1. Interrupting someone's credit card spiel to say 'no'.
2. I put my hand among the sweaters in the charity shop, feeling bobbled fleece and felted wool and sparking acrylic. My fingers meet something soft and light and dense. A cashmere sweater the colour of peanut butter. I'll find a use for it.
3. An almost new winter coat -- my old one is not going to do another winter -- for just £15.
