A few things I saw on my trip to the local shops just now, 4pm on a sunny Thursday afternoon:
- The white lady behind me in the Asian supermarket bought a four pack of Scrumpy Jack cider, a bottle of wine, a small bottle of vodka and some mouthwash. I worried about her liver.
- The kids from a family from school all dressed up in their best Asian clothes were trooping off to mosque. ‘Hello miss’ they called to me. I count as a teacher because I read with a couple of them in school.
- A black lady in her dressing gown and what looked like her daughter, sitting on plastic chairs right by the pavement in their tiny front garden, enjoying a glass of orange juice.
- My kids and a whole multi-cultural group of local friends all mucking about on the church’s playground, squealing happily. Beautiful.
How are you enjoying the sunshine?
