  • Located in the market town of Cockermouth in northern England’s Lake District, J.B.Banks & Son Ltd ironmongers and hardware shop was established in 1836. To date, this spellbinding shop has survived two serious floods and three truck crashes, and boasts a counter-top decorated with keys and pre-decimal coins, an ornate National Cash Register and an enchanting chiming clock.

On Thursday my pc fell over so seriously that, after two days of trying to fix the booting issues, I installed Windows again.

This morning, it’s told me it needs to catch up on a few updates rolled out since the factory install disk was burnt.

I’m off out. It may have sorted itself by the time I get back.
