In the Saddle: No horsing around for me

Well, there's not been much I can do riding-wise these last few weeks as I still have a shoulder injury. I can get on my horse but the difficulty comes in dismounting where I need to take my weight in both my shoulders to dismount.

Pot lids by F and R Pratt.

Antiques Column: The lids are alright for collectors

Recently we bought a new kettle. The old one was very battered and we’d had it for years. I imagine it had probably heated up the equivalent the Ladybower reservoir during its long and exciting kettle life.
