Scary Mask! And playing arkwright - a look around the village store
27 July 2017

What a lovely first week off, using up some annual leave to spend some time down in Devon. Before I went, I put on the Gatineau product of the month, the Defilift mask - and after about 20 minutes this happened!~ Good job I live alone, haha! it felt nice after tho. We don't sell anything like that down in the village shop, as lots of Facebookers noted when they watched this video i took this week!

village store - a look behind the scenes

And I also found something that tickled me when I was out and about this week - 

Funny Moment in a car park in Torrington...


Did a lot of driving this week too, and listened to two tales on audiobook...

Book of the Week is Camino Island by John Grisham, and also there's a free audible exclusive short story from the brilliant Ben Aaronovitch, read by the outstanding Kobna holdbrook Smith - can you tell they are my faves? go here for more.

Medical Detection Dogs update - do find out more about the latest media appearances from these clever canines and their owners, and Dr Claire Guest, the founder who has now discovered they can help with early detection of Parkinson's disease too. Fabulous. More here including the link to buy the £5 raffle tickets that may win you a prize worth over £400! Enter before Aug 13th.
