Well here's a turn up for the books. I'm actually out enjoying myself in a bar in Bury St Edmunds. But it's not just any old bar, it's So Bar in Langton Place, which is the new host for our LETS group.
For anyone who doesn't know what a LETS (Local Exchange Trading System) group is, all I can say it's the best thing since sliced bread and is perfect for today's economy. Not only can you have a good laugh to cheer yourself up, you can also get stuff without paying any cash, like these DVDs I've got for the kids. It's a simple system akin to bartering.
So if you're in Bury St Edmunds at this very minute, do come along to visit our group. We'll be at So Bar until about 9.30pm. And if you can't make it tonight, come along on the first Tuesday of every month (7.30pm - 9.30pm) with the exception of August. See www.burylets.org.uk for details.
And if you don't live nearby but want to find your local group, visit www.letslinkuk.net
P.S. Did anyone notice I am blogging live?...I'm now going back to join in the chat!
