I admit, I did have it in mind to look at sofas. And, after I’d done enough preliminary research to eliminate one shop altogether, we got as far as sitting on a couple of them (sofas, not shops), looking through several books of fabric samples, talking to a nice assistant called Sara and ordering a sample of the only fabric we liked. Luckily, we totally agreed on that. We’re good that way, luckily enough.
I also managed to scoot round a department store – the same one where we liked the sofa – and not like any clothes enough to consider trying them on. I quite liked a Jaeger coat, all £350-worth of it, but still not enough to put it on and I’d have to absolutely woo-hoo-hoo adore any garment for that. There was the odd dress I quite liked, but still not enough for the price. What has happened to clothes prices recently? Is it the Brexit effect? Anyway, I did find a few possibilities later in another shop but our exertions in the sofa department had worn us out and we didn’t even stay in Norwich for lunch, but scooted back home and ate sausage rolls from the deli. With my bread-and-butter pickle and, obviously, brown sauce.
Tim’s laptop, which is only 14 months old, seems to have gone totes awry, and won’t turn on or anything. He’s less anxious about the whole thing than I’d be if it were mine, though actually there isn’t that much essential on mine, nowadays, that isn’t backed up. All the same, I’ve a couple of things that are going on the Cloud right now, just in case.
