I get up and make a bacon sandwich. A nice one, not just bacon, but some lettuce, tomatoes and such. I ponder what I’m going to do with my morning.
Outside it is wet.
I have a wander around the garden anyway.
slowly getting wet feet as the damp soaks into the trainers.
I check the ever growing natstourshions. They have gone mad.
Are the any plants left under them?
Where has the apple tree gone?
Even the garden next to the garage is doing well.
I open up the composter, which at one point was full. But now it seems
Like an endless pit. Where have all those slugs gone to?
The nastourshions have also started taking over the drive.
And with that I get some bags, put my coat on and head into town by foot.
I go to spec savers, only they can’t see me this weekend, so I book an early Friday appointment. As I wander around I notice
they sell Babycham! Wow what a throw back!
I go in and out of some shops, the bank , Wilcos, and the Greengrocer. I also visit the flower shop which has some bamboo plants for £2 each, which is cheap, really cheap. I head into Jessica’s cafe, which is on the opposite side of the Jessica’s the grocers, and a bit hidden away. I have a cup of tea and a piece of New York Cheese Cake.
If I’d seen these though before the cheese cake I would have had these.
As it happens the cheese cake was devine.
So my thoughts whilst sitting here. Shoe Zone pay £1000 in rent a month.
Now that is a lot of shoes to sell to pay the rent before all the other things. Do we really buy so very many?
Next to the cafe is Cannock’s Aldins cave. Don’t go in here if you do not want to spend money. It used to be spread over several market stalls inside.
And behind this café at the back of the market is another secret market that is only open on a Saturday that no one goes to because it is that secret.
Yep it was delicious.
And yes I did enter the Aldins cave.
The Who, either on DVD or vinyl! It was though time to get the bus home.
After all it was raining and the bags were heavy.
I’ve come to love this bus. One day I will do the whole ring.
Perhaps it is because the bus drops me off at the end of my drive though.
I get home and take the shopping out of the bags.
We are all egged up again.
And we have entertainment for tonight.
We also have bamboo. All I need now is a panda if this stuff grows this time. I take the washing out of the machine and get ready for my mom to be dropped off. She is late, again.
We get to the baths for 2pm and
After swimming she wants to have a cup of tea and suggest we go into town so I can get some more bamboo plants as well. And so we end up at Jessics again.
I try Firecracker Lobster crisps. But hey they are not wonderful and also the scotch eggs have all gone, yes all of them!
Back at home I’ve ended up with a rain forest.
And with that I rest for the rest of the afternoon.
I put on the PS4 and play Fallout 4. It’s been a while, where did I get to.
I send off my meter readings as its the end of the month. I’ve used 220 units of electricity and 26 units of gas.
And so I sit in the retro room, turn on the Dolby surround amp, turn it up and shut the door. I watch the Born Ultimatum I got for 95p earlier in the day.
