Here are my answers to the questions I posted earlier
1. Which of the following could you do without? TV, Computer, Mobile Phone.
Most of my readers know we don’t have a TV and haven’t had one since 2007.
I do my blogwork on a laptop, and my mobile phone is a basic PAYG.
Of those two, if I had to do without one, it would probably be the computer and I would go to the library and use one of theirs.
2. Do you have a lot of old photographs in a box, or did you put them in albums?
They are in a box in the roof and about to be sorted into a collage to go where the dartboard was.
3. What was the first thing you bought for yourself when you started work?
I helped my Mum out at the cafe/shop when I was a teenager and bought myself a record player by paying off so much every week. It cost me £17.10.00 and I brought it home on the bus.
4. What is the biggest thing you have bought that did not require finance?
I always wanted to pay for a new car in small change but then discovered that the garage would not be legally bound to accept it. When we were both working and earning good money, we were ion a position to change our cars every couple of years, and these were always bought with cash.
When we moved away from Poole, we had no mortgage to settle when we sold the bungalow, and so the cottage was a cash purchase. This was also the case for the boat, and the property we are in now. Sadly, we lost a lot of money on the cottage as well as everything we had invested in it, but our proud boast is still that we don’t owe a penny to a soul.
