I've decided not to go to Colours today, which I had been looking forward to, mainly because I'm skint at the moment. As I work freelance, I don't get paid over the summer and also get paid in arrears, so there's nothing coming in this month either. Added to that, we have to buy the offspring a car now he's passed his driving test, so that's going to soak up a fair bit of the bank balance this month as well.
To be honest, I'd only buy stuff that I didn't really need and the thought of traipsing around the notoriously sweaty venue, with hundreds of overweight middle aged bearded men, myself included, all crowded in to a relatively small space on the hottest day of the century, wasn't particularly attractive. Oh well, I'll just have to save up for the Naval Wargames Weekend and Warfare instead.
