I nearly had it

A while back I nearly bought this car. It was a joy to look at but a nightmare to own. It had so many problems you could’ve written a book about it, so in many ways I’m glad I didn’t buy it, but I also really regret it too.

It would have been a brilliant car even though it would have been a money pit. Perhaps sometimes you should do things that you know are wrong or bad for you or whatever just because it might be fun. Sometimes maybe it is worth taking a risk just to do something for the sheer joy of it.

I regret not getting the car. I hope I won’t make the same mistake again, but I can’t be sure.


Can be difficult times. Often too full, of things to do, of raised expectations, of a the need to get everything done.

On occasion though there is some time to stop and think and spend a little extra effort in not being too busy to think.

It is important. I think I need to take some pictures or something.

My battle with buying things

Whenever I decide to buy something I get into trouble. A lot of the time I just end up in a loop trying to make a decision and more often than not I end up deciding that either I don’t need whatever it is, or I won’t use it or that I can in some way re-purpose something I have to sort of do the same job.

Often this is a good thing. Obviously it saves money and means that I don’t end up with a huge amount of old ‘stuff’ that I just look at and then wonder what to do with, but it is frustrating.
