This morning I went to get my hair cut at Cube. I’ve been growing it for a while so it was a decent length on top, and I wanted just the sides and back cut short. The hairdresser cut it all short. It’s a nice cut, but it wasn’t what I wanted. But I actually really like it, so maybe she knows better than I do — but I’m still annoyed she didn’t listen to me. Confusing.
While out I took some pictures of a few places, which I’m storing in this Flickr set. My wife has gone to Barcelona with the good camera, so excuse the poor quality of some of these.
I went to Duraty to buy a beard trimmer/shaver, but they didn’t stock it so I bought one in the Butterfly Pharmacy (17 Butterfly Walk, SE5 8RP), then I dropped into Wordsworth Books to buy… um, some books. The girl behind the counter was saying to her colleague “I love this bookshop!”, and that made me love it too. Enthusiastic staff and good service is worth the couple of extra pounds I pay by not buying from Amazon.co.uk, or whatever.
On my way back I took a walk through St Giles churchyard (pictured) and Lucas Gardens to kick the leaves around and look at the squirrels. I’m sure they’d usually be hibernating by now, but this winter’s been really mild so far. They are all fat and fluffy. I looked for the white squirrel, but couldn’t see him. Oh, wait; I haven’t spoken about the white squirrel yet, have I?
