Goodmorning Good Folk
Well.. what a morning already!
Having gone to the cupboard like old mother Hubbard and found it bare first thing this morning... I had no choice but to venture out to kill a fatted calf.. (or carton of Covent Garden Soup) to bring home for my ailing child and myself! Beloved not due home till silly time tonight having to take his 420 children to a carol concert. Not all his.. I hasten to add!
Now considering I have not set foot in the metropolis for a week I was a little anxious and wary of going out into the tidal wave of frenzied shoppers so, I reckoned that if I got to Waitrose at 8.30.a.m , a 10 minute walk from home, I could avoid the crowds.. do a supermarket grab and be home to administer clementines and love to my child a.s.a.p!
Well.. it was a little nervewracking.. I can tell you.. just negotiating the hill into town.. I felt very light headed and even a bit agoraphobic having not been outside properly for some time.
I kept my head down and headed on to Waitrose.. en route espieing some lovely decorated windows and kicking myself for not bringing my camera for a photo opportunity! Incidentally.. have you ever tried kicking yourself? Not easy without falling over!
Soon arrived at bright lights of Waitrose and grabbed basket to do battle with other early shoppers.. it was at this moment that I was overcome with the worst tickly cough which results in me going blind and demented with simultaneous coughing and sneezing! Still.. it cleared the shoppers who gave me a wide berth.. and I continued with streaming eyes in determined fashion. As I did a wobbly swerve into the fruit and veg section.. who should I come eye to eye with (well not exactly.. he is 6' something and I am 5'6" so it was more eye to chest)..... NICHOLAS CAGE no less!!!!
My immediate thought was ' pinch cheeks..hold tummy in, look healthy girl' as here was my moment with the rather gorgeous Mr Cage!
If I hadn't looked like the wreck of the Hesperus and Mr Cage hadn't had a very pretty lass and child in tow, oh and I wasn't already spoken for.. all these minor details.. who knows what could have happened! LOVE amongst the brassicas!
Well seeing this rather gorgeous man certainly perked me up but it also threw me off course and I completely forgot about the rest of my shopping list.. so came home with strange selection of food which will never make a meal.. icing sugar, humous, and a bottle of Benylin.
P.s Thanks so so much for ALL your friendly comments of late.. I read them all and love them all..
I will try and get the Christmas Giveaway posted on blog v soon.. otherwise it will be an Easter Giveaway !
