|All set up and ready to go|
I am so excited! We visited Jaycotts.co.uk on Friday and I came away with a brand new overlocker. I am thoroughly delighted with it and wanted to share my first look at it with you.

This is Alex Jaycott demonstrating my new overlocker in the Chester store. Just look at the bank of sewing threads behind him!
I must tell you a story, it is apropriate I promise you! After we left Jaycotts.co.uk on Friday we headed to Sheffield. Unfortunately we got stuck in a snow drift. Eventually we were freed and headed on towards Sheffield by a different route.
Led by the vicar, the Rev Mompesson, the town sealed itself off and quarantined itself so as not to allow the plague to spread further. At least 273 victims died, although the number does vary according to whoever is telling the story.
In order to eat, villagers placed money in vinegar which was supose to kill the germs, on a stone on top of the hill and there outsiders exchanged it for food. They placed a whole ring of large stones around the outskirts of the town so people would know not to pass through them.
