You may have gathered that I am quite concerned about my resting brain cells. To try and combat this I’ve had Radio 4 on at all times. The problems seems to be that in order to learn stuff, you actually have to listen. Unfortunately, just having it on in the background and hoping that I’ll keep up do date with current affairs by some kind of osmosis process is not proving successful.
Mind you, I’m pretty hot on local news, and by news I do of course mean rumours, which is how I know that there is to be…..pause for dramatic effect……a Primark in the high street. My joy at this news is embarrassingly high, as Orpington High Street is not exactly a shopping mecca, given that it has not one but TWO mobility shops within spitting distance of each other. Why? Do people shop around for incontinence supplies?? “I didn’t see any Tena Lady I liked in that place, let’s try over the road.”
