While enjoying the Autumn sunshine in Norfolk on Sunday Angel came across a remarkle bit of chivalry. Walking along the front at Wells she spotted a couple arm in arm. The young man had not only given up his cardigan as the chill set in, but he had also lent his sweetheart his trainers and limped alongside her bravely!

l On the subject of attire, Angel wonders whether the chap sporting flip flops and shorts in Tuesday morning’s rain storm had not seen the weather forecast or was just pleasantly eccentric.

l Angel came across two examples of terrible driving at the weekend and cannot decide which was worse... the motorcyclist who appeared to be reading a text message on his mobile phone or the lorry driver who had a newspaper stretched over his steering wheel. Strewth.

l Being a big fan of Stephen King, Angel was delighted to hear recently that her 12-year-old nephew will be reading one of the American author’s books as part of his Spalding grammar School reading challenge.

Angel appreciates Shakespeare and Dickens as much as the next reader but has often thought a few more modern classics thrown in would encourage our children to read more.

l Angel’s niece has been in her thoughts too. Her best friend had been telling her about a fun Sunday School she goes to at her mother’s favourite church, in Thetford, Norfolk. So last weekend she was allowed to go to and the two nine-year-olds travelled together in the back of the friend’s mum’s car. Trouble is the best friend is Portugeuse... and so was the language of the Sunday School teacher...
