Retail Therapy

Every other Tuesday we take my mother to the hairdresser's. She'd rather not go- because she hates leaving the house- but if she insists on maintaining a hairstyle that's been out of fashion for half a century it's the price she has to pay.

We're rather in favour of the arrangement because it gives us three quarters of an hour to visit the charity shops in Paddock Wood. Today we made the best haul ever. To wit:

An electric juicer

A pottery bowl

A CD of music by the Kinks

2 CDs of 20th century English music- Gurney, Bridge, Finzi, Taverner.

And- best of all- a very fine 19th century print of St Michael's Mount with boats in the foreground, after Clarkson Stansfield.
