hello dear – did you get the things we needed? (an occasional series)

We sallied forth to the Eye Hospididdle this afternoon for perlmonger‘s occasional checkup. No doubt he will tell you himself at some point, but they don’t want to see him any more unless he has another attack of something MSish, and they say his sight is improving steadily in the afflicted eye. Which is nice (this is an understatement).

The EH is convenient located smack in the middle of Broadmead, the main shopping area in Bristol; a place we never go if it can be avoided, because it is vile. However, we took the opportunity to purchase such exciting things as bath creme, and shower gel, and underpants for Pete (lets not go *there*, ok?), and some face flannels.

And four DVDS (The Queen, V for Vendetta, Goodfellas and Children of Men), two books* (Making Money, the new Discworld, and Double Vision by Tricia Sullivan). And a really nice moss green Per Una top from M&S.

Lunch was a nice steak pasty from the Specialist Pasty Shop, or whatever they’re called, which I shall now go and record on Photocena. And supper is sossidge, which is always good, followed by home made strawberry cheesecake.

*only 2 books? Well, yes – as I currently have 12 books on the actual, physical, to-read heap, and loads more marked in our database that I want to get to.

  1. Oh that’s brilliant news, I’m really glad His Nibs’ eye is, er, looking up *groan*.
    Shame I didn’t get to see before I’m off tomorrow – do come and visit some time!

  2. Heartily recommend V and CofM for different reasons. Goodfellas a classic of course. TQ we have here from LF at the moment. I hear good things of HM as HM but it’s a pity it’s about THAT time.

    1. We’ve seen V, but only on [cough] a torrent. Ditto HMTQ, which was utterly fablious, not least for the portrayal of Blair as a complete idiot. Which of course he was.

      Amazingly, I’ve never seen Goodfellas – Virgin Megabucks were doing an offer where, if you spend 20 quid, you get the chance to buy one of a choice of about 4 for £4. I’d spent 19.97, but they let me have it!
