Here’s something I haven’t done for a while!
Hubby had a bit of shopping to do in town today so we walked up, taking the dog.
I walked on to the coffee shop, taking a bench while I waited for him.
Maggie sat down and waited patiently too.
Town was quite busy today.
Being Market Day and as most of the kids are on school holidays now, I wasn’t surprised.
I overheard a couple of conversations which suggested the adults were on Nanny watch with the kids whilst the parents were at work. One little girl was a real grizzleguts, but Nanny told her to sit down and be quiet as She was in charge now.
I found this on google and think it just about covers it:
Maggie attracted a lot of attraction and fuss again. It’s amazing the number of people who greet her my name which starts the tail wagging then rolling over and feet up, belly exposed for a tummy rub. Of course she bumped into one of her ‘friends’ today and was rewarded with her usual biscuit.
After the wedding on Saturday, I found myself noticing just how many people in the 20 to 30 age group smoke tailor mades or roll ups, whereas between the age of 30 and 40, roll ups and the E cigarette puff machines are preferred. It’s like time has gone backwards and cigarettes are only for the young trying to impress (as it was in my teens to some extent). Come to think of it, the young are probably the ones who can afford it if advertised salaries are anything to go by.
As an ex smoker of some 40 a day, I tend not to be very popular with those who enjoy the weed. I have no objection to anyone choosing to smoke what we used to call ‘cancer sticks’, I would just prefer it to be not around me, especially if I was there first, so I was glad to be on the opposite side of the road today.
I also cannot understand why anyone would want to pay a small fortune for flavoured E-sticks, some of which generate more smoke than standard cigarettes.
I have often dreamt that I started smoking again, it being so real, I have awoken with the Guilt Trip From Hell, disgusted with myself for lighting up.
When we smoked, a pack of 20 would set us back around £1.47. These days it’s in excess of £8, so I couldn’t afford the habit, even if I wanted to. Hubby had his last smoke the week before we got married, I had my last the day before, though confess to a single puff at the Christmas party that year and hated it. Neither of us have regretted quitting.
