Meanwhile in the neighbourhood…

The neighbours’ car is still out there on the street. Obviously someone’s noticed its uncared-for status; people seem to have started dumping litter inside it. Maybe the reason nobody’s taken it is that, apart from being a crap car, maybe it doesn’t work?

POT SPOT WATCH:Yes, the Pot Spot is still gone. No sign of a last minute resurrection of their long running closing down sale. Makes me wonder if we shouldn’t support local business a bit more. Okay, in the two-ish years we’ve lived here, we haven’t actually wanted or needed any kind of terra-cotta garden accessory. But couldn’t we have bought some anyway? Just a few small ones? Maybe that could have somehow figuratively lifted the figurative straw that broke the figurative camel’s figurative back?
