It was a rare beautiful sunny day here on the south coast of the UK.
My wife and I took advantage of it and had the afternoon off. We only decided late last night…so it was rather spontaneous. We decided to go to Brighton…not far from us.
Brighton is often termed ‘London by the sea’…I suppose for its hustle / bustle and ‘hipness’.
Anything goes in Brighton. You can wear what you want and no-one looks twice. Men in hot-pants, girls wearing next to nothing, other men in dresses and girls walking down the road, hand in hand (and sometimes the men).
It’s a great place to visit and just people watch.
We did a bit of shopping and had afternoon tea (hot tea, finger sandwiches, cream cakes) in a swanky hotel overlooking the sea. We sipped our hot tea, enjoyed the sandwiches and cream cakes and just watched people.
My wife said, “Do you ever see someone and think, I wonder what their story is? I wonder where they are going?”
We saw two different couples getting married and having their photos taken on the seafront. What’s their story? I wonder where they are going next? The Caribbean or Bognor?
A nice afternoon was had.
Then I came home and did a bit of de-cluttering.
I thought, “Shall I sort out some papers? Or some books or CD’s? Or what?”
I decided on jumpers. I’m not really a ‘jumper’ man so I had a good time clearing out my wardrobe.
I’m really enjoying this de-cluttering exercise.
A lovely day…we have friends coming round tonight…just for a few drinks and a chat. I’m looking forward to it.
What shall I de-clutter tomorrow?
