Oh didn't know that folks - thanks for the tip off. I was getting worried as thought I might have to take my purse when we went out  ::)
I will have a look cos he's still on about them!
Oh and to carry on with the moan, I also went into Monsoon, not been in for a while and thought they may have a dress in I liked. I noticed they have condensed the clothes and brought out the tat at the back of the shop  >:(

We have spent a few hours in Chesterfield today ( Whoopy Doo - not! )
Hubby fancied a new suit for the wedding we are going to over Christmas period.
He doesn't want black or Grey as he has one!
Burtons - hardly anything
Marks & Spencer - nope - they are not in fashion!!
BHS - Nope!
Greenwoods - nothing he fancied  >:(

Midway through tramming round for the elusive suit we called at Costa Coffee for a quick drink. Hubby had a Latte which looked more like hot milk without coffe and I had a cafe cooler which was tasteless - I left most of it!! >:(

I was looking for  fascinator  for the wedding - only shop who has a decent selection is 'She'

We then called in at the new Meadowfresh cafe where Hudsons used to be.
The cup of tea was ok I had but had to stem back permanent retching as the smell of raw meat was wafting over to the cafe side and I hate the smell.

Toddled off to Debenhams
 Hubby got a suit and was well chuffed as they had a good selection

Back at home he's flipping moaning as it's only got imitation pockets on the outside ( it has pockets which are usable inside! )  >:(

He can go on his own next time - worse than women for shopping are these men!

Moan over  ;)

It really begs the question "Where will it all end?"

I suppose we'll all be sat at home drinking cheap supermarket booze...  :(

Or a relaxing mug of Milo before retiring - will do your old mans skin good  ;)

As you know from my Employment and Support Allowance thread I had a friend who hung himself he was only 30 years old at the time of his death. The whole assessment processes was too much for him as he suffered from various mental health issues I wished he had picked up the phone and rung me but I think in his case he was in meltdown by then . Its bad enough when that happens but in the Richie Edwards case its a total mystery his parents have no closure he was legally declared dead in 2008 so his parents could sort out his estate. When someone goes missing and it drags on for years, the family are in limbo they cant deal with the persons estate because its feared that the person may turn up . Sorry to hear about your cousin Fly.

Not sure if you have picked up on this from another thread but I have been supporting someone with M/H problems for over 12 months now. Last year was really bleak and very concerning as it was looking likely an attempt to end their life would be achieved sooner or later. 15 months later and lots of support and hard work by the person concerned and things are so much better.  (y)

I noticed this morning the Crooked Spire pub on Church Way is now boarded up.  I don't know what the plans are, but it doesn't look like it will be reopening any time soon if they've taken the effort to cover all windows and doors

Shame about that as you say it's a lot of trouble to board it up if it's short term.

The Duke would probably be looked upon as Royalty and to have him shopping there ( if it was him ) would certainly be advertised to encourage business do you think?

Looking at these again I'm wondering where the Presto's was and also the cabins in the photo above it?
It looks very familiar but can't remember where/what it was?

Sorry can't help on that one I did ask my aunt who is staying with us - she's 87 but she has no knowledge of who the Royalty would have been.
She tells me that back then as a young girl going into Chesterfield was a big treat and they didn't go very often.
If you do find out would you post and let us know please  :)

Cheers JR.
I have looked at the journey's in the past, don't some through Chesterfield?
I know they can be pricey as well, shame about the weather though as the scenery is the big part of the journey to me.

The ones I find strange are the lurkers. I really don't see the point of joining a discussion forum and then not joining in the discussions? Unless of course it's for purposes of plagiarism?

You are spot on with that JR, as that definitely does happen - that is a fact!!  ;)

Two of my male friends took their own lives in their 20's, I always wondered what drove one to do that but the other one did this because his wife had left him  :(

Some just need to cop out of the life they have, others maybe are just fed up and want a clean sweep - a new start.

Sometimes I wish I could just friggin vanish.  ::) - and the first one to say 'so do I' just be warned - I will set my cat onto you  >:
