Well, maybe go out bit later in the day? Though days are getting shorter, it starts getting lighter again in a month\'s time!

Relax?
Fay Slimm. said:

A familiar feeling to many including myself -this need to get out and about - weather permitting - Just a thought though - - perhaps my post today may be of some help - I wrote of one way of seeing self differently - -have a peep at the verse called Understanding and let me know what you think - - - thanks for your honest posting.

orchidee said:

A fine write RB. Ask a politician to blow up your tyres next time. They\'re always full of hot air, so it\'s said!

Clinging On
orchidee said:

Well, the current PM goes to a church only 2 miles from me (when she\'s at home on Sundays, that is). We\'ll have to meet up over coffee after church and hob-nob, and discuss the state of the nation, she and I!

Playing on my bogie
Goldfinch60 said:

Yes I had them as well, back in the 1950\'s. So dangerous when thinking back but so much fun at the time - no health and safety then.

My friends and I had one just like that! A fine write RB.

Beautiful write with which I totally agree.

Annoying Attraction
Leisa Niamh said:

So true! Ive lost count of the rubbish Ive bought and the time I\'ve wasted rummaging through those centre aisles.

That new life does bring an inner peace which will get easier as time goes by. Enjoy every moment.

On Time
Goldfinch60 said:

I too hate being late so I am normally early to most things, the only problem is that being punctual can be so lonely!

Annoying Attraction
orchidee said:

Erm, nor me really, not been there, though we have one in near our town centre. Ohh I always go to the 99p shops (do they exist now?). These £1 shops are far too expensive. heehee.

Annoying Attraction
Goldfinch60 said:

I have never been to Aldi so know nothing about the central aisle.

Annoying Attraction
Fay Slimm. said:

Ah ha - - I know what you mean my friend !! That central isle is a true magnet to all who enter the store. An engaging read as a good reminder to let the saved pennies stay intact.

Broken Coffee Maker
Goldfinch60 said:

Of course it is a big issue.
Saying that though we have tea in the morning, proper tea mind you, tea leaves into the pot, freshly boiled water, stirred, left for two minutes, milk into the cups (always milk first) and then the wonderful tea poured through a strainer. We have Rwanda/Burundi tea - it is wonderful.

Broken Coffee Maker
orchidee said:

Yep, a pot of tea it will have to be - for now anyway! A whole pot?! lol. A good write RB.

Oxford
orchidee said:

Yes, a fine write. I tried climbing St Mary\'s Church Tower when in Oxford. Too scary. I never reached the top. Don\'t like heights, nor \'see through\' steps. Had to see the view on You Tube.

Oxford
Goldfinch60 said:

As I said yesterday I go to Oxford regularly to go to the Ashmolean Museum - I could quite happily live in that place.

Oxford
Fay Slimm. said:

Such a good summary of that means Oxford today and of course days of yore too. First rate rhyming keeps the Oxford scene even more in focus and thanks for the share in your memorable meal too. A most interesting read.

Shivering Shadows
Goldfinch60 said:

I go to Oxford fairly regularly now and I agree with what you have written, the contrast between lives over such short distances is amazing - in this day and age it need not be so.

You took that pic standing on your head, or standing sideways? heehee.
It\' quite an atmospheric town is Oxford, I find. A good write RB.

OMG I don\'t miss the hangovers of yesterday. I\'ve been sober many years now.
