I decided to use some of it to buy myself something I really wanted but had considered too much of an extravagance - a painted mirror. They were all the rage back then.
So I went to the famous Sunday market on Newcastle quayside and spent hours liking at various mirrors on various stalls. Finally I splashed out and bought this one for about half that little windfall.
And it has moved with me 9 or so times since then, and now hangs on our living room wall where I still use it to every day.
