I decided to buy another £5 of Bitcoin. I do think it’ll go up again eventually – maybe not #ToTheMoon lol, but I do think its here to stay in one form or another.
I definitely overthink the dog’s enrichment sometimes. I just shoved one of his boring old toys inside the cardboard tube of a toilet roll and he is HOOKED
But also, I bought him a lick mat from wilkos haha
I do distinguish between “toys” and “puzzles”, in that puzzles need a human to set it up, but toys he can just play with himself, a ball or a teddy. The Lick mat really pushes that definition but I think it works for planning spending. I dont buy Sherlock toys often anymore, he has plenty.
Unfortunately (?) he didn’t take to the lick mat. The question mark is there because I quickly discovered it is an absolute BASTARD to clean, the texture they used to make it interesting to lick is a bunch of crosses, so it’s basically all corners and I cannot get the peanut butter out of it. I tried it twice and he doesn’t like it, and the damn thing is too much fuss to try again, but I also feel like I can’t just toss it in a cupboard with peanut butter still on as it’ll go mouldy. I’ll try put it through my partners dishwasher but I may just have to throw it out.
The first week of the month is often taken with buying little things I’ve been putting off. I do need to buy a clothes airer rack, which is not ideal, but I found one in wilkos for only £15 where the Argos ones I was looking at were £25.
I also bought some vegetable choppers from Amazon. My food processor already slices but it’s very thin, and its has a grater attachment, and the puree blade minces onion and garlic fine, so I was really only looking for something that can do chunky cuts. I was originally looking at this one, but I was worried it wouldn’t cut chunky enough, so I ended up getting an apple corer and a crinkle cut blade. Next week I’ll be able to test them and see how they work.
I also bought some old childhood books I loved by Tamora Pierce, I bought three out of four of the Circle Of Magic books. I want them in a particular cover art style to match childhood memories so I’ll dig up the third book eventually.
A recruiter spotted my CV and wants to help me find a job. Which is good, except he’s calling me every. single. day.
I’m still at work! He’s already lined up two interviews for me, so that’s promising. Except now I actually have to do the thing I said I wanted to, lol, how rude. Kind of nervous about interviews but I’m sure it’ll be fine. They’re for generic Finance Admin Assistant type dealies.
