Check out this nice write up about my year of buying nothing new, by Gail Johnson of Yahoo! Canada Finance. She actually listened to what I said in the interview, and didn’t make me sound like a total weirdo.
I was looking for a new, “fun” photo to accompany the article, and decided on this one. My husband thought this pose in schoolmarm garb outside Jane Austen’s house was a bit too close to type, but there you go. I guess I’m a type: older sister, schoolteacher, community volunteer. I probably would have been part of the Women’s Temperance Movement if I had lived in another era. Since I enjoy a nice glass of wine, as well as a martini or margarita on occasion, it’s a good thing for me I didn’t.
