Ostentatious Wealth

 I have just sold my old house, so I'm not longer in debt, and I have some money to play with. There was some discussion about what I'd do when this happened. My boss thought I might buy a new Caterham, I thought I might buy a new cardigan. Anyway I have indulged myself a little – there are now two Bentleys in my garage, one vintage and one brand new!

Readers added context they thought people might want to know:

The Charles Bentley company manufactures brooms and brushes. I have owned a Bentley broom for many years and I have just bought a large Bentley dustpan and brush to go with it. They are both currently in the garage.

Moving Day

 I've been moving house for the last month and I still haven't finished. All my friends have rallied around to help, and on the main moving day even my god-daughter was involved. I think my favourite bit of the whole experience was finding one of the boxes which she had packed. It contained my (flashy new carbon-steel) wok, my (flashy new carbon-steel) frying pan and various oven trays. It was labelled "greasy crap".
