it famous with Astaire! Of course, lots of chorus line dancers here, at least a couple of whom could be Clara Johnson, they look similar, but they are on screen so briefly that either of them could be her, or neither of them! But yes, in a very small sense, the song is true for me!
