…playing soccer with my Mr 7. He’s been pretty impossible lately, endlessly, aggressively silly and annoying, but practicing with him brings out the best in him. He counts down the days to his futsal matches every week. His team has won all three of their games this term – all three that he’s ever played. I wonder if the shine will go off if they start losing?
…impulse buying second-hand stuff. Like an extremely cute handbag with a Chinese (I think) scene printed on it and with someone else’s receipts and $1.50 of Aussie coins in the pocket. I have found often that those impulse purchases are the things you really love and keep wearing for years, like the silver cuff I bought on impulse in an antique shop Palmerston North about 13 years ago and still adore.
