Here in NI all adults have been given a £100 voucher to spend locally to help the local economy after all the lockdowns. What a treat! And we've been encouraged to think of it that way ... as a treat. And yesterday I finally spent a bit of it - just on some lovely locally made scents for the house, but it felt like being a child again. You remember the times when you had £1 or £5 to spend and you took forever choosing exactly what to spend it on? Well it was like that - and everyone is the same. While many will be glad of the extra cash for winter fuel or extra foodstuffs, those of us who are a bit luckier have been thinking about shoes, or something for the garden, or money towards a new piece of furniture or a new coat or ..... And lots of places are offering extra if you spend it in their shop.
