Mr Smith’s Corner


Our resident contributor, father of four and high-flying partner, Mr Smith, gives us his thoughts for the week…


Hola! Joining you this week from the Smiths’  National Lampoon’s European Vacation in Espana. Guess what… it is BOILING! Although the good news for once is my freckles seem to have merged collectively into some form of tan colouring, as opposed my usual ‘white with a hint of burnt’.


Sad news this week with the passing of Cilla Black. Her career spanned 50 years from 60s pop star to 1980s TV superstar, ruling the Saturday night airways for 20 years with Blind Date. You see with Blind Date there was  always the chance that some contestant from your home town would turn up and make a complete idiot of themselves – when you are from Birmingham that happened a lot!!
Lesson learnt:

Always read the label carefully.
In a vain attempt to maintain some level of fitness this holiday I have been cutting out the carbs so no bread for Mr Smith! According to Mrs S ‘there are worse things than bread’. Here’s 8 things to avoid – I note San Miguel is not on that list – so all good then!
