As I sauntered out towards St P's and the sorting office this morning I noticed these 'angels' on the fence opposite. It appears to be the thing these days for women's groups to knit such items for Christmas, sometimes decorating pillar boxes and other street furniture in an attempt to promote 'good feelings.' It is happening in many places and was seen last year also if I remember right. There are one or two groups who make use of our hall on occasions to sit and knit, croquet, spin and gossip for a few hours and occasionally put on a display. I suspect they have a hand in this.
The sun took some time before it beat off the cloud cover, making this chopped down tree stand somewhat bare against the sky. I would have had more pics but I was carrying cards to the church on my way and carrying a packet back from the sorting office afterwards. The postie woman claims she knocked but I never heard her, she would not lie but she finds it difficult to hammer the door, the other man who does this round manages that well! So I had to walk down not knowing what I would find and all I found was 'Nutmeg' a Scottish football magazine! This thick item is too thick to bend and will not go through so that meant walking for a mile or two just for this. I might get round to reading it eventually, so far I have three book tokens to make use off, and I am smiling as I think there is one more on the way.
I failed to take the angel home, who knows where that might lead? Instead I was satisfied with photos and notice many have already made homes for themselves, the brightly coloured ones first of course. I will be out in town tomorrow (twice! Such excitement!) and who knows what these wimmen will have done elsewhere?
Jeremy is in trouble apparently for calling Theresa 'Stupid!' Quite why this is bad I fail to comprehend, are we not allowed to be honest? On top of this manufactured row the Speaker himself was confronted by (a Tory) female MP claiming he had called her 'stupid.' How strange that such an attitude can be found in the House while yesterday a Scots MP was told to 'Go back to your own country' by Nicholas Soames (Churchill's grandson) and yet this was not considered racism and dealt with by the speaker. What is more serious, racism or speaking the truth?
At least we are not the US...
