I always try to look out for good stories and this thread on Redditt really caught my eye. It may be embellished somewhat, or be totally factual, but it got me thinking – what’s the best £7.00 I’ve ever spent?
Of course, it depends on how far you want to go back but I think I know what mine is. Twas the night before Christmas (seriously), when all through the house – not a creature was stirring and… Here’s how I spent my £7.00…
I love quality time with my family and Christmas Eve is always special to us. I sat flicking through the local paper and a really great film was showing at my favourite cinema, the Electric Cinema, the UK’s oldest working cinema.
Due to start that very Christmas Eve evening was ‘A Wonderful Life’… I just couldn’t resist booking a ticket. The Price? £7.00.
Of course, I couldn’t go alone. So I booked three further tickets, for my wife and two daughters, each costing an additional £7.00 each ( I know I cheated a little bit there).
A Recipe for Happiness
So here’s my formula for happiness:
My Family + Christmas Eve + The Electric Cinema + A Wonderful Life = The Best £7.00 I have ever spent.
