Options Belgian Choc drink, a new mattress for Lou's bed from Argos and two hand towels from Dunhelm Mill to go in the downstairs cloakroom. The whole process has left me tired, uninspired and devoid of creativity. It's not a day's activity that I want to repeat for a very long time. What's astounding is how many people describe trudging around retail outlets as their favourite leisure activity. It beggars belief!
