Black Friday… Love it or Loath it..

Here we are again. Another milestone in the calendar. Black Friday

Are you one of these people who wait for it to arrive and put off any purchases until then? Or like me? My attitude to this is if i didn’t need or want it, its going to be more expensive.  Let me explain. You see an advert for some super trendy boots that have been reduced from £100 to £20. Is that a bargain? It is if you were happy to pay the £100 for the boots in the first place! If you don’t need or want them, £20 wasted.

Dress to Impress?

There have been a few articles lately on the very feisty topic of dress code.

I find dress code to be a bit like Marmite, you either love it, or hate it! I have done a few cruises and the thing i like most is an opportunity to dress up. I find cruising so much better for this than a standard package holiday. A real pet hate of mine is to be having dinner and the family of shorts t shirts and flip flops arrive. I find myself holding my breath hoping and praying they don’t sit near me!

Do you ever wonder or day dream about what you would do with a lottery win?

I do.

About 12 years ago i was working for Thomas Cook and one of the benefits was really cheap travel. Week all inclusive with flights £79 per person. Perfect.
