Today I bought myself a Valentines present. I decided that before Great Auntie Ritas inheritance completely disspears on car repairs and other boring essential domestic crap I should buy myself one thing that I really wanted. Not a keepsake as such but something special, something I would treasure, something I probably wouldn't even consider until after the teenagers have graduated, an investment if you will. What could it be? a piece of jewelery? a sculpture? a painting? a pair of designer shoes?Nope, none of the above, obviously...I bought myself a Phantom torch, it is my ultimate torch and a thing of beauty, I have coveted it for nearly four years now. I can hardly wait for it to get here so I can stroke it and polish it and maybe even melt some glass with it but for now I'm just going to dream about it.
