I completely agree with you - I'm a freelance artist with a fairly comfortable, but unpredictable and inconsistent, income, and this "cushion" has become more like a trap. I know a lot of my friends use their overdrafts like I do; to tide them over when payment is delayed for a big project, and rent is due and they need that cash immediately. But you CAN get into a spiral of just extending it that bit further, and then a little further... I'm set to get out of mine at the end of this month and start saving properly again, and I can't wait. It's important that we recognize that it IS like a bad relationship.

"Hild" by Nicola Griffith. An absolutely astonishing fictionalised account of the early life of St Hilda, a 7th-century abbess, about whose childhood and adolescence we know (historically) nothing. Full of gritty detail; it makes the reader feel present, shockingly so, in a setting that's off-limits to most writers because it's so distant. She's done her research. Highly, enthusiastically recommended. You probably haven't read it because it was published just last year.

Please do the Hollywood-style curls video! I'm so glad you did this one - I've been wondering how to get such excellent curls. Buying a curling wand is probably a good start...
