I ate something I had never eaten today for lunch.
It tasted of, well pretty much nothing, a bit sweet, with the texture of an apple crossed with nectarine.
I did this because Nicky and I performed our usual Ceilidh in the Supermarket this afternoon. When we get back home and start unpacking I always discover things that I have never seen in the shop before, let alone would ever consider buying.
Recent Nicky acquisitions include:
100% organic Lemon Balm & Orange Blossom Conditioner.
Lemon, Rosemary and Walnut hand and nail cream.
Triare Flower & Patchouli Hand Wash.
Warm Vanilla & Neroli Hand Wash (Yes you have a choice of hand washes in our bath room).
My recent acquisitions:
Bread with the tiger skin pattern on it.
Cheese and onion crisps.
Beer (preferably Holsten Pils) Recently they have changed the flavour of this essential item. I have written to Carlsberg to complain, but have yet to have a response.
Frozen chips (the thin ones from waitrose).
I think that I may have already mentioned that I got the wireless network sorted at home. This means that I can sit in the dining room, while Nicky is upstairs doing work for, well work. I also realised that I could print stuff on the printer upstairs, right where Nicky is working. So we can still communicate.
I spent the afternoon watching the rugby and sending printed messages to Nicky upstairs.
It was no subterranean homesick blues, but it kept me amused.
I will plant some trees, I promise, and then I will walk over the discarded paper, whilst poets pass behind me.
