Its a funny old world!! we had an email this morning from Purley Apparently someone is selling on ebay a jam jar full of " Clean Lake District Air" starting bid 99p I kid you not!!!
Then earlier Helen answered the door bell from a lady who said and I quote
" My sons sat nav has broken down so can you tell me where we are?"
Its Saturday again with the marrow update, think I will need something bigger to rest the beast on.
Hill Top was open Friday this week which is rare, I overheard the following answer to why it shut at 4pm instead of 5pm !!!!
" Well we are normally closed Fridays anyway but we are open occasional Fridays but this is not one of the occasional Fridays this is an extra Friday" Oh that explains everything
