1. I'm just thinking the salmon we are having for lunch is going to be pretty dull, when I find a small piece of ginger in the fridge door; and then I remember there are some cubes of frozen lemon juice somewhere in the freezer.
2. When I come out of my appointment, it's still raining. Instead of walking home, I get another cup of tea in town.
3. When I look up from the laptop, the rain has stopped and the sun has come out. Town is every kind of gl-: roof tiles gleam; drops on a lime tree glitter; a passing car dazzles with the glare from its glass; the reflection of a shop window glimmers on the pavement and a clotted constellation glints from the rough tarmac.
