I'd Rather Be Shopping

At used book stores

On Charing Cross Road.

It's just a dreary, gray, autumnal, British Isles kind of day.

Puts me in mind of London in March, 1980, in the early morning; rushing to catch the train that would take us to the hovercraft at Dover, destination Calais.

Yes, thank you.

I will have another cup of tea.

Unless that was a Guinness I saw in the fridge...


  1. I wish we'd taken you to Brackley instead, last summer. then you'd be thinking of leaden skies over attractive small Oxfordshire market town instead of grubby London. Possibly.

    But if you want to come on over I'll get the guiness in. :-)

  2. I have a couple of Guinni in the fridge. I'll save some for Thursday, if you like. :)
