Anna, a middle age woman in England with a self-deprecating look at life, mostly. I am not one thing, I am many and so is my blog. It's a lucky dip when you read me. I am part cook, part struggling fashion forward thinker, part mother, part professional job holder, part chicken keeper, part shopper. I am not an expert on anything other than me and I'm a 'bitsa'.

The Rise of the Building
I've mentioned the rumoured phenomenon of 'happy air ' around Waitrose on my other blog. Our soon to be Waitrose is rising at a pace. Anticipation air circles above the site currently. One sniffs it the closer one gets to the scaffolding.
Yesterday, as I walked to the station, I passed a TV news crew filming a reporter for ITV outside Sainsbury's. I imagine the storyline is the competition of the happy air soon to come to town.
Watch this space for further news. I might add a moving ticker to the bottom of my blog updating you on the ascension of Waitrose.
The ascension of Waitrose this week
Whilst on the subject of the Rise of the Building and its brother the Crane, I took some pictures of the city of London financial district skyline today.
As I walked across London Bridge.

Then there's this building that many think shouldn't have ascended. This is known as the Walkie Talkie building. The curvature captured the sun and was known to fry eggs on cars bonnets below. It obviously had to be altered to avoid the burning of passers by. Mr Him was a victim of that burn. He would be, wouldn't he.
