I met my friend today, and we had not arranged anything much. As it turned out, she needed to buy a new tv, as everything has gone digital as from the fourth of April, and she had a very old one. She also needed a laptop. So you can imagine how long it took in Comet sorting all this out, and a stand, and cover, and plugs and screen cleaner. An unbelievable amount of stuff to go with it all. So it was a relief to get out of Comet, and get to Greenwich for a little trawl around the market and a tasty lunch. Below is the current state of the site the old second hand market was on. It is now a massive hole in the ground. These Sesame Street coathangers caught my eye. They look quite impractical though.These birds are silhouettes cut from paper and stuck onto the wall of the café where we had lunch. It does a delicious all day breakfast with top quality ingredients, and also lovely cakes. I think it has music in the evenings, though I have not been.
My love affair with weird things I have no idea what to do with continues. The billiard balls are lovely, very tactile and were three for a pound! I love little cases and boxes. The bird was bought with Forest School in mind, but also because I just like it. I also bought a sheep and a small iron bedstead. Oh, and a beautiful knackered lacquered box. (How often do you get the chance to rhyme those two words?!) It looks like it should be shiny, but has this soft leather like appearance, and gold cranes flying across it.
