Five Things

1. Sutton Council are hopeless when it comes to telling us when our bins are being emptied over Christmas/New Year. Other roads had stickers stuck to their bins giving details of collection days, but we didn't get any. Sutton Council's website has the info, but the refuse operatives still turn up at random days and refuse [get it?] to touch the bin if it's over 6 inches from the kerbside.

2. Mr Ink on Central Road sends the store's contact details by Bluetooth to my mobile every time I walk past. Which is getting a tad irritating now. I would cross the road, but it means walking past The Hunstman. I'd rather Bluetooth than no-teeth.

3. The roads are so clear now that I got to work half an hour quicker this morning. Which is great, until you realise it makes your working day half an hour longer.

4. Ryan Gate was about the only place open on Christmas Day for those who had run out of bread. It's just a shame they don't sell bread.

5. Tomorrow is the final day at Woolworths in North Cheam. If it's anything like the Woolies in New Malden on its final day, expect a queue of grave-robbers snaking right around the store and a scrum to grab the the very last of the pic'n'mix.

I was in the west country a couple of days ago and wandered into a local Woolworth's to discover everything had been sold apart from some shop fixtures, a pile of Bratz dolls noone would take even for next to nothing, and a pile of the autobiography of someone whose name escapes me but the sub-title was "my life in Duran Duran". They say "scraping the bottom of the barrel" but what actually is at the bottom of the barrel? Now I know, Bratz dolls and Duran Duran autobiographies.

Hah! number 1 is why I'm glad I live in Worcester Park but come under Epsom and Ewell instead of Sutton.

1. I live in Washington Road and I got a sticker about the bin days so no complaints there.
2. There's no one in the Hunstman so you'll be safe. I passed the other night and the bouncer was the only one there.
3. Get the train and then you'll always be on time........NOT
4. Costcutter was open 9 till 5 and had loads of bread and other essentials
5. Bye bye Woolies and the one in Sutton is open till 5 Jan I think

I made a huge error by entering New Malden Woolies on it's closing day. Your description of 'Grave Robbers' is the most accurate I have seen. It was a sad sight on a very sad day.....
