I wanted some florists' oasis so drove to Loughborough with Basil. We got to Willowbrook Retail Centre which was packed out with cars. Not only that, there were queues for all the shops that were open. It seemed ridiculous.
I gave up the idea of going into a shop and took Basil and myself to Dishley Pool. Slightly busier than usual walking round the perimeter but both Basil and I relished being out in the fresh air. Extra shows a reed bending in the wind.
