John's Last Week
Slightly funereal atmosphere in our house, as it's John's last week. John is our local butcher who is retiring on Saturday after many years of serving the local community with Smithfield Market's finest. To say Ms T will miss him is something of an understatement; the question of where we will go for our sausages is one of the key points of conversation at Hendo Towers.
Ms T is not too downhearted, however. She claims butchers are enjoying a renaissance as bourgeois South London spurns the supermarkets. It's just a question of finding someone who'll replicate John's attention to quality and keen pricing. Watch this space.
