Shopping down town again.

I went shopping down town again today. I took two coats with me today, a Mac with a hood on incase it rained, and my grey fleece which is actually warmer than the Mac. I'm taking the trolley in and out of the back door now as we've got rid of the old trolley and there's room for the new trolley where the old one was near the back door. I was expecting it to rain on me today, hence the Mac, but it didn't. I set off at about 10:30am. I took a photo of St Chad's Church first, then I walked round the top path by Stowe Pool again. I took some pictures while I was round Stowe Pool. Then I went to the toilet by the Cathedral and while I was in there I had a look at my photos to see how they'd turned out because it wasn't easy to see when I was actually taking them because the light was reflecting off my tablet. After that I posted a birthday card that my Mum had bought from me and was sending to a friend called Dawn. After I'd done that I went to Holland and Barrett for some Kambucha. There were some larger ones than I usually have on a shelf and one was plum flavour which sounded nice and I was tempted to get it but I didn't. I got one of the smaller ones in ginger and lemon flavour as usual. But I might get one of the bigger ones next week. They are only £1 more expensive than the smaller ones. After that I decided it was too soon to have my lunch yet as it was still only 11:30am so I continued to do the shopping. I went into Rileys and I got strawberries, half a cucumber, some radishes for me, cherry tomatoes, mini gem lettuce, soft fruit jelly sweets and some sage and onion stuffing mix. It came to £9 something and Mum had given me a £20 note. After that I headed off towards the Oxfam bookshop but before I got there I saw the street preacher and got chatting to one of his helpers called Anne and we had a nice little chat. When I eventually got to the Oxfam bookshop I got a book about Wales which has some poems and prose in it of Welsh origin aswell as a bit about Wales intself. That cost me £1.99. Then I went over to the Sci-Fi section and I got a novel of The X-Files and another book by Anne Rice. They both cost me £1.99 each too. After that I went to the pub, 24 Market Street, and asked for a cappuccino with soy milk. The lady said she'd go and check if they had any soy milk and she came back and said that they didn't. So I said, can't you go and get some from Iceland? Aren't I cheeky?! So I went and sat down and the lady said she'd go and get the soy milk from Iceland and then she'd get me my cappuccino. It wasn't long before she was back and I had my cappuccino. I tried to make my cappuccino last for as long as possible, then ate the free biscuit that came with it. Then I went to the toilet in No. 24 before leaving. I went and found a bench by Minster Pool and I ate my sandwich and drank some of my Kambucha while watching some ducks go past. After I'd finished my lunch I went to the toilet by the Cathedral again and then set off for home. How was your day? Picture:- Lichfield Cathedral viewed from across Minster Pool.

Yes, I did have a nice day. I videod the ducks on Minster Pool. In fact I did two videos which I will be uploading to YouTube in the coming days. Today I published a video about my garden. You can take a look if you like. My YouTube link is on my profile. I hope you enjoyed your left over tuna salad and I hope you enjoy your left over fried noodles.

@oahuwriter Good morning and thank you very much. I've now published the one about the ducks on Minster Pool aswell now if you want to take a look at that one too. Sorry about the sound, I think it's the wind, but it didn't seen that windy on the day. Have a great day.

Thank you very much. I'm glad you like the picture of the church from Minster Pool. I've just published a new video to YouTube about the ducks on Minster Pool and it's the same view as that picture. Take a look at it if you want to. I'll try and take a picture of the street where I shop but there are several streets. Holland and Barrett is on one street, Rileys is on a different street, and Iceland, 24 Market Street, the Oxfam bookshop and Waterstones bookshop are all on a different street.

My day was mainly uneventful. I stepped out to the community room area to check my mailbox and noticed a bag on the giving table, so I checked it out and discovered it was a Keurig and a box of K-cups. I have a Mini Keurig, but I was sick of having to add water for every mug of coffee I wanted, so I took the Keurig B70 Platinum Single-Cup Brewer home and put the Mini in my pantry. I will use that during the colder months when I want hot chocolate.
