SUNDAY 23rd November.

A gloriously sunny day with clear blue skies.  Remarkably mild.  Had my LDSB followed by a FE ( with black pudding), T&M and a POSC.  Got all spruced up and then out to the garage for the Merc Sports.  Hood down of course but wearing my sheepskin flying jacket and my flying helmet so I was a warm as toast.  Took a spin down to Morecambe as I had been told that they were staging a Dickensian Festival of their own.  I had a good ride down but I failed to find the event. I did no see any signs anywhere.  I drove the entire length of the Promenade but I saw nothing.  So I had a nice ride back!  Parked the old beauty up ready for another day and then home.  Had a  crack at the crossword and then got changed to meet up for Cocktails @ 5.  There was a good turnout.  Paul was sporting a moustache ( Movember? ) and it really did suit him.  Finished off sitting in the Jammey Kelly of The Rose which had a roaring fire.  Gorgeous.

SATURDAY 22nd November

Another busy day.  Across to Chapels where I have a Building Plot for sale. A very nice couple came to see it and I have my fingers crossed that  they will proceed.  They were certainly making all the right noises!  Did not finish work till almost 3 which meant that I had missed  much of the racing on the box.  ( And perhaps Corrals failed to grab my cash?) but I caught up with it on Channel 4 + 1.    Stayed in for the evening enjoying a super curry from Balti House.


FRIDAY 21st November

Had a rather good day at work.  Had to take a trip over to Millom where I viewed what must be one of the most spectacular and beautiful homes that I have seen for a long time.  I always try to organise my Millom trips to occur around midday so that I can take the advantage of some glorious fish and chips from the Haverigg Chippy.  They have to be serious contenders for the best F&C in the entire country.  Straight from there to a visit to Bouth and when I got back Helen had dressed the Office Window ready for the Dickensian Festival  ( 29th and 30th November ) and it looks lovely.  Jennifer Snell loaned us some beautiful childrens dresses dating way back as a far as 1880.  The display includes some shoes. Fabulous.  I went out for Early Doors at 6.  There was a good crowd out, as usual and we all had a very pleasant time




Another day in the, very full, and exciting,  life of a Lake District  Market -Town Estate Agent.

I am proud to be

THE ONLY NATURALISED ULVERSTONIAN IN THE ENTIRE WORLD!

Remember to only bet what you can afford to lose, as its all just for a bit of fun.  The Bookies win in the end! 

Have you ever wondered how bookies  have wives dripping in gold jewellery, manage to live in classy houses and drive flashy cars?  Just think about it for a moment or two.  You will soon figure it out!

Good Luck!
