Silhouettes of Birdsong

How many plates of baked beans does it take to recover from a night on the tiles? They're probably scouring my insides, right now, stinking my gut up with rancid tomato flavouring.

I'm sat staring out of a nearly open window, looking at a pink Good Friday sunset, while birds twitter grumpily at little or no bread thrown out into the garden, and I have to squint to see whether the buds on the tallest tree are leaves uncurling, or blossom. It's the first Easter in five years that I haven't been looking out of a window in East London watching the white hawthorn blossoms emerge as the pink cherry tree blossoms begin to fall and create pink candy floss drifts in the street outside.

I finished the book I'm reading. Time for another volume to open.

You know it's taken me over 10 years to figure out that Candy floss was what we called Cotton candy. I've read that a million times in writing before it finally occurred to me to look it up on the internet.

And I would say about 4 plates of baked beans!

I dunno, cotton candy sounds like it would bung up your mouth and taste of old muslin, whereas candy floss would dissolve into amber sweet liquid in your mouth, somehow.

4 plates? I still have two to go, then! 24 hour shop time. They're already laughing at me for going in every few hours since 5 this morning.
