It’s nice, is ice…

Christmas is a-coming and the geese are getting fat, but this year here in Smalltown we’re going to be missing one essential ingredient from the festive jollity – we’re not getting our ice rink! Oh dear!

What could have gone wrong? Every year we have an ice rink in the shopping centre, specially installed so that the local residents can enjoy the fun of watching other residents fall on their bums. It’s all a great laugh and such a jolly jape. Trouble is that it seems there’s no money for it this year – which is odd considering that our Smalltown Opportunities for Business head honcho, Mark Tyme, has spent the entire year telling us what a boom town we’re living in and how well off we are.

He commented “Unfortunately last year the weather was just too nice and the ice melted. Ticket sales were down and the company we used to set it all up went bust! We’ve found an alternative but they just want too much money! We expect to get it all sorted out for next year though!”

So in the meantime, the only ice we’ll be getting this Christmas will be in our G&T on Christmas morning.

We’re so lucky to live here…

  1. Not entirely relevant, but Christmas has come early for one eatery in Nottingham – popped in yesterday and most of the front of house staff were wearing seasonal attire, including one sporting an Advent Calendar jumper and another wearing a Santa hat. Apparently something do to with Halloween (?) and the launch of the Christmas Dinner menu (which was nowhere to be seen).

  2. hmmmm sounds fairly typical of Nottingham, which eatery was this so I can avoid it when I am in the city later today?

  3. Is it the one next to ALDIS?
