£100 poorer

Yes. Last night I locked myself out, and two hours and £100 later I was back in. After kicking myself, I tried to look on the bright side. At least it wasn’t raining. At least the locksmith didn’t need to put in a new lock. At least I wasn’t in my underwear.

But then I kept thinking of all the stuff I could have spent £100 on. A flight to Poland, or Seville, or a trip to Bruges. A massage and/or a facial for my 30th birthday. Some new shoes and a dress. Solicitor’s fees and estate agents fees for when (if) we move. Fuck. This is really making me sad.

Poland? Seville? the next flight you book better be to Connecticut or New York!! I will find you some pierogi and whatever they eat in Spain, so you won't miss a thing.

losing money sucks. we're paying 3 months of rent for both houses, CT and IN, this summer. I just can't let myself think of what I could do with the money. buy a ticket to London?

Bilbao, actually! Just booked it. Three nights of tapas, hot weather, old churches and bars. Perfect. We found a really cheap townhouse to stay in in the old part of the city.

Am saving for Connecticut, don't you worry!
