I woke up this morning to discover I now live in a city and not a town. Anybody else here love in one of the 8?

That was meant to say live, but I think I will leave it.

Also I had no idea Colchester wasn't already a city.

With great power comes great responsibility.

Not in the latest 8, but I had a similar experience 20 or so years ago. I'm still getting used to it.

Thanks. Did you notice much, if any change at all?

Cunning move by Spurs to host the Rugby League Challenge Cup final yesterday.

 

There was actually Silverware on the premises!

People who call Marks & Spencer “Marks & Sparks”. Why? Where is this from? And if the answer is simply that it rhymes, Mencer & Spencer sounds much better.

It is clearly endorsed by the organisation as their loyalty card is called a Sparks card

Apparently first used by the Sunday Times in the 60s purely for the rhyme.

Just come back from attending the Indy 500, which is essentially F1 on steroids. Utterly crazy experience.

FTFY.

Spent the afternoon lounging outside and reading some pocket diaries my nan found, belonging to her mum & dad, from 1943 & 1944. My great-grandad served in the RAF throughout WWII and my great-nan joined the WAAFs in 1942.
 

His were quite interesting, lots about work and, unsurprisingly, ‘Gerry’. But hers…wow. She died when I was 2, which is a shame as I absolutely LOVE her goss! Would’ve loved to chat about the partying and the drinking and the sheer number of men…she was engaged to five different blokes, one of whom while she started going out with my great-grandad, in the space of about 6 months. She was a right goer!

 

This is the side of the war I want to hear about :D
