Thank you to John for his witty 'away' message, and thanks for the concern and good wishes in my briefer than expected absence.
Saturday's Spring Fair of the Norfolk & Norwich Philatelic Society had, as the title suggests, its good points and bad points.
Good point 1 was that one of my friends had some 2nd class Machin from kiloware in which we found a copy of the 'scarce-but-increasingly-available' self-adhesive 2010 coil (the 'Sunday Times' stamp). So now I have one for my collection.
Good point 2 was that the weather was good and dry and the walk down to the Trafford Arms for lunch was well worthwhile.
Good point 3 was that I found quite a few postcards to use for my maximum card collection.
The afternoon took a turn for the worse around 3.45 when one of the members asked if I would help push-start a visitor's car. That took two attempts and when the car started I failed to stop, crashed to the ground and can recall very little else until I was at the hospital A&E department suffering from concussion, severe bruising on my writing hand, and liberally elastoplastered!
Fortunately a couple of days' rest seem to have speeded recovery, the bruising has gone down and so I am back online.
Predictably there is a slight back-up on orders, which I shall attempt to despatch before the Easter break. There is more news on GB stamps, but that will have to wait until tomorrow.
