Blogue d'un québécois expatrié en Angleterre. Comme toute forme d'autobiographie est constituée d'une large part de fiction, j'ai décidé de nommer le blogue Vraie Fiction.

DIY shop (a thought)
My aunt, the sister of my mother, once said about her husband that when he gets bored on a Saturday, he goes to the DIY shop. And when he is bored again after he comes back... he goes there again. I always thought that was pretty eccentric. Until I visited the local DIY shop here. I once mentioned it on this blog. Apart from tools and house goods, it has plenty of gardening stuff. And an electric train on display. Nothing too impressive, but still. I go there just to have a quick look at the train and the décor surrounding: the train station as it was decades ago. And the staff is nice and helpful. After the sweet shop, it might be my favourite shop in this town. I am very surprised about it, maybe I am getting old.
