The latest from our girl about town...
Spotted in Spalding on Tuesday lunchtime: a dreadlocked gentleman imploring a pigeon to poo on him! Angel can only think it must bring good luck... although she cannot see how.
* Angel got a heck of a shock as she walked past Tulip Radio’s offices in The Crescent in Spalding in the dusk one evening recently. What she thought was a rather large man staring at her through the door turned out to be nothing more sinister than a scarecrow!
n There was a lovely vibe in Spalding’s Market Place as Angel strolled around on Tuesday. There was a female busker and a band providing music – but best of all the sun was shining and felt warm as she queued for her regular baked potato off the market.
* Angel is giving up booze for Lent (which started yesterday... so far so good!) but a friend is really pushing the boat out.
She is giving up chocolate, not touching refined sugar, partaking in some form of exercise every day, displaying one random act of kindness every day and only going on Facebook once a week.
* Perhaps somebody should tell the mobile phone companies that Lincolnshire is open for business. Chancellor George Osborne was in Lincoln on Thursday – bringing good news for South Holland on the day the city’s biggest employer, Siemens, announced it had won a £30million order. Our reporter managed to use her mobile phone to call the Spalding Guardian’s newsdesk from the Siemens reception, standing alongside a fellow on another network who couldn’t get a signal. It’s a disgrace.
* Angel was in a very cold Wells-next-the-Sea on Sunday and could not get over the amount of people eating ice creams in the chill. Must be made of tough stuff in Norfolk.
