Wren on a 1937 farthing At midnight 54 years ago today the farthing stopped being legal tender.  We always thought it charmingly suitable that the smallest British coin had the tiny (the goldcrest is the smallest) British bird the wren on the reverse ... so comforting that the wren population, around Framlingham at least, seems to be increasing.

#bloodychristmas ... eh?So how was your Christmas?  Challenging?  You're not alone.  Lots of people on the Market Hill Framlingham looking not quite Fram but the only stall was the bread stall, the Co-op was busy but not hectic and whilst we were away training has picked up a second fave.

Marmite jar on its sideLife Skills 3:  Those large jars of Marmite which seem to be the default these days have flats on the sides.  No doubt something to do with how they pack in a box but it has the unintended consequence that you can put the jar on its side, leave for while and get the last couple of spreadings out a bit easier.

recorded deliveryLife Skills 1:  When sending a letter (a letter not an email) to a big organisation use recorded (or special) delivery not because it's more likely to get there but because big organisations use the Royal Mail barcode to log the letter's arrival, without it they'll have no record the letter arrived.
