For someone who spent all his money on the towering pleasures of Blackpool, I seem to have bought a lot of stuff since we got back from holiday. Our new bookcase arrived on Monday, and is currently sitting in the hall, waiting for Lisa to fall into it...

It's not technically any softer than the sideboard, but I can use it to store sponges, towels and pillows. It'll give Lisa a fighting chance.

On the subject of soft wares, I also made the most of a message from the depths of Burgess Hill about an iPad games sale at the weekend. I'm now the proud owner of the HD versions of SimCity, Scrabble, Monopoly and Risk, which I bought for the bargain price of just 69p each. Obviously I haven't played them yet because I can't get the iPad off Amelie, but they've already gone back up to £4.99 each, so it was money well spent. Thanks mate.

My biggest feat of spending, however, was on the smallest feet of the family. As of this afternoon, Amelie's got a new pair of bovver boots...

Bovver Boots
They were professionally fitted by Clarks, so I'm pleased to report that just four days before her third birthday, she's now officially a size ten. She's pretty much that in clothes too. The boots are called 'Gypsy Glam', so it's a shame she didn't have them a fortnight ago when we were living in a caravan.

Anyhoo, I might be leaking money like a sieve, but the good news is that I should have something valuable to sell by the weekend. Tomorrow's the annual conference of the British Association of Retinal Screeners. And we all remember what happened last year...
