730 things — Day 3 of 365

 Today I am moving on two things that I thought I'd love and cherish for ever.

One is an Apple stand for my i-phone, pleasingly minimalist and with a hole at the back for a charging cable.

I thought this would be so useful, and it sort of is. But the slant of it means that if I use it for making videos you get the nostrilly staring-down-a-deep-hole effect that I hate. And I don't really need it for anything else — I can just put the phone down in the normal way. So, to my surprise, I'm entirely happy to let it go.

The second thing is a lamp with a little dish at the top for water with aromatherapy oils. The lamp does changing colours sparkling through the little acrylic crystals. When I saw it in the shop I just had to have it. I loved it, and I still do, but I also have two other lamps in my room, and somehow enough is enough. It feels like a delicious meal that I've enjoyed but finished now, if you see what I mean.

Both these will go to the charity shop to raise some money for homeless people.
