Spending spree

It’s been a busy week, both at work and at home.

I’m spent the week quoting staircases at work and at night continuing revisions for my Desire books. No rest for the wicked, so I must be VERY bad! (well, not really).

In other news, I’ve been spending money. Small things like owls to add to my collection. I’ve been collecting owls before J.K. Rowling made them popular with Harry Potter and I’ve added four items to my ever-growing collection.

This is one of them. Isn’t it just gorgeous. The tapestry is quite large – 46 x 57 cms – and the stitching colours are so vibrant.

And a big purchase I made this week is this shiny new car.

Well, it’s not actually new. It’s a Hyundai Lantra with tinted electric windows, low kms and a very, very good price. It was previously owned by a family friend and was kept immaculate. Quite different to the Ford Telstra I was driving before - you can see it in the background of this picture.

I’ve been looking for a car for ages. I know nothing about cars, but wanted one that I could fall in love with immediately, had a decent boot (no hatchback for me, thanks) and a good price as well – considering I’m madly trying to save for a house. My next big purchase (one that will happen in the next year or so).

So I’m happy….despite being a bit sad to see the old car being taken away. But that lasted a few minutes until I went for a drive in my new car.

Bye for now.

Congrats on the spending spree, Elvina. LOVE the new car and it looks even better in real life than in the photo.
