Must be all the jellied eels and pie n mash.......
Apparently a similar thing has occoured in Tamworth as the Luton massive ( Wayne ) invades
Today I found that it is far more expensive to make a birthday cake,, than to buy a birthday cake
Yes but at least you have a rough idea of what is in it
I found a plastic bowl in the back garden with some food in it. I think it was dragged in by a fox. I also think one of my neighbours is feeding foxes. Just hope the s**t on his lawn.
I rather like foxes, not seen any regularly in years though. Had a very local one when I lived in Southampton, used to see it on the way home from the pub most nights. Usually between the kebab shop and my house, pretty sure it waited for me!
Oodles of them in the woods opposite my house. See them at odd times recently, 3:15pm, 8:30am as well as after dark. It can get rather noisy around here at night lol esp when they have youngsters.
A friend of mine lived here, years ago, and there was a cypress hedge between his back garden and the Police Headquarters. Foxes lived under it for years and used to excavate new extensions under the hedge every year, using the roots as roof-beams - I would move six to eight wheelbarrowfuls of their spoil every year. The young ones used to play on the lawn with toys they had liberated from neighbouring gardens. They always used to leave their rubbish out in the same place for us to dispose of - chip wrappers, squirrel pelts, that sort of thing.
Today I Found.....that Tesco's are robbing b'astards!
After saving our clubcard points all year for Christmas & receiving them in the post last week, I decided we should use one today to get the child a new top for a party she's going to tonight.... smallest voucher value was £7.50......so doubled up we should get £15.00......yay!
But no! The voucher handed back is only worth £10.00! Where's my other fiver I ask........"oh" they say, "we can only do them in increments of £5.00, so I've put the other £2.50 back on your card for next year"!
Grrrrrr I check all the other vouchers.....all of them for either £8.00 or £7.50 Why on earth if you can only double them up in increments of £5.00 did they not send them out in £5.00s????
That's 35% of their value lost to next year when we need them now!!!!!
Dirty robbing b'astards!
Today, whilst searching through boxes for my School Exam Certificates I found....
A certificate from Chatterly Whitfield Mining Museum that certifys that I 'decended the Winstanley Shaft seven hundred feet to the Holly Lane coal seam' in 1986!
Now I'm not sure what type of job I thought this certificate was going to help with.....but I must of kept it for a good reason!
Was he John's dad?
Yesterday at Brampton Park I found.....
... a calf in the road.
I got him back home eventually, after some entertainment.
Well, I didn't actually find it, but somebody else found it, 200 miles away, in a lost bag left on a station platform in Dublin. He tweeted it with her name from the Polish passport as a clue, in case anybody knew her. It was retweeted by Irish Rail, who I still follow from when I used to travel over by train (and ferry!). Unfortunately, he spelt her very unusual name wrongly - I took a guess at the correct spelling, found a likely suspect on Facebook and alerted her, just as she was realising the bag was lost.
Ten minutes later, she was on her way back to get it.
Ha! It gets more bizarre - I've just realised that I know the bloke that found it!
This is him, driving a train into a different station...
...that the trail of white paint all across the town does, as I suspected, lead all the way to the Tip.
I presume that they managed to find their way back home again safely.
A three pence piece whilst digging up the garden. It was dated 1943 so not even worth, well, three pence.
Equivalent value today would be near enough fifty pence....
