It's nice and sunny here today and the bus to Uxbridge was full of chatty good humoured people for a change!
I love earwigging other people's conversations. It's another version of people watching which I do whenever I stop for lunch out- can be very educational/entertaining.
One girl, it seems was all ready to float down the aisle only to have discovered her fella in bed with her best mate on the day she was finalizing the reception arrangements at the groom's home. An old dear turned to her and told her she was far too good for him and said how she hoped she'd kneed him in the meat an two veg.....I'll leave you to decipher
The whole bus burst out laughing and applauding
I bought my self a lippy (lipstick) to use up a Boots voucher b4 it expires 2moro and topped up my Oyster travel card and battled through the crowd, popping into every clothes shop in turn and examining the costume jewellery hanging, stopping at all the "gift idea" counters for some inspiration
I think I've figured out most of the Christmas prezzies but haven't bought them as yet......just in case I spot something else my next trip, but at least I have all bases covered now. The little grey cells will retain what item is in what shop... I hope
til I go again. And I've seen some very unusual cards I'll get for Pete, Jackie and John and Vicki.
And eureka! I found them! A pair of purple cord bootleg-cut jeans! I have been looking since last November!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! EVERYWHERE! NADA!
Just happened to make a trip into Debenhams, not actually looking for them you understand, and there they were, calling to me. Well......... they had to be bought didn't they
And the waist was slightly loose so I HAD to get a belt didn't I
Did another circuit then double backed as I remembered seeing some nice belts in Peacocks. Purple leather one with an ornate black buckle £6! marked down to £3 for a sale. Sorted
Had a nice lunch in M&S café "people watching", bought Pete some chocolate ginger in Thornton's Chocolatiers, paid a visit to the rest room (being polite here for a change) and got the bus home..........................
Only to find F1 was STILL ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So I'm now blogging with Robbie on my headset to block it out
having tucked into a couple of crumpets
So much for avoiding the racing
at least I got a lot of walking in
