Angel popped into town at lunchtime on Monday and spotted a teenage couple standing in the middle of Hall Place kissing like there was no tomorrow. They were so in love that they weren’t even distracted by the two boys on roller skates circling round them!

nAngel enjoyed a family meal recently but nearly choked on her Chinese at a question put to a young visitor.

The teenager was enjoying her own special meal as she is a vegetarian when someone nameless (hello mum!) asked her: “Can you eat fish?”

“Some vegetarians do, but I don’t eat anything that was a living creature,” came the reply.

“Can you eat chicken?...”

nAngel’s editor was relieved to find out that there was a car treasure hunt going through Lutton on Sunday. Relieved because he was quite paranoid after five cars in as many minutes had slowed down outside his house and stared intently at his house.

nAngel was interested to see Norfolk samphire – otherwise known as poor man’s asparagus – for sale on the fish stall on the Saturday market in Spalding, and wonders how many other local markets have such delicacies?

nAngel chuckled to see as she walked past Beales in Spalding the other day a woman flip up the dress worn by a mannequin outside the store, obviously to see what she was wearing underneath!

nDid Angel dream seeing dogs being pushed along in a baby pushchair in Spalding, wearing little caps to protect them from the sun? Ah, bless.

nAngel’s little niece was very brave last week, going to hospital without a fuss to have an operation on her nose to stop it constantly bleeding.

And she must have feared the worst, bless her, because her mum discovered her new computer screen saver was a close-up of the late Michael Jackson’s botched nose job.

nIt’s some years since Angel was at school, but, judging by the queues in WH Smith and Wilkinsons yesterday, she is glad to see that pupils’ passion for shiny, new stationery never changes.

n Angel was left wondering what she’d done wrong after the aforementioned visit to Wilkinson’s.

Third in the queue, she witnessed the pretty shop assistant ask the shoppers ahead of her whether they would like to take part in a short customer survey.

When Angel approached the till, she was charged her £1 (cheap pair of scissors) and bade farewell.

n A colleague of Angel’s was at the launch of a police anti-hare coursing operation yesterday when a police dog suddenly leapt out of a van. Fortunately, he was quickly put back in his pen.
