Sweet dreams Pat.
Reggie and I went out to make the most of the sunny weather this morning. Beautiful sunshine, calm breezes, pleasant people, to take some time in the peace and quiet to remember those who fight to keep us safe (and who get caught up in conflict with no way of escape)....
... imagine the hell on earth when I decide to nip in to a garden centre on my way home and find this
No sign of the garlic I went in for but floor to ceiling of Christmas tat. They even had cut trees for sale.
What a contrast to the beautiful images of those choosing to spend today remembering.
It was a complete sensory overload. I can't begin to imagine trying to go inside with a child who might struggle with the noise, lights, the crowds...
... thank dog for Internet shopping. As awful as it is not to support local shops I'm afraid til March I will happily stay away.
Didn't get my garlic.
