1) In the fabric shop, I overhear the assistant saying to the customer ahead of me that she really must return and show off the garment she’s planning to make. She’s buying sparkly bits, and ribbons, and all sorts of other interesting bits and pieces. I’d quite like to see it too 🙂 .
2) She suddenly spots me, partially hidden amongst the sea of umbrellas, and comes running.
3) Sometimes hand-written shopping lists are just better than their electronic counterparts.
