Pretty Vacant

Intentionally Blank

I used to see this message quite often in the 1980s and 1990s in computer manuals at work. It was a bit of light relief in what was usually quite a tedious read.

But today it’s made me quite cross.


Door World

Door World

This is the nearest shop to where I live – just a few minutes walk away. In view of what’s sold there,  I thought it’d be ironic to photograph it when it was closed.

However, it doesn’t seem to be open during the day either. We need some new doors for downstairs, and wanting to support our nearest and local business popped along there to see what they have on offer. No-one was there when we went in apart from a man working in the adjacent workshop. Although we made ourselves known to him, he didn’t come into the shop to help us make a choice.

So we took our choice elsewhere to the not so local, national business in Swindon – B & Q – where a most helpful man who specialises in doors soon ordered just what we wanted.
