The latest news from our girl about town...
Irony of the week: three Spalding High School girls walking past Angel yesterday afternoon. One, stuffing her face as she walks, says to the other two: “That’s rude, rude and even more rude.” Was she talking about her own eating habits?
* Talking of schools, it still strikes Angel as strange that schools have to advertise these days to try to attract students. One secondary school has even been sending out representatives to primary schools in their catchment area to try to attract the youngsters next September.
* Angel took flight last week, so is struggling to believe what her own eyes saw before she departed for warmer shores. However, Angel is pretty sure she saw a carpet shop in Spalding with a display of artificial grass outside their establishment. Now, it may be that they are diversifying into sports courts and the like, or could it be that this is some new home fad: indoor cricket or tennis anyone?
* Angel does get a lot of flack from ’im indoors for moaning about the amount of rubbish that is dumped in this area, but feels she might have a legitimate complaint this time. Someone appears to have abandoned a car – with wrecked tyre – outside Guardian Towers. It’s been there for well over a week so it does seem to have been dumped. When it comes to fly-tipping this has to be the most brazen Angel has seen.
* Let’s end on a positive note though. Angel loves a nice meal out, a quiz or even (watching only) karaoke, so she’s been delighted to read about the upturn in fortunes of three local pubs in the Free Press and Guardian recently. The Lincolnshire Poacher and Hole in the Wall in Spalding and Jolly Crispin in Lutton are all back in business with new owners. Best of luck to them.
