WEDNESDAY 26th November

Peter arrived at the office just before 9 and we both took off for Preston Patrick for the Auction Sale. There was a vast assemblage of goods and chattels but neither us bought a solitary thing.  We only stayed for  an hour or so and then toddled back to Ulverston and had  a very nice lunch at the Hot Mango.  Home then for a very lazy afternoon completing the GK Crossword and reading the Telegraph.  Had a nice tea then out much later on to the Rose where Perry was playing with his group Eaten by Crocodiles ( Excellent) .  There was a very nice atmosphere in the pub.


TUESDAY 25th November.

Another good day at the office working right through till just before 6.The decision on the Robinsons Brewery Development is well overdue but is now expected to be delivered on FRIDAY  Oooooh!  It has cost a lot of money on both sides as they had engaged Barristers and they cost a lot I think.  So Friday will see the decision at last.  Whatever happens the only folk who will have gained will be the Barristers.  There is a lot of activity around the town now for  the Dickensian. Lots of Christmas Trees going up outside the shops and the main tree has arrived too.  Not the best one we have ever had but it will look splendid when the lights are switched on by the Mayor on Saturday at 4pm.  The main tree is a traditional gift to the town by the Ulverston Traders Association.


MONDAY 24th November.

An excellent day and got on particularly well. It is always a distinct pleasure to sell one first thing on a Monday morning! The decision on the Robinsons Brewery Planning Application I have been told will be made on FRIDAY of this week.  It has taken an age to get this far.  Why?  Heaven only knows.  The rumour is that Lidl or Aldi are likely to create a supermarket there if the decision approves the Planning Application  from the Inspector.  My grandson Josh has managed to get a cadetship with James Fishers of Barrow and he is THRILLED at the prospect.  Good for him.  I am certain he will do well.  Had tea with Clare Martin and Josh.  A very nice curry. then home for my R&B show followed by UC then a bit of intense practise with my guitar.  My finger tips hurt!

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!
