Two pairs of office glasses (like bifocals but with the join graduated), Emporio Armani and Ralph Lauren Polo. I don't often buy designer ones but these look really good on me. Should be ready in the New Year. Not before time. Some wretched woman at Gatwick Airport knocked my old pair and snapped the arm off! I'm making do with my spare reading glasses.

I've been sole in charge of the washing up for a few months now.

No wasted hot water, so the gas bill has plummeted. Good thing too as we have just been told the gas is going up in price again.   >:(

Not beer.

The wholesaler increased prices by 21%, that means the retail price would be OVER the Minimum Unit Price that hasn't even started yet.

Some retailers have cut their mark-up, but mine joined others in refusing to buy it at that price.
