Morriston or Morrisons?
Saturday, May 08, 2021
I really felt today that I wanted to walk 'to' somewhere rather than just walk. Realistically my options boiled down to turn right out of Base Camp and walk to Morriston - the high street area about a mile and a half away. Or turn left and head towards Morrisons the supermarket over at the retail park - a mile away. I was inclined towards Morriston even though I went just yesterday to get my glasses. I figured I could 'mooch around' the shops, look at the architecture etc.
But it was lashing down all day. Mooching around isn't much fun when the rain is driving down. Morrisons the supermarket at the retail park it was then. I needed milk anyway. I did try to resist the yellow sticker bargains. Mostly I succeeded. Let's just say I'm a work in progress. £5.17 worth for 82 pence. Including a large apple pie for 24 pence that I need to fit into one of the freezers. I couldn't make it for that. Daughter and youngest son are coming for a weekend in July so I figured it would do for dessert one evening. Not having a sweet tooth I don't usually bother but they'll enjoy it.
Walking back and a car went through a puddle - the resulting spray absolutely drenched me. If only I'd had some shower gel with me I could have had a wash at the same time. When I got back home, Cook wanted to go through the fridges and freezers and work out what to use when. No chance. I was cold and wet and the only thing I was interested in was drying off and changing into some nice comfy PJ's. Mañana cocine, mañana.
I bet this was in The Wetlands.
