except for the satisfaction of a truly fabulous jar of Apple and Elderflower Chutney -
and except for the very great pleasure of a leisurely wander around the Borough Market in delightful company of fjm, miramon, and matociquala (who offered to send me popcorn if I should become desperate for sources of it!).
On Monday, I ran out of A4 printing paper.
On Tuesday, I found there were no stationers in Canary Wharf, so no printing paper could be purchased there.
On Wednesday, I found that the company from which I was mail ordering printing ink charged for postage purely based on weight - so paper wasn't worth ordering from them.
On Thursday, I found that all the stationers in the City close at 6pm - and I arrived there around 6:15.
On Friday, I went to the Borough Market and bought A4 printing paper. (Well... across the street from it.)
