Well, I have to say, Darrell has been absolutely brilliant throughout this last meltdown, doing all our essential shopping in Aldi and Iceland ……….
……. but yesterday, with said meltdown easing and all non essential shops open he decided to treat himself to a little non essential retail therapy in the charity shops of Evesham.
He said town was pretty busy, all the cafe’s and pubs had open air seating outside and there seemed to be a buzz of excitement all around, It’s hard to believe that we’ve been more or less shut in since just before Christmas and now, relatively free once more, we’re already a quarter of the way through the year!
And did he return home triumphant? You bet his cute little cotton socks he did …….
…….. in making the considered purchase of ……. I’m not really quite sure how to describe it, a rustic animal knit, embellished with a fox/mouse/badger (???) it’s hard to say what, on the front, with a lovely cable stitch feature running down the arms……….
…… for the princely sum of 99p from the Extracare shop. He really thinks he looks pretty special in it and it’s something he’ll definitely be packing when we can all finally and legally go over to see Hugh, his best friend and mentor in all things Haute Couture and a la mode, at Le Chicken Coup for our annual Eurovision Song Contest get together (last year accepting), our televisual and cultural highlight of the year later in May. He’s one happy bunny …….. welcome to the new normal and (fingers crossed) freedom!
