Where does everyone go on Wednesdays?
Alice says statistically it’s a day when people feel low and depressed. Woeful Wednesday. Weary Wednesday.
Whatever, it’s a jolly good day for getting things done. You want to go to the shops for groceries, see a film at the cinema, go out to a restaurant to eat – Wednesday’s your best day; because nobody else is there. Why not? What’s wrong with Wednesday?
My friend Tom Cullinan says you get on better in life if you want what no-one else wants. When I was studying at York University at the age of eighteen, I quickly discovered that going to bed early and getting up early was brilliant – it was like living on campus by yourself. Since those days I have treasured the early morning as a workplace where no-one else is.
To live frugally, effectively and peacefully: choose what’s out of fashion, go to bed at 9pm, start work at 5.30am, if you want to lunch out arrive at 11.45am, and only go into town on a Wednesday.

Smart jacket. I think wherever I am now, ‘smart’ does not apply. I’m not sure that in the US ‘smart’ means the same as it does in the UK – stylish, formally elegant . . .
I was pleased with this. For ages I’d been putting off going through my needle-case and sorting out the needles that had gone a bit rusty. I had too many anyway – they accumulate, goodness knows how! I don’t remember buying any. They just arrive. I sent some off in a Freecycle craft kit, kept some, and these were the ones that needed to be moved on to the Great Needle-case in the Sky.
