I haven’t been able to update much so far this year as I still don’t have my MacBook back, and it doesn’t seem likely that I will ever see it again. The temporary solution of lending it to my son appears to have become a permanent one.
Anyway, I’ve been charity store shopping for CD’s on quite a regular basis this year and have been buying CD’s that I would normally not consider. At 3 for £1 it makes it easier to do that. One listen at 33p and you’ve pretty much made your money back, sort of. So here are the ones I picked up yesterday on a trawl of 7 shops.
Going to the same charity shops repeatedly does have diminishing returns so whenever I go to a new town, or somewhere I don’t often go, then popping in to shops I don’t get to go to often is becoming a must. Part of the reason is that an album, a vinyl one, can be anywhere from £15 to £30 whereas the CD’s above were £11 for all of them so for te moment, while I am perhaps not as flush as usual, they are a useful alternative and fulfil my slightly obsessive need for new music.
