    This was also 50% off but was a mistake. I was looking at it and decided against it but forgot to put it back!

    Well it was an hour and twenty minute drive... the M1 is a lot busier than I remembered. There was just one purchase pre planned. I thought eventually curiosity would get the better of me and I would want to explore the Ring cycle...

    Oh! When I said one, I meant two. After all Almaviva had said about it, the purchase was going to happen somewhere, sometime...

    Too much?
    Nah! That's fine.
    However my wife says I should also consider a set of headphones!
    O look. I've just noticed a Clayton involved in Written on Skin.
    I also discovered Kenilworth Castle is just outside Leamington Spa.
    We also had a very nice sandwich and coffee at a cafe called Gusto something.
    And I also found a nice Jigsaw puzzle store (these are good for winter series radio listening (cricket)).
    I'm going to stop now... behaving like a 6 year old on a sugar rush.

    Looks like you had a great shopping excursion. As convenient as Amazon is, I still miss the days of bricks-and-mortar record stores and hunting for "treasures" in the bins.

    I'm enjoying your shopping trip with you! There's nothing like the instant gratification of buying opera from a shop.

    Yes... You'll have to keep an eye on me... Let me know when you think things are getting out of hand and I need help...

    Actually only left the store when the wife said "I AM HUNGRY" (sounded a little like "ANGRY")...

    Loved the store. A PROPER music store. Will go again. I told the staff this lot should take me through the week.
