    I popped in to see Simon the Cheesemonger today at the Teddington Cheese in Teddington.

    He’s into his football and told me that his team, Reading were showing some severe interest in young Bradley Potts and they nearly bought him for 600,000 in the January transfer window. It would be a great shame to lose him. Fingers crossed.

    I bought some exquisite Brie and artisan biscuits. A bit pricey but excellent cheese.

    Hi Vesp

    It’s been absolutely wonderful thank you. I must say I have been somewhat of a berk over the last few days since Paul Heckingbottom’s unceremonious departure; my partner has told me I have been a real mope around the house.

    However, I went for a wonderful cycle today down into Teddington, picked up some cheese, biscuits and a bottle of Amarone. Life is good!

    George.

    I will drive him to Reading and pay for the petrol out of my own pocket. They can have him for free too.

    Oh George,

    I do wish I could replicate your carefree lifestyle, alas my crushing debt and several mistresses don't allow for such frivolities.

    Enjoy your cheese.

    Terry.

    I’ve entered into several individual voluntary arrangements over the last few years. Debt is just a number!

    I worked with a Jewish lad in the late 80's. He was a real cheese buff. In 1992 he left South
    Yorkshire and settled in the capital of Northern Israel and eventually opened a deli.
    He called it " Cheeses of Nazareth."
