Mate mutiny?

Thursday 28 July

I don’t know what I’ve done to upset her, but the Mate disappeared for a day in London today, apparently with a list of errands, but it sounds to me like a day of meeting and eating, and all social of course.  Ah well, she came home eventually with another batch of boxes and shopping to be stowed in me…somewhere.  Did she even know the Skipper had gone off to Sainsbury’s and already brought back “essential victualling supplies” while she was away?  Apparently she did her quota of pedometer steps walking the streets of London, so I suppose that’s a good thing.  Skipper also took the opportunity of an unhindered browse, and inevitable hefty spend, in the local chandlery, and took his exercise by bike.
