- Had an interesting conversation with a lady at the park this morning in which I didn’t say a thing! She pointed at Pepper, “Is that a Norwich Terrier? Do you know how I can tell?” I opened my mouth to answer, but she provided all the details and didn’t require a response. “This is a lovely park isn’t it? There’s lots of shade and I have friends nearby so I can go have coffee.” Blah, blah, blah…then she said, “Well, we must get on” as if I had been holding her up! “Have a nice afternoon”, I ventured to say. She raised her hand in farewell and didn’t say a word.
Had a lovely time with Steve and Peps at Aldeburgh, Sussex today. With its shingle beach, quaint houses, huge gulls and weathered boats it was a great chance to take lots of photos. There was a hundred yard queue at the fish and chop shop so it must be a good spot. However, we made do with sandwiches and cherries on the beach – bonus – no sand in the food!
I’m on a roll today – should take up blogging instead of boring Facebook with my views on the world. I went to Reading yesterday to return some wallpaper. There should be an easier way to view all the variety of patterns and colours available rather than bringing home an irregular shaped sample torn off the roll or a huge book that won’t stay open at your colorway? Perhaps, B&Q et al should sell (for like a £1) packages of precut wallpaper samples in certain themes or hues? Do you think TV shows like the Dragon’s Den might me interested? Or as a quilter I could paste all the squares onto the wall and create a new kind of decorating trend.
