This heading is related to the Politicians response as to why Comet, like so many other high street stores are either going into administration, or just shutting up shop and moving to virtual stores on the internet.

About 10.00 am Pauline phones to say she has had a lie in and that Gordon is about to take misty out for her morning walk on Southsea common and that she will book a taxi for 11.15 to collect me and then we will be off down to the city centre to get some shopping done. So I watch an old episode of " Ever Decreasing Circles" and then at 10.45 I go and have a shave and get ready for when Pauline arrives.

Anyway back out into the fresh air and I get myself composed and we decide that we would probably have more success checking out a new TV for Me, well I thought we would, we went into Curry,s in the precinct and saw the salesman, All I wanted to know was, What smart TV,s of 40 Inch screen size did they have and the price, but that was to hard for him to comprehend, No I dod not want a blue ray DVD Player, No I did not want a sound bar, I Only want a TV. eventually he said he would print out the details of a TV set I was interested in, at last something simple, "NO" the printer would not work, "Hello we are in a TV and Computer shop" anyway that is Currys crossed of my list.

So will we have better luck in the Sony Shop. so off we go, by this time I have had about enough , Anyway this is the last shop as Gordon is coming with the car to pick Pauline and me up and take us home. anyway into the sony shop, it seems like groundhog day "I only want a TV, I do not want all the other bits and pieces, so out of there as quickly as possible, make our way to where gordon is with the car and head back home. Tonight it will be on to the internet and get my TV that way with free delivery and also at a cheaper price, from the Currys online shop. "Simples"
Well once back home it is 3.00 pm so I make coffee for me, Pauline and Gordon and then Put the shopping away, we have our coffee and a chat and I also get a surprise phone call from my cousin Carolyn in Weymouth, we have a nice chat for 10 - 15 minutes and then afterwards Pauline sorts out my laundry to take with her and then her and Gordon make there way home and I make a coffee and then get started on todays Journal.
So there we are the end of a frustrating day, so now I am going to get this Journal finished and Posted to my blog and then settle down to a nice evening of TV with a nice Roast lamb dinner tonight although it is a Marks and Spencer ready meal, it will be easy to do and very tasty, so until tomorrow I will say Bye Bye.
