I treated myself to some flowers on the way home: look, white cornflowers and blue scabious (an unfortunate name for a flower - can't see it catch on for girls: 'Now, Scabious, hold my hand while we crosss the road').
I must say, I have really been enjoying reading who has spotted celebs:
Jane has served Paul Newman & Joanne Woodward in the V&A shop circa 1987 (they bought a poster of Sir John Gielgud).
Rachel has seen Labour politican Robin Cook (and then she wrote a good story about not recognizing Boby Robson - mind you, I doubt I would have)
Lesley has seen Sigourney Weaver! (that is cool, but she has a good story about her dad and the Rolling Stones)
Friko has seen Alan Bennet (and, so have I! Celebrity snap!)
Jinksy has seen Zoe Wanamaker (and so have I! Celebrity snap II - she was ... slightly worse for the wear ... in a Deli in Islington)
Monix has seen Frank Ifield (Who? I said, but my partner says he yodelled - hopefully not all over Monix).
Lovethose cupcakes has seen Lauren Bacall (now I AM ENVIOUS indeed).
Lucille has a knack of spotting nice men (e.g. Michael Palin and Alan Titchmarsh)
Marcheline has a fine list of American names, like Ray Liotta (but I think she has seen many more famous people but won't kiss and tell - she was a flight attendant!)
