It wasn’t between season clothes that caught Angel out last Thursday as she walked down the Crescent in Spalding to meet a friend.
It was the between season flower displays. There was a short gap between the lovely summer hanging baskets and the autumn displays of pansies and Angel just happened to be passing as all the automatic waterers were doing their job...
She’s a quick learner and ducked out of the way after the first watering.
• Who knew that turning right out of Morrisons at Pinchbeck was quite so tricky? Angel found it out on Friday, only able to make the manoeuvre when a courteous driver realised her dilemma and let her out. Phew and thanks!
• The planners behind the road works that have brought gridlock to Spalding have a lot to answer for if Angel is to believed. The hallowed one was on her way to watch Femmes Fatales – Songs for Scarlet Women at Long Sutton’s Market House on Friday night, only to have to turn around after flying straight into a traffic jam on the A17 in Holbeach. Spalding is supposed to be 100 miles from London – but you wouldn’t have thought so driving around town this week.
• Angel was quite shocked to see at a recent trip to the fair in Spalding that goldfish were still prizes at the hook-a-duck stand, especially as some councils have banned them. When she won one as a child it only survived a day and others have said the same. Does anyone else think it’s cruel?
