Dear California sunshine, Three cheers for you!
Dear Aqua Fit class teacher, Thank you for working us hard yesterday – apparently you had the idea that some of the group might have eaten a bit too much chocolate the night before. Not me, of course… 😉
Dear book club book, I nearly gave up with you because I was getting a bit bogged down with all the information in the early chapters that was necessary for us to have in order to understand the actions of the characters later on, but I’m glad I kept going because it turned into a good story.
Dear local supermarket, Yesterday morning the display of pumpkins outside was still the same as it was on Wednesday, though slightly depleted, but going inside was like walking into a different place… Gone were the shelves and display stands of Hallowe’en goodies. Gone was the usual ‘supermarket smell’ of fresh fruit and veg near the entrance. Overnight they had been replaced by Christmas items and the air had a definite scent of cinammon and festive cheer. Your staff must have been at work from very early on to have achieved such a change and were also still working as I tried to navigate past the end of the festive section. It was a hive of industry and I overheard them discussing what time they should arrive the next morning – four a.m. perhaps or would 5 a.m. be early enough? I was amazed at how quickly it was all happening – clearly there wasn’t a moment to lose in the battle to part us from our cash before Christmas.
Dear self, Remember that the clocks here in America go back this weekend.
Have a good Friday.
