Something odd happened today. I think my brain had a brainspasm or something. I'm normally the most cautious person with money. I was in JB HiFi with my Mum today and I knew I was going to get a couple of CDs, specifically. I got distracted and got a couple of other things and that was already above budget. Then on the way out, I spotted a Macbook and well, just bought it. I don't even normally go down that aisle on the way out and I hadn't any immediate plans to buy one. My mother was quite taken aback! I mean, I knew at some point I was planning on upgrading my equipment and I had earmarked some savings for it, I just didn't know it was going to be today.
I've been thinking a lot lately about my day job and TPP and the whole taking the leap thing. I think upgrading my laptop is sort of a step in that direction. Financially it feels that way, anyway :)
