Everything is going mega fast at the moment. I will leave you with some bits from the week so far.
On Monday, whilst leaving Waitrose at 8am, I bought a banana for breakfast - if you must know. There were 2 Policemen and 2 security guards, with an old man. The old man was drunk as a skunk, he stank to high heaven like he had been dipped in whisky. The Police were stopping him from getting into his green old range rover. Old Man "I am jooooost going to Abbeymead, itzzz not that far, I am quite alright". Putting his box of clinking bottles in the boot. "Am off to see my Zon in Abbeymead". Abbeymead is rather a distance from Cheltenham, its the other side of Gloucester. The Policeman lurched for his keys whilst the other tried to manouvre him away from the vehicle.
On Tuesday, an older couple in front of me were looking in the window of a gentlemans outfitters (I think that is what they are called, you know, tweed sports coats and cords). The man says "oh, that is a rather snazzy tie, the one with all the orange". "tie? TIE?" his wife replied. "I dont much like the one you are talking about. I rather like the orange one". The husband looked at me and rolled his eye. "you really must wear your hearing aid, when we go out", he bellowed. "I'd rather not, it doesnt go with any of my clothes and I want people to look at my earrings. Not that damn thing".
I just want to touch on Brussels, it would be wrong not to. It all makes me feel very sad. I wish it would all just stop.
On a brighter note, I would like to wish you all a lovely Easter, be it where ever you are. And if you dont celebrate, Happy Long Weekend! Lets hope for some nice weather shall we? (its forecast as being awful).
love Sol xx
