A pause was needed today - a dash in the pouring rain on Monday with a rucksack full of shopping lead to a smashed iPad. Old age (the phone, not me) caused my iPhone to black-out on Thursday resulting in confusion over a missed rendezvous, (sorry again if you are reading this!) A miss-placed brush while painting and drinking G&T at the same time ended with the glass and now purple drink crashing down on the floor. Today was a day of picking up pieces. It started well with a trip to Şule's to choose a colour for my new kitchen cupboards. The shop wasn't open but I spent a very pleasant 30 minutes in Joy Art cafe next door, drinking very good coffee with Jake by my side. I'm very happy to find another comfortable spot that allows well behaved dogs inside. We shall go back to sample the food.
