Nowadays people sleep with their friends, or people they have just met (god I sound really really old)

    So Ladyshopper... no kissing, no rude bits and if you do rude bits... make sure you have been to the chemist before....

    Only joking, enjoy life to the full

    Today they had walked half a mile down the hill onto the green. I pulled over to take a pic and as I was driving away I watched them chase a bus. A lady was cowering in the bus stop
