The latest news from our girl about town...
As Angel was queuing up, cold and tired, to pay for petrol at the Whaplode Co-op station on Tuesday morning, there was a bread delivery.
The sprightly delivery man bounded into the shop, carrying his tray of bread and when, asked how he was, replied: “Living the dream.”
Angel would like whatever he had for breakfast.
• The headteacher at Spalding Grammar School said recently that the “students would be the losers” should staff there carry out a strike threat next month.
Well, not according to Angel’s 13-year-old nephew – he’s absolutely thrilled at the prospect of maybe a few days off school!
• Did anyone else notice the number of ‘dead’ and abandoned brollies that obviously failed during last week’s windy and wet weather? Does anyone own an umbrella that has survived more than a couple of years’ use?
• Angel has long known that speed is a factor in the accidents that happen on the Crowland bypass – she has occasionally been overtaken by cars doing ridiculous speeds. However, after an experience on Saturday night she now knows that drivers joining the main road from smaller side roads are also to blame. Angel and her family were on their way to Crowland when a (newish) red Corsa simply pulled out in front of them, forcing them to slam the brakes on. Thankfully, there was no collision, but that night out could so easily have ended in disaster.
• Spotted on the way home from a shopping trip to Peterborough last Friday – an abandoned and dying Christmas tree, still bearing one or two pieces of tinsel that almost seemed to be twinkling in the lovely sunshine.
