I know – what a daft question!
Beloved had to make a mercy dash to PC World for a spare part and granddaughter no. 3 (who is aged 3) and I went along too.
PC World is right next door to Staples.
“Which shop shall we go in?” I asked. “The computer shop?”
“Or the pens and paper shop?”
Well what can I say? There was no hesitation, no thinking about it – I was so proud!
PC World didn’t have the part he needed so he came into Staples while we were still browsing to see if they had it. They didn’t. So he went off to Curry’s.
We carried on browsing. She insisted on checking out every single aisle, poor me - not.
By the time we came out, he was waiting in the car. Had he been waiting long? Probably. But where stationery is involved, time loses all meaning.
This is some of our loot! I didn’t buy any notebooks (Izzy bought the tiny notebook), but I did treat myself to some gel pens.
Then when we got home five Chinooks flew over one after another. I grabbed my camera quick, but couldn’t get a decent shot. They’re a rare sight here.
And we had the tree done last week. Poor thing is completely denuded. Not a single leaf left.
This was the best picture I got while it was being done.
If you look closely you can just about see a man. There were two of them and I didn't dare go out and start taking photos in case I distracted them so I took this one from my office window!
They did a great job and cleared up every last leaf which means, this autumn at least, we won't have to!
