Well for Christmas, Typepad just ate my post. Awesome.
I'd recreate it, but I'm a bit jet lagged. We had a good flight into London Gatwick today (24th). I forced myself to stay awake and hit the shops before early closing this afternoon. I only bought things for myself, so noone get excited.
County Mall here in Crowley, West Sussex pretty much has everything I'd need to survive indefinitely. I found some paperbacks at WH Smith, a cute boho sweater on sale at Debenhams and tons of snacks/food/wine at Marks and Spencer. Good times.
I started to walk about the High Street here in Crawley, but began flagging when the double espresso ran out of potency. I did find a lovely church to admire with the requisite mossy walls and tower thingy. I am content with the jetlag.
So before I run out of steam and internet minutes, Merry Christmas to all who celebrate and best wishes to all. Home (my sister's anyway) tomorrow for a tardy Christmas dinner and probably a coma :) Kisses!
