Scenes from provincial life

Things I have never done:
Drunk coffee in Starbucks
Eaten anything from Pret a Manger. According to their website the nearest is in Bristol
Eaten a Tiramisu Kit Kat

Shops I like which are thirty miles away:
Jigsaw, Warehouse, Monsoon, Schuh
Even further: Whistles, Hobbs

Things I couldn't buy without the internet:
Quality knitting yarns
Books I really want

Er, quite a few more things. But I live in a nice place where people say 'Good morning' to each other. You can see from today's posts that a zipping-about person gets bored when it's too hot to zip. I will now do something useful by listing a few books.
