I've got the apple, now to make sauce - for the 'Big Day' meal, of course....but wait and hold fire and don't peel a sprout, I hear you shout.......Monkey Man! - Alas! - Your apple is glass!
Tuesday - Well there I was, sitting in a layby in deepest Shropshire speaking to Malcolm about retro styles! - let me explain!

Philip Serrell and Roo Irvine had a good rummage in our shop and yet again - left with some attractive goodies to sell. Philip also brought Daphne the dog along so she took centre stage! The crew were fabulous as [...]
