There used to be a wonderful stall on Norwich Market that sold tripe of all types, chitterlings, cow heel and udder - I'd stop there most mornings on my way to the art school studios to pick up a selection for my lunch - it's such a shame that it's not there any more

I'm a retired female of 5'7" - I've always been quite strong (farmer's daughter and ex-smallholder) I've always used border spades and forks - perfectly up to most jobs if you use them sensibly.  I value my back
