Indeed. It's the first day of Spring though you'd never think it - it's jolly well freezing. I've just been out for my daily constitutional - a walk down to the shops as far as the other end of town and back. In order to remedy the chill I purchased a carton of tomato and basil soup made by a company called Avonmore. It's damn good - as a matter of fact it's almost as good as home made stuff and infinitely superior to stuff from a packet. Only people who live on run-down council estates and who wear their pyjamas all day eat packet soup.
I got some fresh bread rolls to go with it - yum. It's a bit of a soup kitchen luncheon but it saves me the bother of making something. Mrs. BP is coming home from school early as the place was burgled again and the police wanted everybody out so that they can collect fingerprints. She's delighted and so are all the kids.
I also bought a new toothbrush - one of those electrical affairs that buzzes and cleans one's gnashers more thoughly than a normal toothbrush. My old one gave up the ghost so I threw it away but not before I removed most of the electronics. There are several leds and a couple of tiny switches that I'm sure I can find a use for.
All in all a most productive day. I think I'm being brought for dinner tonight as well. It's a local place run by an old mate and some French guy. I had a look at the menu as I was passing and I might try the pheasant.
