Since the shop closed, David and I have met up, most Friday mornings, in Tilley's. This excellent little café has, through three different ownerships, been a provider of sticky buns and coffee to David, Nina and I at Cotswold Bookstore.
We were therefore upset to discover that Clive, the latest to run the place, has left for retirement. For years we have enjoyed his insults and rudeness and the place won't seem the same with out him. To sit with a cuppa and not have someone ask when we're going or demand payment in advance because one of us looks a little off colour is a little boring.
All the best then Clive and if you see us out and about, do stop and have a word, especially if it's rude one.
