More Shopping


Sorry PLG - here's your lovely box of flotsam you sent on our living room window sill. It has pride of place next to a box of old beachcombed ceramic dolls heads and marbles I found on the Thames and one of Hazel's many pencil sharpeners.
I did some more shopping today but didnt find much. The library sale had a few tatty CD's including an 80's triple pack with a DVD included. Also songs featured on adverts over the years in another double. These are all things for me and I should be getting presents for Hazel and Archie! I did buy a couple of things but can't tell you because they read this and it would spoil the surprise.
The friendly woman in the charity shop remarked on how blustery it was but not as cold as December normally is. I agreed, adding it was quite mild and I felt overdressed in my overcoat and scarf. This started her off about Christmas in general and how she'll be glad to see the back of it. I agreed and adopting my Victor Meldrew persona I suggested it was a racket and costs too much money. Oh yes, and all the cards you have to buy and the presents and the food! Cor, lummy what a couple of old grumpy codgers!
Not much in the post- just one card for Hazel and a Trailfinders catalogue. Yes, a cruise round the melting ice caps would be most illuminating I'm sure and would get us away from all this Xmas lark!

I'm not very good at parlour games so don't expect much from me Jon! I'm not the least bit weird in any way so would find it hard to come up with even one weird thing about myself ( I expect Hazel would disagree ).

I don't believe it - you with your artistic imagination n all. Ask Archie to do it, 'cos I bet he's been taking notes and has a large animated archive of dad shaped weirdness!

Archie has far too much imagination if you ask me - he's even seeing "ghosts" around the house now. I blame puberty!

"ghosts" ??? That was me padding out to the loo in the middle of the night...

That's a long way for you to travel Jonathan! By the way your big parcel arrived yesterday in one piece - thanks very much! If we had a tree I'd put it underneath but the tree is in the outside loo!
