Singing after dark
Called in for a browse round the Hospice Shop when I nipped out after lunch, and bagged a bargain - a brand new pair of leather shoes for £6. Brilliant!
Down to Alnwick this evening for a meal at Carlo's, a supermarket shop and - the main reason for going - to exchange a pot of paint at the DIY store. That done, we purchased some more paint, this time for the ceiling in the living room. Not that we'll be ready to paint anything for a while yet.
As we left the store, we were surprised to hear several birds singing their hearts out, though it was well after dark. Maybe not that surprising as the whole area around the DIY store is very brightly lit, tricking the birds into thinking it's still daylight...
