Gone shopping?

Gone shopping?
Or has no new shoes changed our habits?

give and take

Only for me, it's mostly take at the moment.

I think the cracks must be starting to show - people keep giving me stuff (I am most definitely not complaining!).

Yesterday it was a big chocolate bar (yay!) from Claire who, frankly, deserves it much more than me. And today - free bag courtesy of Alice (who is gorgeous in many ways). This is a real blessing as the bag I'm currently using for work is literally falling apart. Oh, and the good people at the Daily Express (not a phrase I often use) have clearly heard of my plight as they are now giving away free books ;oD

The other person I'm grateful to (and here I beg forgiveness from those who've heard endlessly about this already) is George Herbert, who through poetry is really encouraging me in my faith - absolutely free.

The only thing is, I feel like I'm becoming a bit of a freeloader. Suggestions on ways to give back without spending cash, please?

self, which is an assest within it'self Anna you could try searching out a TimeBank

(Timebank are community or group based communities that create a currency of time, rather than financial worth, and through that share skills and knowlesge and then in return use their credits to get other things)

So, for example, you could spend two hours teaching a group about the media then cash in your credits for a mancure type thing.

Regards ever
