I am totally preoccupied today with preparing for returning to France.
I rushed into town to for one or two last minute necessities. The fastest route for me is to walk straight down the High Street so off I set at a fast pace.
I was stopped no less than five times by clipboard wielding charity canvassers, a team of young people wearing jerkins identifying them with a very good cause. Unfortunately I find this type of fundraising particularly intrusive and it really puts me off. Any time I have stopped to speak have been subjected to a hard sell and I'm afraid it has exactly the opposite effect to the one intended.
Is this a British phenomenon, or does it occur elsewhere?
I returned home the back way. Actually, it's prettier.
