Some things don't change

In my reasons to be cheerful on Tuesday I mentioned my astonishing wealth and how surprised I was by it.

Today I was reminded about being a teenager, living in a big old house with massive bills and no spare cash floating around, and how there always seemed to be just enough - never more than we needed, but just if some unexpected money appeared, so did an unexpected expense, but it worked both ways so there wasn't much to complain about (though, being a teenager, I did, a lot).

I had an email from Sib today, in desperation (poor thing, he must have agonised a long time before asking me, I know how much he hates doing it), requiring a loan of sum of money next week so he can move into the house share he has set up. The sum of money is moreorless what is sitting in my current account, added together with the remainder of the money from the ebooks, minus a tank of petrol and a food shop.

The defence rests.

It's so nice to be able to help :)
