A few weeks ago, when it was particularly cold, I was thinking I needed a warm beanie that I wouldn’t be too embarrassed to wear in public.
The one I normally wear (for dog walking, in the dark) is a plain black one, and whenever I wear it I hear muffled remarks about ‘cat burglars’.
I wanted something warm, that wouldn’t make me look like a criminal. I looked around in a couple of shops, but didn’t find anything I liked and then forgot about the idea.
Today I went into a shop that I was just walking past, for no particular reason, and came out with a new beanie.
So I was pretty happy with that little diversion.
