Monday's child is full of woe

TTWC 2007.62
"I don't believe it", she said, channelling Victor Meldrew. The Salvos store at Kippax is closing this Friday.

TSS should never go on a fiscal fast and tempt me to her moderate ways again if this is the result! That's 3 op-shops closed in a month. Coincidence that it is the same month The Not Shopping Sherpa is born? I think not!

I may just have to take up Mandie's and Gillian's offers to visit them. Tongala has the advantage of closeness and I could buy more stuff because it could easily be transported but England has the advantage of containing no near relatives. What a choice?


COOK FROM THE CUPBOARD

BREKKIE: Porridge with stewed rhubarb - it's a taste sensation. In a bit of a rush, so no coffee this morning. Fully found workshop all day at a well-funded institution, so I grabbed a cup of decent plunger coffee before we began.

MORNING TEA: Excellent plunger coffee and a slice of very rich fudge brownie with nuts. There was also shortbread with pistachios and ANZAC biscuits and it was tempting to slip a couple into my handbag. I didn't.

LUNCH: Selection of gourmet style sandwiches. Fruit - pineapple, honeydew melon, rockmelon, strawberries and kiwi fruit. Glass of orange juice. Coffee.

DINNER: Vegetable curry and rice. Orange.

Never liked that one much anyway...

(That's me trying to make myself feel better and in a panic that there's still 5 days to go and maybe all the other op shops will be closed by Sunday!)

Terribly jealous of both the rhubarb for brekkie and the sumptuous lunch :-/

Hmmm, yes, certainly more than mere coincidence, methinks.

I love ruhbarb season, can't say the same for porridge though!
