5 December – Credit

I tried one cash purchase today but failed: The Misbourne students are doing Twelfth Night and I thought it would be a fun evening and good to support them. So I rolled up at the school to buy some tickets – only to be told that they are only available online so I had to use a card.

I’m not going to cut up my credit cards. They are an easy way of paying – the only way in many cases, as with The Misbourne – and come with benefits (points, ‘free’ travel insurance...) although apart from the John Lewis vouchers most of these are of limited value. I haven’t looked at whether the new Avios scheme has any good offers  - but, of course, these won’t help me to get in touch with Christmas!

Tomorrow: Christmas Trees
