I am doubly proud of myself today as I just said, 'No.'
Each year for the last few years I have been phoned and asked to have a pound coin collection card for a charity for brain-damaged children. I always say yes even though: a) I never ask anyone who visits to contribute (which I think is the idea) so I end up just making a donation myself; b) I prefer to choose for myself which charities to support; c) I don't like people who intrude into home time (either on the phone or at the door).
So this time I said no, sorry.
And I knew I shouldn't have written about it because now the guilt is dripping off me.

Younger Son has his first day in work today. I should make a cake to welcome him home. That is a good excuse - I mean reason.
