... We ran into Maureen twice while walking around the shopping area.
We did find the items we were wanted, along with a few used books from the charity shop and custard tarts from Teale's bakery - something Paul misses almost as much as fish and chips and pork pies.

My connection to Boundary Mill is that it is owned by the son-in-law of my first boss and the company I co-founded with him, Tharstern, is at the back of the store.
