"We now live in a country in which John Major is our greatest living politician."

Monday, 8 April 2013


Yeah, so I haven't posted for a while.  This is because nothing has happened (this isn't strictly true, either in the local sense (there's a trip to Herefordshire, the ISA debacle and IPSWICH ) or the global sense (impending nuclear war).  However, we now have some real action on (in?) Old Market Square.

Kate has got a slow cooker, which she is in love with.  I'll let her wax lyrical about this in her own time.  Suffice to say the soup was lovely.

We have got a new Iron and Ironing Board Cover which I am in love with.  The sheer pleasure of the glide is indescribable.  It takes half the time to iron a shirt and the creases are twice as sharp.  Can't think of the last consumer purchase that's made me so happy.

Don't ask me to do your ironing.  But you are welcome to come over and iron chez nous.

Oh, and The Crown and Shuttle has re-opened, and is great.  Lots of real ale, some gravity fed.  6 weeks ago it was a shell, now it's a great pub.
