Well.... life's alright... (bless a man who can use an apostrophe)
As I walked along an old haunt I found a new shop. I chatted to the girl, she and her brother are running it and they've been open 6 weeks. She said it feels like playing when your parents are out. Her brother's first purchase for the store was a turntable, which would be my brother's first purchase for a store, were we to run one together. And it is exactly the kind of store my brother and I would have - full of delicious things of deliciousness.
I found wholemeal flour that was actually wholemeal, and not white flour with bran added, and Agar Agar, which I have been searching for high and low. I was talked into buying sulfur-free apricots, which look like shrivelled up ears.
A parcel arrived in the mail. I have been enjoying the colour tutorials at Ruth's blog and had a little hiccough in the whole no buying yarn thing. What a happy accident. The colours fill me with delight.
It is my exactly second favourite kind of weather at the moment.
Happy? Thank you, yes.
