I went to the GP yesterday and have been signed off again. We discussed my persistent insomnia and have agreed to try and kick a regular sleep routine back into touch by giving sleeping tablets another go. When waiting for my prescription to be processed at the nearby chemist shop I had a snoop around. At first it appeared strange, like no other retail outlet of its genre. All the goods on sale seemed perfectly appropriate to the setting. Something didn't seem right.
But then I found what I was looking for. Tucked away behind a pillar in a corner were two paper lanterns, water pistols, some misshapen rubber balls, solar garden lights, picnic blankets, battery operated fans and pots of bubbles pretending to be ice cream cones! I somehow knew that I would not be disappointed if I searched hard enough. These were some of the best weird pharmacy shelves that I'd ever come across!
