Re: A life time ban from that "other place"...

LED Reading Glasses

In Lidl this week are these handy LED Reading glasses which come in a range of magnifications and include a spare set of batteries, and all for about £3 if I recall correctly……..these are ideal for the wee jobs where one struggles due to a combination of old age and poor light conditions.

Re: Leaves on the line

When I saw the title of this thread I immediately thought this was a trip down memory lane to the land of Reggie Perrin...... I loved his excuses for always being late at work, like “leaves on the line at Golders Green” and “Frozen points at Clapham Junction”........ showing my age now I suspect, bu...
