Away to the dentist this morning for a wee check up.
Got there a bit early and thought I'd kill time by savouring some of the earthly delights on offer in Dunbar's beautiful and vibrant high street. What with all the beautiful and elegant "daytime people" that inhabit the street at this time, the casual observer could be forgiven for mistaking it for a Parisian Boulevard.
Anyway. I was there - I might as well look at the shops. Lesson learned? Never, ever look in charity shop windows at their CD collection when they're not open - Courtney Pine "I've Known Rivers"..£1.
"Wayhay" I thought, I'll pop back once the old teeth have been picked, prodded, scraped and polished.
Or that was the idea. Shop doesn't open till 10.
I'll try and get back at the weekend. I might be wrong but I don't think there's a huge demand for Courtney Pine records in Dunbar.
Shame I didn't get it though. It might have raised my spirits slightly. Even although we all knew it was going to happen - the sight of a Tory outside number 10 has left me feeling scunnered.
Still, as long as Posh Dave leads his minority government with the same humility and disregard for personal advancement as Wee Eck leads his, we should be OK.
Doesn't help that everybody seems to be resigned to the fact that we will probably have to go through the whole sorry thing again in about a year.
