Lockdown Town

At this time of year town should be vibrant and bustling with shoppers loaded with carrier bags and excited children in tow.

This is the walkway I usually take into the shops and it has a wide area where there’s usually something to see or music to listen to.

Not many people up High Street either.

Lets look downwards is my favourite bit. I like the mural and it’s another place for buskers, with seats to watch the world go by. Just off in the distance are several ancient timbered buildings and the guildhall. I only popped in to pick up a parcel from M&s., trousers that are too big so I’ll have to go again to take them back. Quite a few cafe’s were open , but not enough people for a buzz so home I went.

Even poor lonely Mr Reindeer looked grumpy, still waiting for his lights to go on.

How’ s your home town looking right now?

Stay safe and well lovely people.

Wordless Wednesday

Street Pianos

They seem to be popping up everywhere, with the invitation to ‘please play me’. If only I could play I’d be sitting there, because this one is just about half a mile from home. I’ve always envied people who can play an instrument or sing, I have the flattest voice and can’t hold a note!

I woke up the other morning concerned about this particular piano, because it’s been out in a very heavy four hour rain storm. What happens if a piano gets wet? Will it be ruined?

Most of the ones I’ve seen have been sheltered in stations and shopping centres, but this one is outside a charity shop on a main road.

Are there street pianos near you, or have you seen them around?
