GUARDIAN ANGEL: Shocked by Dame Maggie

Have your say

Angel understands Spalding was shocked at the weekend when a loud “oooh” greeted Dame Maggie Smith’s use of the ‘f’ word during Sunday afternoon’s showing of Quarter at South Holland Centre.

Angel also heard that the centre’s pre-film lunch format proved very popular with filmgoers, with hardly any jokes about Red Rum...

Angel was tootling along on the A16 at Sutterton the other day when a handful of orange peel came flying towards her chariot’s windscreen. Said orange peel either came from a recycling lorry or a small van covered in promises on how it can put your business on the map. Okay, orange peel is biodegradable but is it just too much trouble to save it until you can put it in the bin? Flinging stuff out of vehicle windows also puts fellow motorists at risk as they may be distracted.

Nothing to do with the horse meat in supermarket burgers scandal, but Angel recently changed her habits and switched to buying meat at the butchers rather than the supermarket. She was surprised to find she could buy a lovely small joint of crackling pork for between £3 and £4 – far cheaper than anything in the pre-prepared packs offered by chain stores – and the taste was out of this world.

Angel is going to try some beef next... safe in the knowledge that it is properly sourced and didn’t come last in the 3.30 at Newmarket.

WEBCAM WARNING: If talking to a loved one over the Internet, remember to be fully prepared before the call. Angel’s male friend – whose partner is currently abroad – passed the test for having shaved and worn a freshly ironed shirt. However, the family cat is under no circumstances allowed in the living room and could be seen purring on the back of the sofa!

Angel was very sad last week to find that thieves had targeted her beloved chariot. She always makes sure that she leaves nothing tempting on show to tempt passing criminals, but she thought the fad for stealing car badges had ceased. Especially for a Vauxhall Insignia... hardly a Rolls Royce.

A friend of Angel’s has been struggling to communicate with her 18-year-old son while he spends three months touring Thailand with his girlfriend. So helpful Angel, being a Facebook friend of said girlfriend, said she may be able to update the friend on her son’s progress by looking at the girlfriends Facebook page, which they did. Most recent status: “I am sitting in a tattoo parlour while my boyfriend has a dragon inked onto his arm...”

Angel is very proud of her 10-year-old nephew, who is already making tough decisions before starting secondary school. The brave little soldier is going on holiday on Saturday and has decided to leave Ozzy the teddy at home.
