Tuesday.


I'd no real intention of doing a blog entry today, but walking through Lavenham this afternoon we spotted the above notice pinned to the front door of Tickle Manor, and thought you would like to see the correct and proper way in which things of importance are announced in Lavenham (or perhaps in the whole of South Suffolk).
Shortly afterwards we were looking round the bookshelves of a small antique centre a few doors away from the photo'd door. I'd picked up a book about Suffolk buildings (with no intention of buying) opened it at random and showed the pictures on the page I'd opened,to Ann, remarking on the coincidence. "What coincidence?"said Ann. "Well" I said, "We're going there to lunch tomorrow".  "Oh", says Ann "Is that Angela's new home?"   "Yes" says I. And it was, so we bought the book.

Something masochistic about being pleased to announce one's regret!
Although in the circumstances one can appreciate there will be a mixture of emotions....

The "refurbishment" refers to repair of the drawing pin holes in the door

Hello Rog, Crowbard. The writer of the note certainly appears to have mixed feelings about the closing down of the tea rooms, or the new management, or both. We rather liked it, and might well try the tea room when it reopens (so if it's an odd advert - it's worked).

That sign is perfect blogging material.

Mike and Ann said...

Thank you Liz. We both liked it.

Priceless!

Reading is riddled with signs saying 'END OF DIVERSION'. The latest one points into a car park. Seriously!

Hello Tim. I can quite appreciate that someone in your town council has worked out that if a series of Diversion signs are put up to direct all traffic into an expensive car park, there will therefore be a vast increase in revenue from parking fees. A little unprincipled maybe, but a very successful revenue raiser, which seems to be all that counts these days.
