Seller of the books I won yesterday realized she overcharged me for S/H from Eastern Canada and refunded me some money. It's always refreshing when the sellers are honest like that, otherwise I would've had no clue whatsoever!

Ok, did I miss something? How'd you lose your power?!

I always refund if I overcharge for shipping if it's a few dollars or more.

Mums Visa has been granted! We went to the dept of Immigration yesterday to pay in a large cheque, and got the parking fine in the process....then this morning in my emails is one saying she is now a permanent visa holder! All the running around and hard work has paid off!
A good book and a good coffee, what more can anyone want? xx

Sunday and Monday were great. We had glorious weather at the weekend, and on Sunday I met some former and current colleagues for a very relaxed lunch in the sunshine near the South Bank, where there was a fun festival going on.

On Monday evening, I met an old university friend and we went to see a gig by a band that we were into back then and who have just re-formed: Scottish band Hue and Cry. We had a wonderful time and then came back and chatted for ages. (and now I have a sore throat!!)
