Runes and Rhinestones

I'm a modern day Viking, navigating my way through a stormy sea of stuff.

Hometown going down the drain.

on March 8, 2013

Seriously, you know that when there’s a Wetherspoons that has moved into a small coastal town, things have gone to pot. Plus it looks a little bit trippy, so maybe that was the entire idea… There’s the link. I’m appalled beyond words, possibly because I remember Deal from a child’s perspective of ice-cream parlours, small cafes and sweet shops. Oh, and the M&S where my Nanan and Grandad used to do their shopping. Ah Deal, you already had your fair share of pubs that were acceptable to drink in, why did you have to sell out to Spoons? Spoons is a giant chain of pubs throughout the UK, if you haven’t heard of it I’ll envy you, then come live with you because I need a holiday. Additional skills: I bake a damn fine cake, I’m an excellent drinking partner, read like a fiend and am brilliant at entertaining children. Plus you know, absolutely bonkers and therefore hilarious to watch.

I think the tiredness is getting to me – not much is making sense any more.

    i have most definitely never heard of spoons. i’m imagining it to be the equivalent of tgi friday’s or applebee’s here in the u.s. the attitude about them is definitely the same if we are anything alike!

    Ah, the dreaded spoons. Swansea is full of them. Can’t argue with cheap pub grub though. Even if the atmosphere, ingredients and general surroundings are questionable… Lol. I love your blog, your writing is hilarious x

    Well now, see, I can’t agree with you here, darling girl. Have just had coffee in the (admittedly ridiculously named!) Sir Norman Wisdom with a couple of your aunties. The coffee was perfectly acceptable AND 15p cheaper than the little coffee shop we usually use (although we’ll probably carry on going to that one with Grannie twice a week), and nobody batted an eyelash at Lilly wandering around.This is the problem with the other local establishments. They either aren’t open when we want a quick coffee with a child and the shopping, or the other patrons look down their noses and tut at small people, or we simply can’t afford them. If only the other places would make themselves a bit more family friendly, we’d use them more! They aren’t going to claw much business back from a warm, comfortable and inexpensive place by offering nasty chilly damp so-called Family Rooms or the pub garden!
