Winston had a trip out today, to Levenshulme Repair Cafe to see how it all worked. He set himself up with a nice coffee first of all.
There was someone repairing bikes and someone repairing clothes. The clothes lady was making bunting too, which Winston thought looked like vaark overcoats.
There was a very shiny toaster too. Winston watched the repair with great interest, and sneaked a glance at his fine ears in the mirrored sides.
After the repair cafe, it was time for a trip to Levy Market and a spot of lunch. Winston thought he’d tell Ofelia about the Quesadilas, if he could remember how to spell them.
He tried a bit of trading, but had trouble finding a pitch that was both visible and inconspicuous, not having a permit himself.
But then he found that the band playing (Sound of Thieves) were friends of the humans, and fans of the mousevaarks, so he borrowed a pitch next to their CDs. He didn’t sell anything, but he had a good day out!
