Excuse me, could you turn the rain off?


Aloha Bloggerinos,



Just sorting through my pictures from the weekend and thought you might enjoy this one.

I had just shlepped round Liverpool One (the nicest shopping place ever in my opinion-anyone know it?) in the pouring rain, then, outside Tesco Metro, this reeaallllyy burly market stall man shouted "Geeeeettt your umBREllaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaasssssss!!!!" so loudly that I nearly lost my hearing!! I was so startled that I practically walked into him, mumbled my apologies and do you know what he replied, six whole inches from my face? "GEEEEETTTT YOURR UMBRELLLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASSSSS!!".

I thought I should buy one being as a) I was drowning and b) I suspected Mr Umbrella (ella,ella, ella) might stab me to death with a brolly spoke if I didn't "get my umbrellaaaaa".

£3 and an awful bedraggled barnett later, I arrived at the train station ready for a mammoth shlep round Manchester. I blame the rain and cold for my deathly flu!! I've been snoozing all afternoon and have woken up looking a right treat! Yikes!

So Bloggerinos, have a little chuckle and stay indoors!

Toodlepip!

    Isn't the weather minging at the moment? It goes from one extreme to the other.
    I went to Uni in Liverpool and I reckon I've bought an umbrella off the same man! It was definitely in the same spot outside Tesco. It was only £2 though so their prices have gone up!
