Sometimes, my decision making ablilities are rocket-fueled. Both of our last house purchases were made on the basis of instant, lightning decisions. Sometimes, however, less so.
For example, when I bought this jug:

I saw it in the window of a charity shop as I was mooching about on my own, and straight away I liked it. I made a bargain with myself that if it was more than £1, I would leave it. It was £1.50. So I left it. It wasn't until I was home that I got home the voice in my head screaming "50p! That's all, what are you thinking?" was finally heard. I had to make a special trip into town, all three children in tow and spent £1 parking to buy that jug. And I love it!
So, when earlier this week I saw this jug,
I was faced with a dilemma. It was £3.49. Quite an investment! I don't really need another jug, (after all, I have a nice brown one) but I did like it. I hesitated, I remembered my last jug purchase, and I stepped out of my comfort zone and bought that jug. And I love it!

It's only a little thing. It sounds very trivial, but do you know what, I think I'm growing!

2 jugs is not too many. My mother-out-law has whole shelves of jugs. She loves jugs. we buy them for her for presents. You are not even close to having a jug problem.

Excellent - this is good news! And, of course, of all the problems one could have, a jug problem has got to be one of the better options!

It's fun to see your little indulgences. I really like the yellowish one--can see that sitting on *my* kitchen counter.:-)
