couch and potatoes 

the couch arrived this morning. it changes the room entirely . . . the acoustics, the space . . . very exciting. but then you see all of the other pieces you need . . . but i want to really, really shop for those things--markets and jumble sales (that's what they call them here: jumble sales.)

there is a building site across the street from my building . . . they are building shops and flats . . . i have a fantasy that there will be lovely neighbors with window boxes and below--a coffee shop, book shop, newsagent with excellent magazines, dry cleaner, wine merchant, and a green grocer with excellent seasonal veggies . . . the reality will be a pawn broker, betting shop, and fish & chip shop my luck . . . hmmmm . . .
