When I Need You

I gave 'Henry's Cafe' another go this week. They've FINALLY learned that gun metal grey walls don't make for the warmest of welcomes and have moved from monochrome to muted technicolour, but it's still a world away from the cheery buzz and warm welcome of its predecessor Berties.

Whilst there I overhead an elderly couple bemoaning the fact that The Seasonal Shop had closed ("such a shame"..."obviously wasn't making money"...). I was going to explain how the concept of a seasonal shop works, but didn't - just imagine the joy on their faces when it bursts back into life for summer.

Meanwhile, ever since I mentioned the Leo Sayer-alike, he is now there virtually every time I'm in Waitrose. I am convinced that he is stalking me (and the rest of the supermarket). Still, at least he hasn't started singing. Yet.
