Jerk…shudder…grumble…jerk…jerk…shudder… The van wasn’t happy. It protested most forcefully at being asked to move in the cold, very cold, morning that we had. It grumbled and shuddered and jerked and told us, in no uncertain terms, that it was most displeased with the mere one degree temperature it was being asked to perform in.

No, the … Continue reading Boxing Day Bargains
