Freezing Early Saturday
Long before i was awake this morning I trudged out towards Sainsburys. Yesterday I went round the shops for the things I forgot, this morning I went back for the other things I forgot. I really must get used to writing these things down. Of course of I write them down I forget the list!
The sun had yet to rise, that came at just on eight this morning, and the gray sky did not ease the cold wind blowing from the south east, neither did it offer much light. The lack of light made the lit up shop windows appear cheery,the main one in sight cheers many people I think. This shop has been here for some time now, not that I ever notice anyone going in or out, and on the occasions when the proprietor is noticed standing outside, cigarette in hand, I become aware that she has not had much use for what is on offer for a while, since round about 1958 I guess! Online sales must be good! Actually they are not, I have just found the website and it is 'under reconstruction' and nothing is available. Hmmm... just who is sneaking in I wonder. Maybe if I set up a camera opposite...
Coming out of Tesco with the remembered forgotten items I grabbed a shot of one of the two fruit stalls in the market. It was the bright lights cheerfully failing to detract from the icy wind while the staff grabbed as much cash as possible from the customers. I prefer the other stall myself.
I have remained glued to the laptop since attempting to avoid the ironing that remains and keep warm. I must give in and do something now.
OK, hours later and I failed to do anything but eat and no watch football while also 'discussing' Brexit with brexiteers. When I said they had no argument to put forward one immediately replied 'We don't need to as we voted for it.' Hmmm...
