Little Apple on the bus

Here is a new friend I have made. Her name is Apple! She looks like me. Here she is on the bus.

Yesterday we went to Brighton for a bit of a shop and to catch up with my very dear friends.

Shopping was funny for me – is has been a long time since I did any of that really except for a quick nip into our little shops. I am not sure if I really liked it, I think I felt a little bit lost. I tried on 18 things in Topshop altogether (not all together) and found most things don’t fit me or look nice. I saw one denim dress I thought would definitely be a grand wardrobe staple, when I put it on – I can’t explain it but if you saw me I would be embarrassed. Maybe I am a bit old now, or a bit Mum.

The next place I went to was Boots and I had a lot of fun in there. Most of my make-up has dried up because it was about 2009 when I last bought any new make-up. I told this to a lady who was working on the L’Oreal counter in Boots and she looked at me like I must have been in prison or something.  I asked her for a peach blusher because that sounded like a nice thing to have and because I didn’t want her to think I was suspicious, but there were only a choice of four blushers so she tried to persuade me that a bright pink blusher was peach… I pretended she had convinced me but I didn’t buy it.

I did buy some nice things though and had a lot of fun in the process. I like to do eye-shadow at the moment – I think it will give me the edge.

Also in Boots I noticed a lady putting things in her handbag and dropping things on the floor. I hope she paid for those things. I gave her the benefit of the doubt.

Then I went to Tiger as I was looking for a twenty minute egg timer to help Rose tell the time a bit better and notice when we are running out of time before we need to go out, things like this. Unfortunately there were none of those left, and the lady said they weren’t really a priority to get back in, so that doesn’t sound very optimistic, but I did find some amazing giant wool and bought a couple of bundles of that! I will show you this soon, it’s amazing like giant blue udon noodles.

Then I got another bus and visited my friends Deb and Ben at their house and my dearest friend Snowy came too and also Mary cat, the sweetest cat, was there. We had a really really great catch up while Ben was chopping firewood and Mary was eating the plant. Lovely tea and macaroons and a chocolate coin for the road. Thanks Deb!

Then I got the coaster bus home to Seaford and ate a banana. I was pleased to have such a grand day out, but it was nice to see Rich and Rose when I got home. Rich had made a great pizza but instead of tomato puree on the base he used ketchup. It was, in the words of Rose, ‘alishus’.
