Quiet Street


A trip into BS1 today and Cabot Circus, Bristol's new shopping centre. I reasoned that today would be the quietest Friday of the year; it's the week before most firms' pay Friday, and it's been a very long one as most firms paid a week early for Christmas last month - so a long stretch and hardly anyone out and about unloading cash. It was just so and the place was eerily empty which made for a very peaceful saunter about. As it turns out the only item I went in for was not to be had so I bought a Cadbury's Double Decker and went home again. The theory was good, though.

I nearly bought a new griddle pan (on a whim) but it was made by Le Crueset and was mentally expensive so I moved on.

Other excitement today includes a myth busting experiment I will Blog about in a day or so, Bingo calling at 6pm, and with much drama, a swapping around of my room that involved a hammer, some dismantling and lots of re-arrangement and messing about!

I may take an evening glass of wine.

Can you expand on the "hammer, some dismantling and lots of re-arrangement and messing about!" bit (do tell!)

The telling is in the seeing; I may blog early next week about progress on the dismantling.

Don't believe you are really doing anything in there at all!

It's still work in progress!

I've seen a small ad for great interior design advice should you need help!

Hmmm - is it one of those fly by night sorts who lob in terms like feng shui and awareness?
