As the rest of the country recovers from all the excitement caused by the Royal Wedding, I am up bright and early ready to secure copies of the newspapers with Royal Wedding keepers. I am up early because I don’t want a repeat of what happened yesterday. After reading The Bag Hag‘s tweets about how lovely the pictures were, I decided I would get a copy of one of the papers to send back to Manila for Duckie to read. But I checked nearly every accessible news agent in Colchester and there were NO MORE papers! So I vowed to be up early so that I wouldn’t come up empty-handed. Besides, Sunday papers may have more of the same things, maybe even better photos.
And because I was early, there were enough newspapers to satisfy the hardiest of hoarders. I had my pick 🙂 And then after, I discovered that getting a bacon, egg and cheese roll from the burger van parked on the pier was a really good deal 🙂 So breakfast and my newspapers for Duckie. Job done!
Oh yeah, and Manila is celebrating Labour Day today. Pity they won’t have a non-working day tomorrow.
