The latest from our girl about town

Angel couldn’t believe her eyes while looking out of the Guardian Towers window on Tuesday afternoon.

She saw SEVEN vehicles park on double yellow lines right on the Crescent/Sheepmarket junction.

Eventually a lorry seemed to take up permanent residency there, meaning vehicles turning left down the Crescent had to do so on the wrong side of the road.

One vehicle needing to do this was a police car... and a traffic warden also walked on by. No doubt he had smaller fish to fry.

* Several people (including yours truly) could do with taking a lesson from the younger members of their families.

For while youngsters across south Lincolnshire were safely viewingFriday’s eclipse through specially made goggles, Angel and more than one friend stared at it though the naked eye... and suffered accordingly.

* Angel has been friends for quite some time with a very nice gentleman called Jake, although knowing that his real name is Julian... and on Saturday she finally found out the reason.

When he was at primary school there were four Julians in a class and the form teacher, so as to not be confused, called three of them James, John... and Jake.

* Hark! Was that the first herald of spring Angel heard last weekend? Was it the cuckoo calling? The first birds chirruping in the mild breeze? No, Angel heard her first lawnmower of the year on Sunday.

* Well done Crescent traders in Spalding. Many of them have now got hanging baskets outside their shops bursting with spring flowers. Sad to see the smart-looking interiors shops is moving out though.
