In Greenwich I saw an elderly lady who made me smile. She was walking with a stick very slowly and we passed on the crossing. She was carrying a book and I managed to glimpse the title-"Walking London" I have that book-it is full of interesting walks. I was so impressed with her and how she was out and about despite it obviously being difficult for her.
Oh Christmas, why do you come so soon after Halloween? I am sure there must be other things I should be doing first. Cakes in the bakers where I bought a coffee. I do like it when you buy a coffee that is the right temperature to drink when you buy it. My camera unfortunately had a little drink of coffee-I dropped my shopping bag and, as I fiddled around with coffee, camera and handbag, I bent down with the coffee in the same hand as the camera. Whoops! I think it is alright though.
Look at this poor badger. I know I like stuffed dead things but I feel sorry for this one. He has been made into an umbrella stand, forever growling at the dripping umbrellas in the hall. This stall is the one I always take at least one photo of. I may have mentioned it before. The stall holder gets all of her things from French flea markets so it is quite different to other stalls. There is always a lot of religious iconography, embroideries of birds, weird bakolite light fittings and always some form of taxidermy. Last time she had a fox. I quite want a fox but am always put off by the £100 plus price tag.
Off to a fireworks party in half an hour. Andy has bought some kind of enormous firework which is waiting in the car. It looks quite scary.
