On getting change from £2 when my milk etc cost £1.75 this morning, I was actually surprised to get 25p back. Thought I’d been given 10p too much. Please don’t tell my mum, she already thinks my addition and subtraction skills are truly pathetic. This is at least partly the reason why I never feel safe going into a shop to pay with cash unless I have paper money on me as a backup.
Okay, I will write something of substance here sometime soon, I promise. In the meantime, you could perhaps have a look at what other people are saying.
- on Andrew Bonar, saintly friend of the saintly McCheyne, and much more
- on Assyrian Christians in Iraq, a post that’s several weeks old but still worth reading
- on speaking Arabic in public in America (which you might find funny, depending on your sense of humour)
