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
