Shufflers & Goppers @ 21:17


I really don't know what it is with people today. They just seem to be walking about in a trance most of the time. Especially at the supermarket.

Today was no exception. In the Tescos in Rugby today, zoefruitcake and I needed to navigate a shop full of shuffling gawpers like in some weird Krypton Factor cum Day of the Dead assault course. This seems to happen more and more these days. People just seem to stand about gawping or shuffle really slowly around the place with no consideration for those who also share the same space as others.

Its the same on the road. Drivers these days seem to have this "couldn't care less about other drivers" attitude. Courtesy seems to be lacking.

I blame Thatcherism and Punk. You'd never have this with Prog rockers and the SDP.

For an old biddy with a bad hip I can move really quickly . . . . especially if I spot a bargain!!! And in a craft/wool shop I'm like a tornado!!!

ps I can make more headbands but I'm limited to certain colours as I used Stylecraft Gypsy which is 100% nylon and I have to get hold of discontinued stock because, in their wisdom, the company no longer make it. I've got that dark blue, two shades of a rust mixture, a mixed green, a pale blue, white and pink mixture, a light beige, a dark fawn and a purple! (Just in case you want to butter up the future M-i-L)!!! (I'm making plans to make wedding hair decorations too) Hint, hint!!! :-D Drawing the line at the crochet lace wedding dress though - the last one I made was about 40 years ago and it was so much work I vowed never again!

Happy New Year!

I do want to butter her up, I'm never sure what she thinks of me!
I think a purple might be the most versatile, could I order one please? Got any photos of the hair decorations?
