Life Skills 26:  We first drank a Rombouts drip coffee at the charming Geffrye Museum in East London; it came with a matching cup and biscuit instantlyDouble coffee drippers besotting us.  As the popularity spread inexperienced staff (which seemed to be most of them) would overfill the dripper leaving the drinker to deal with an overflowing cup.  We bought our first drippers certainly for decades and found them sadly gutless, using two improved the situation a bit.

Sunday fortnight a charity fair in the Hasketon Victory Hall, a quid to get in but that does include refreshments.

PC Tipswhat3words three metre squaresWe have friends who were living down an unmade road between Dennington and Stradbroke.  Their dish washer overheated and filled the house with thick smoke.  They heard the fire engine siren approach the end of the road ... and then go away.  The what3words app would have helped.  It divides the world into a grid of three metre squares and assigns each a unique three word address.  We hadn't worked out even a modest house will have more than one address.

Worried too many people might turn up at your coffee morning?  Garden fete?  Swingers' party?  Don't do promotion on nearthecoast then.

New Street Market WoodbridgeIn the Woodbridge Thoroughfare after 25 years the Leather and Sheepskin Shop closed in the spring, the Firestation Cafe also closed but more recently and the new to us New Street Market looks very attractive and appears to contain an outpost of the Pump Street Bakery ... they do have a fan club.
