How's your day?

Thanks Engineer, now the next thing I've got to learn is, how to make contacts. I sent a test message to my sister in law, but then again, I do have her details, mob, email etc. I assume one needs to swap details.

Yes, Leabrooks and Somercotes are still there. Somercotes cordoned off last week due to a serious assault in, of all places, the Co-op! Someone pinched someone else's Divi number, I think. Sadly, one person has died of their injuries so it is now a murder enquiry.


Somercotes has changed. The factories, including Viyella, are gone and replaced with the ubiquitous and predictable McDonald's, Aldi and The Range.  Probably looks better when it's covered in snow!

Facetious? Me? Come now, I wouldn't know the meaning of the word.  I don't honestly know what the incident was about except that it involved four men in the Co-op and one later died of injuries sustained.


Somercotes, sadly, is no stranger to murders. Some years ago, a young woman of oriental connections was brutally murdered on what had been the site of the Viyella factory, standing derelict and overgrown at the time. I believe someone was brought to book for that but it took some time to track him down.
