A walk to Lidls and back – 11th December 2014

Its about 5 miles if you go the pretty way.  I was keen to deliver a big bag or dead ballpoint pens to the Green Centre where Manor Road meets manor Hill. Melanie there told me she has a market for dead ballpoint pens and we seem to collect lots.

On the way up Pankhurst Avenue I spotted an extension on a house that had an interesting first floor door.

Perhaps it is awaiting a balcony?

Then on to Lidl where the bargain red wine was not as good as the £5 bottles at Sainsburys, but the butter, cheese and German lager were all excellent value.  On the way home I called at Brighton College, the big private school in Kemptown, to see if the new sundial on the newly built tower is visible yet.  Perhaps I don’t have to say its a fee-paying private school, no other Brighton based school is building a tower and fitting a sundial.  Just a little more evidence of the growing disparity of wealth and income under the ConDems.

But I was pleased to see that the dial was showing the correct time because Jackie Jones did the maths for it.

On Queens Park Road I spotted a hand-built extension to a house which included a washing machine door as a window – you don’t see that every day.

I wonder if it needed planning permission?  Oh come on! Its just a shed.  Quite right, give people some freedoms.
