untitled.

I went to Coventry Cathedral this morning to the Remembrance day service and on the way I stopped in to the corner shop to get my poppy. I was having a quick chat to the shopkeeper and he told me that a blind poppy seller in town had his collection tin stolen. I can't believe that someone would stoop so low as to steal something like that - at the most it would have had £20? Maybe a bit more, probably not. I felt really quite sad. The service itself was nice, it adds a certain significance to the whole meaning of why we remember, when you are stood in the ruins of the cathedral bombed in the Second World War.

The nice thing about going to town on your own on a Sunday is that you then get to go guilt free shopping. Not that I really bought much, but I have lots of Christmas ideas now! I did indulge in a plate of meatballs at ikea at lunchtime though - mmm meatballs. I've no idea what they make that sauce out of (nor do I particularly want to find out) but whatever they do to it, it's very tasty!

Just got back and crashed on the sofa in front of the TV for a bit. Why is it that they've changed the mascot for Mr Muscle? Wasn't the whole point of the last guy that even weedy geeks with no muscle could clean with ease thanks to Mr Muscle power spray? Now it's this weird animated Arnold Schwarzenegger character who all the housewives are drooling over...it's just wrong. Bring back the geek, that's what I say!!

Anyway. Yes. Product based rant over.

    The experience I want to get off my chest is actually most closely related to what you’ve said but I just don’t feel inclined to confide in you.
