I reckon I owe you guys an update on yesterday's post. The night passed without drama. All quiet on the South Western front as it were. No posse of men arrived to break into my new home and remove my electrical goods for sale by auction.

How do people get into this position in the first place? Well, perhaps it's not entirely their fault. The marketeers are very sneaky these days in persuading the unsuspecting to spend beyond their means. There's too much choice out there. Take the supermarket for example. So many goods are promoted on the basis that they save time for the busy housewife. But often the efficiencies achieved are negligible in return for the high price paid.
