The usual social whirl you know, we started with the Polio Fellowship collection which wasn't on the Wirral this time , it was at Sealand Ind Est Tesco at Chester, the traffic was very light, strange for a morning rush hour. We did 9 through till 11am when we were relieved, it wasn't a bad start with about 60% of people giving something and even a couple of notes going in the tins. We also had some interesting conversations. Then we headed off to Waitrose in Chester, shopped then coffee and cake, a much much better cafe than at Northwich branch, must say something next time, we had a delicious fresh juicy Apfelstrudel.Then we headed home and called in at the post office to offload the orders, we were quite busy yesterday and again today. Perhaps it's the end of month syndrome! Here is a shot of Mandy tin in hand at Tesco's this morning.
Next we called around to St Oswalds to see if anyone had showed to fit the lamps and had a look at progress on the toilet block. They are just finishing off the base so next week or so the actual structure should be going up, in other words the brickwork so far is below floor level- it's all on a steep slope. The church looked good in the bright sunshine, a change to have it dry. The north looks like being cloudy again on Mon/Tues but it looks much better for the south so perhaps back on the Bristol or Reading option. Photo progress at St Oswalds, there was too much shadow for a decent image of the works. I got all today's DVD and cine orders ready in Mandys car for tomorrow as I'll be out early heading up to Manchester for the Boyle St museum spring sale., remember we are there just the Saturday this year. Now I've moved on to copying 16mm cine film, I've got a large reel on which is about a Finnish motorcyclist with Stuart Hall ( boo hiss) narrating, but dubbed into French. I've a few reels to copy but nothing like the heap I had last time.
