I could not sleep beyond six in the morning today. I had gone to bed at 8.00pm the previous day, a record for me indeed. Hence after 10 hours I had to wake up! Made a cup of tea and took a look out. It was raining! Pouring actually. A little later I went for breakfast where this cheerful young lad who is very fond of saying ‘smashing’ was the server for the day.
I asked him, “Where can I buy an umbrella?” With a laugh he said, “Yes, it is buying an umbrella kind of the day.” The he offered to call reception and ask if they had one in lost property. But they didn’t had one. Thankfully I got an umbrella quite close by.
It is another matter that it is so windy that at every turn the umbrella tries to fly away from my hand. And get bent the other way!
I am still enjoying.
