The latest news from our girl about town

Angel’s boss took his children swimming in King’s Lynn on Sunday and was delighted to find out admission was free because of the pool’s 40th anniversary celebrations.

He was less delighted that evening when his sister pointed out he had accompanied her to the pool’s opening day back in 1974. It made him feel rather old.

* On the same trip to King’s Lynn, Mr Editor was offered a chocolate by the chap serving him in Tesco. Apparently the young man had won them for excellent customer service and had chosen to share them with shoppers. Lots more awards coming his way, Angel thinks.

* Road workers often get a rough deal from us motorists, sitting in the comfort of our cars while they toil away in all conditions. Should they stop work for a moment we are known to criticise.

So let’s hear it for those working on Spalding’s roads at the moment. The work may be causing delays but they seem to be getting really stuck in to finish the job quickly.

* On the subject of workmen, did Angel really see one in Holbeach Road one morning last week rolling out toilet paper along the white lines in the middle? Or was she still half asleep and dreaming?

* Angel’s nine-year-old niece is now at that stage where she has started to question legends such as the tooth fairy and Easter Bunny.

After losing a fang last week, she told Angel she wasn’t sure about the fairy, but would save the tooth for her “just in case”.

Arrangements were a bit more formal that Angel expected, however, with the little girl leaving the tooth in a plastic folder, with the words: “Please insert money here,” written on!
