What’s all this nonsense about rain being wonderful weather for ducks – and other waterfowl presumably?

Angel was amused to see on Sunday – all Tour de Franced out, she just had to get out of the house – as she walked along the Coronation Channel in the rain that a family of swans was actually taking shelter under one of the bridges.

• Roll back the clock a couple of weeks to when the sun was splitting the paving stones and one of Angel’s reporter colleagues decided to treat her big brother to lunch at Birchgrove Garden 
Centre.

Staff were busily preparing a Lilliput Lane display with a sign that declared: “160 sleeps to Christmas.”

If you’re reading this today (Thursday), there are 
just 147 days left to go – so you should have had the sprouts on yesterday.

• A yob within 15ft of a council litter bin stretched out his arm in exaggerated fashion to throw down a sweet wrapper in The Crescent, Spalding, while his admiring pal looked on and didn’t say a word.

An outraged Angel bit 
her lip for fear of being 
whacked.

Bring on the super-duper CCTV cameras so these clowns can be named, shamed and fined!
