I was dragged out today to Huddersfield (according to the boss, the only town with a HMV shop) for a CD. A CD of the soundtrack from Labyrinth the film. I often catch myself thinking that if I didn’t have K living with me, my life would be so much calmer and quieter. I wouldn’t be traipsing out on these quests for this and that. I would be a lady of leisure, pleasing myself whether I stayed put or not. But……..would I keep as healthy? Or get as much exercise? ‘Children help to keep you young.’ is a very old saying and its true. Okay, K is no longer a child but she does keep you on your toes (literally!) in much the same way.
I took my camera with me, tried to take a shot of K trying a mask on in Clinton’s Card shop and was stopped from doing so by one of the assistants (spoil sport!) so we quickly vacated the premises sharpish and with me in a huff, muttering to myself as I went. Okay, we weren’t intending to buy the mask, but what harm was taking a picture going to do? Met J and his girlfriend outside Burger King (at last! First time I have had chance to meet her!) and she seems very nice. (that isn’t her by the way on the left of this text!)
We parted company after a meal in Burger King because he was intent on going to TopMan for some new clothes and K and I, having lot’s of experience of accompanying him on clothes shopping trips in the past, had no intentions of doing the same again. We expressed our sympathy to his girlfriend and I really ought to have advised her to get a book to read, preferably something like the Lord of the Rings which she would no doubt have been able to read from beginning to end whilst waiting for him to purchase some clothes. Instead we beat a hasty retreat to the bus station to catch a bus home.
I realised that I had not taken one single picture! So I decided we would get off the bus two stops early and take some photos of autumn colours as we walked home. so here they are!
