I ventured into town - viz. central Belfast - today. I sought one of the latest Apple iPad Air 2 tablets.
It's "Space Grey" and 64GB capacity.
Accordingly, I started the two-seater - also dark grey, as it happens - and motored to Gloucester Street, where I was fortunate enough to find a parking space.
In the Apple Store, at Victoria Square shopping centre, I was seen fairly promptly by an assistant.
It was all quite straightforward, given that I knew what I wanted.
The latest iPad is considerably lighter and slimmer than my fourth generation model.
The original intention had been to buy the new iPad at the giant Tesco store at Knocknagoney though, to my disappointment, they had none in stock (apart from the 16GB variant).
THENCE I presented my new passport application at the Home Office's passport section in Victoria Street which, as it happens, is almost opposite Gloucester Street.
AT the venerable Linenhall Library I found a 1960s Burke's peerage and baronetage and the armorial bearings of the Rt Hon Sir Henry (Harry) Mulholland Bt.
Incidentally, I'll be posting a piece about Ballyscullion Park imminently.
