Only to find it was delayed.
Of course, I could have sulked, or melted like warm Nutella into an incandescant rage.
But the Year of Not Buying Stuff is about appreciating the present for what it is, being happy with what I have and not fussing about what I can't change,
Because, funilly enough, it's not changeable.
Also, usually, it doesn't matter that much and can present all sorts of good stuff - if you look at it right.
So instead, I got to appreciate 20 minutes sitting outside in the fresh air, on a nice sunny day watching odd southerners.
