Autumn, cheese and pizza.
Autumn has arrived . It's almost chilly . On his way to the market Angus wonders if he should go back and get a jumper. And to think that only last week it seemed as if the heat would never end.
The first cheese lady is wrapped up for arctic conditions in a thick fleece and fur lined boots. There are two cheese ladies at the local market. Both of them developed cancer at exactly the same time , went into the same hospital, were operated on the same week , and have now returned . Hard working, uncomplaining, always laughing. Glass half full people. Angus buys Salers and Brie from one , ' the font ' buys goats cheeses from the other.
The mayor of the small market town clearly has money left over in the budget. Planters have appeared in the most unlikely places. A line of four placed on the pavement in front of the market hall. Another six luxuriating cheerfully in front of the war memorial.
At the pizza restaurant a new addition to their repertoire . #23. The Compostella. Prawns, scallops, parsley and cheese.
