Just five more days before lekythen and I go hear Philip Pullman talk about his new book at the Sheldonian Theatre. I was reminded about this all to clearly has I walked up George Street in blazing autumn sunshine – in weather reminiscent of this day in 1999 when I sat in my shirt sleeves in Central Park whilst others skated beneath a backdrop of autumn colours and skyscrapers – to see this tethered above Debenhams…

Spent a bit too much money today – had to restrain my urge to buy a Wacom graphics tablet (I’ll wait till I’ve persuaded these people to let me redesign their website and I’ve thus got a nice new *powerful* laptop *drools*) since I needed to get a new winter coat.

It’s nice, long, below the bum, cream coloured coat which is very soft to the touch – which I like – coat, kind of similar to the one which it’s replacing if I think about it. I shouldn’t really begrudge the 60 quid really considering that this last one I bought, let me think – in Norwich when I was doing that work experience for Anglia Multimedia – and that was in … 1996 … really?! – so that makes it seven years old…

…anyway I treated myself whilst I was there to a new shirt – claret coloured and soft, and with that luxurious November/Christmassy feel… 🙂
