As you may recall, a cheerfully apologetic sign in the window promised wistfully that our corner shop would be opened for Christmas. The sign is still there, and though there has been much progress on ‘the residence’ out the back, there has been no grand opening, indeed no sign of progress in the shop itself. The same sign is there, and cobwebs, dead leaves and dust have accumulated on the window sill.
