Records R Us
A fine afternoon with Simon and Christine at our favourite posh-pizza-place in Chichester. Both look well, Si in fetching Barca colours, where they holidayed last month. I have known Si for 35 years. Amazing. We didn't visit the school like last time, but we did pop into Helter Skelter, Chichester's one and only surviving record shop (if you discount HMV, which I do), dragging the girls along with us. One minute in: "When are we going Daddy?" "Soon. Oh look, an early 808 State 7-inch." Two minutes in: "Are we going now?" "Yes, soon. Is that a Greenslade LP?" Three minutes in: "Daddy, are we going now?" Simon and I give in and off we traipse to Early Learning Centre in search of small model animals.
