Popped out early yesterday morning. I needed to go to a crown post office to pay a cheque into my bank. (I don't trust the local post office to known what's what in that respect). I have to do it that way as I never go onto town to the bank. Well, it is a city really, but I think of it as town.
S tells me I wouldn't recognise it these days and wouldn't be able to find my way around. I believe her. So many investments - so many new building projects. Everything has changed.
Anyway I think I would be too scared to go into town now. The crowds make me feel more vulneraable than I usually do. The fact is I don't need to go. S does my weekly shopping in town and it is delivered free. Anything else I need I can get from the local small shops - long may they continue to serve us.
But this morning though going into the local supermarket I was amazed to find the place turned upside down because of refitting. The shelves were half empty and other shelves were inaccessible. There were no trollies to be had. Workmen outnumbered customers.
I usually do my little personal shopping on Friday mornings - but the girl at the checkout told me that the work would probably last the week-end. I don't think I can face that disorder again.
Maybe I'll go down to the Co-op for a change. Why don't I go there normally? Well, you see it's down the hill and I hate the climb back up especially if I have bags to carry.
My family has had a long association with the Co-op. My grandmother shopped there so did my mother. I would like to but that hill deters me.
Oops! Lunch is due. S has a day off today. So I'm the one to do it. My brother B wants just toasted sandwiches today. Aren't I lucky. Better get started.
Post a Comment new!
