... did she say anything when I said I could only work until 5 instead of 5:30 (as that is the shop closing time) because I lived in the country and the last bus went at 5:10. She even offered me an electrical fire place and a bottle of champagne for my new flat...which ill get to in a few minutes.  The ladies at the woollen mill were shocked I was leaving early but were also understanding and even excited for me. I worked out my months notice and it made for a nice ...

He eventually just barged out as he couldn't stand being in such a ...

... are in for an early lunch. Large marquees are being set up in a field - we find out that there is a car rally on this weekend and also a group of 700 cyclists setting off to do the End to End journey Our final leg is to get to Wick to catch the train.   We know that it is (only) 30 kilometres to Wick and we can get either the local bus or a taxi if needed.   Seeing neither when we are ready to go, we decide to simply ride anyway. It is not a bad ride, actually a lot more ...
