In a burst of insanity, I bought a glass dip pen for £8.50. I just can't DO this kind of thing any more, but I did...I also spent £3.00 on stones at Watkins' newish artefact shop. Loads of neat stuff in there.
The traffic misery just keeps getting worse. It takes about 45 minutes from my place to Trafalgar Square now, and that's in off-peak!
