Right ... back from the city ... had both a flu and a pneumonia jab 'cos I'm hypothyroid and therefore eligible for the pneumo one early. Didn't know that but I'm glad the nurse did. I arrived early an hour early 'cos of the bus timetable but was seen early with no queuing. I do love the NHS
I popped into M&S and treated myself to a nice top for being A Brave Girl and bough some 'sushi' for my lunch.
While I was sitting on the bench waiting for the bus home an 'older lady' (well, older than me) walked along the line asking people if they ate leeks. The person next to me said No, but I said 'Yes' and she explained that she'd grown too many in her garden so she'd wrapped some up and brought them into the city and thought she'd see if anyone wanted any.
She said she 'wasn't selling them' but a small donation for Cancer Research would be appreciated. I said I'd love some leeks and made a donation ... 5 lovely fresh young leeks pulled from the ground this morning ... they'll be lovely with the piece of gammon I'm cooking tomorrow Some people looked at her as if she was bonkers, talking to strangers in the street .......... but look at us, we talk to strangers on here all the time, don't we? And we're not bonkers, are we .........................???
