    I live in walking distance of a load of shops one of the good things about living in London. If you choose the right part you don't have to use transport to get to them. The ones I use to have to travel to have gone bust....

    I think people from Lincolnshire were the only ones to shop at Debenhams. There was a reassuringly dreary grey familiarity in Debenhams stores for Lincolnshire folk. They felt safe there.

    The inevitable conclusion to that is housing for the homeless so they are inside rather than out in the city/town centres.

    Then they are able to get crafty and creative beyond selling the big issue or playing some instrument badly.

    Then we have small artisan independents instead of soulless national chains, and end up where the high street started.

    This time beards and merkins optional.
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.
