I'm not getting out and about much these days. I make it too the museum, hobble home via Tesco and flop. A saunter around town if I must is all I can manage at the moment. Today I unwound myself from the heater under the desk and gathered the rubbish and dumped it outside, as I did so I noticed the shop on the corner still had some tins on show, I had noticed them the other day, and raced slowly upstairs to get some cash.
This shop was once selling only second hand furniture, he cleared houses and bought in stuff from self employed folks making bookcases and the like on the side (as far as I can see). Now however while he still does this I notice his shop is stuffed with odds and ends, almost everything in the world can be found there somewhere! This is something to remember, and I wished I had time to look around as I went up there for two large tins of fruit.
I took the Pear Halves and Apricot halves today but will go back for more. Just look at the size of the tin! For these catering sizes he charges £1:25 and as supermarket stocks cost from 25p to £1 this is indeed a bargain. Naturally I checked the dates, 2017 is the sell by date and having eaten some apricots I am well pleased. I need to eat more fruit and as the Aussies are keeping most of it down there this is excellent for
