According to recent research, 95% of female shoppers turn right as soon as they enter a department store. What a load of bull I thought ....... until I reluctantly accompanied Mecannylass on one of her expeditions to Meadowhall Shopping Centre.
Well I'll be buggered ....... the researchers are spot on !!!!
Why the bloody hell didn’t the Games Organisers lower the basketball hoops to give the wheelchair basketball players a better chance ?
It’s a small admission but a significant one. To Mecannylad’s great surprise, though I am clearly closer to the grave than the cradle, I’ve become what I’d dare to describe as being happier than ever. A feeling all the more solid for its unspectacularness.
I suppose no longer craving the spectacular yet living amongst it here in the heart of the Peak District is probably part of this subtle conundrum. Caring a lot less about what you look like, how you’re supposed to behave, whether or not you are cool, is a gift that makes getting older much more pleasurable than I ever dared hope.
Raise your glasses ..... to old age.
Mecannylad has just got back from a morning jaunt to Chesterfield in downtown Derbyshire. Funny how the Olympic Spirit seems to be still very much in full swing in this godforsaken hole.
Lots of strange people wandering around .... struggling to speak English .... mainly wearing gaudy lycra tracksuits.
Mind it’s been like that ever since I can remember.
