Lazy Sunday


Neglected to take the camera out this weekend so no pics- so here is Big Al Davies doing a fine version of an old song . Not sure who wrote it but Peter Sellers does a good version on one of his Greatest Hits CD's ( also sings it on YouTube on Parkinson I think ).
Anyway, didn't do much yesterday but had a lovely take away curry in the evening to celebrate our anniversary. We were going to go out but decided against it.
Today we went to Aldi and I made a delicious onion,carrot and potato soup for lunch ( even if I say so myself ). This afternoon went to the Antique fair at nearby Craft Centre ( on the way to Chester ). Hazel bought a nice silver match holder with interesting dents in it. She's going to keep her "memories" in it- whatever they might be. I didnt find anything though looked at a few thimbles for the Chad Valley Skiffle Washboard I bought last week. They were far too expensive. Will try the charity shops tomorrow. Archie wanted some enamel badges for his collection but the stall wasnt there this time much to his annoyance.
So no duck feeding today you'll be glad to hear!

Do you think you can take pictures on Flickr of Archie's badges? Just curious to see what they look like.

They are similar to those already uploaded at Flickr Angelica. Mostly roundtin ones but he has some enamel ones too. I'll try and scan some more today.

I think it's a George Formby song.

You could well be right Roger though i dont have it on the several Formby Lp's and CD's I have.

Just discovered several versions of this song on YouTube. One by Dave Swarbrick and Martin Carthy is very nice- they credit two writers but not george formby.

if you got to youtube and search for 'hotun'you'll find another version of this song with a young chap auditioning for a band called The Salford Sheiks
