Shopped in Ye Olde Trusty Safeway on the way back from the airport. Bought lots of goodies. (MWNN buys 'Chicken Drummers' when I'm away, I buy fish cakes when he is.)
And found, at last, something I've been searching out for a long time. Just to explain, I rarely drink coffee. For me, it's something I enjoy at the end of a very long meal with many courses and many changes of wine. But I do, occasionally, enjoy a cup of cappuccino. Partaking as I do, so infrequently, I can't justify buying a machine, so I've been looking for an instant version, with real coffee, but no added sugar, or glucose, or anything of that ilk. Today, thanks to the wonderful lady stocking the coffee shelves, I found it.
Other things happened - The Bad
Delivered MWNN safely to the airport. Well, delivered, don't know about the safely, having been rammed from behind by The Ubiquitous White Van at the roundabout just short of the airport.
Aside - do you have roundabouts in America? They're fun! A very efficient way of controlling traffic at road intersections, requiring only a lot of nerve and the sensitivity of granite to negotiate. (shall I enter now? Is that car turning off or is it coming on round? What's with the flashing lights and horn? Well you should have bloody well indicated you were coming on round shouldn't you?)
Where was I? Oh yes, rammed from behind. Not a pleasant experience. However, no-one was injured, and, as far as I can tell, the dog-waggon is ok.
Some things didn't happen - The out-of-stock
This is really a message for MWNN. (Yes, I know you're reading this in the Dublin cyber-cafe, that's why it's here. I've enabled anonymous comments, just for you sweetie.) Overtrousers, womens, small (or medium, large or anything else for that matter), Milletts, out-of-stock. Hesadevil walking dogs in torrential rain; out-of-the-question.
