I failed in my mission to buy pins – they didn’t have any. I did get a thimble but they only had one size and they were all in bubble packs so I have no idea if it will fit. I bought a packet of Boasters to compensate…

I’ll might cycle out to the shop in Lady this afternoon to see if they have any pins in stock, just in case.

I had a sudden urge to invite all my friends to come and stay and to shareContinue readingBare Naked

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarché to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM
