Carpets and pancakes

 Guess what? The wool from one in seven British sheep is spun, dyed and woven into first class carpets by Brintons of Kidderminster! One of those venerable British firms you'd imagine would be outsourcing production to Eastern Europe or beyond. But everything's still made a stone's throw from the site of the original factory.

When I arrived today I was nearly mown down by the Mayor running the pancake race through the town centre. He'd given up on flipping though!
