The latest from our girl about town
Angel’s friend thought she would introduce her five-year-old daughter to the game of Charades. The youngster quickly grasped the concept and when it came to her turn told her family it was a TV programme with three words in the title. She then proceeded to walk around with pursed lips making a kissing noise. The family eventually had to admit defeat and the little girl told them it was Home And Away. ‘But why were you doing that with your lips?’ they asked. ‘Because they’re always kissing on that programme,’ she said.
• Angel may be wrong,but she’s sure she got sprinkled from one of the automatic flower basket waterers in The Crescent in Spalding as she walked home the other night... in the rain.
• Local journalist Kate Chapman discovered the reasons behind the sudden upsurge in her daughter Nancy’s strength the other day. On being complimented on her ability to open a heavy door, five-year-old Nancy replied:“It’s because I sometimes do push-ups when I’m in bed.”
• Angel passed a sign for superfast broadband while visiting the Jolly Crispin pub in Lutton for a meal last week.
Apparently Lutton is now one of the villages to benefit... which is ironic considering the couple that run the excellent hostelrie couldn’t get a connection on their iPad when it was time for Angel to settle up after her scrummy New York Chicken.
• Out of the mouths of babes: On hearing that American sitcom The Big Bang Theory was on television the other evening, Angel’s fairy-mad niece got all excited. Sadly she had misheard the TV announcer and the upcoming programme was nothing to do with fairies at the beginning of time.
