After a breakfast of stale bread and mushrooms, the mushrooms were growing on the heel of the bread, I decided I needed to both exercise and shop so I wandered far down the road to the 'Lidl' place where folks tell me things are real bargains.
The lied! As in a previous venture there I found the store cluttered, confusing, prices badly displayed if displayed at all and the customers rough! Not what I am used to in Tesco. The bread was poor and overpriced, two items I bought were under false prices and nothing appeared to be cheaper than the regular shops, so why do folks claim this place is cheaper? Not to me it aint. The three main supermarkets have cheaper prices in my view, or maybe I just know better as to how to work them I wonder? Having walked all that way in chilly bright sunshine I then had to walk all the way back again, not one person offered me a lift.
Having discovered on Saturday just how unfit I am I rediscovered this while crawling back home. Several cups of tea and a long perusal of Jerry's new book I then had a choice of fixing the PC at last or painting the bathroom. Here again I was wrong as I realised I had to make soup first. Lentil soup of my own recipe, the kind of thing that puts hair on your chest, it certainly does that for the pot I make it in! I will leave it fermenting overnight to see what happens. I may get a Nobel Prize for chemistry one day. Then came the painting. However after struggling with the first coat, including the ceiling, including learning the art of falling off without landing in the bath, I decided that was enough and found myself fair puggled with all the effort. The second coat can wait, and luckily I have the museum tomorrow so it may wait until Wednesday. However after all this I still have loads of stuff that require attention! How come I am so busy, in between medical assistance, that so much has not been done yet? Do I need a secretary perhaps?
I would have written something much more interesting but I was forced to watch Hull City beating Brighton tonight. Tsk!
The picture is just part of the old workhouse/hospital extension that caught my eye in the sun this morning. Looking up you often see such things on buildings, on occasion they are interesting.
