Well something really pleasant did happen! I found my book tokens, after looking absolutely everywhere else, tucked in one of those absurd places you stick things in for safekeeping, and then forget. Good one, St. Anthony! (I told youse he was fab-)
I also had a funny little epiphany. Now that my old shades are deaded, I have this broad, naked vista down to Clapham Junction and beyond. (Deadly in summer, but nice, now...) I was staring out at the forty shades o'grey and thought "Ohhh, the world". It was very buzzy.
