'ey up TWTD,
Can anyone recommend some decent places to stay in Suffolk?
Taking a young lady to see our beautiful county for the first time (ITFC game included, naturally) and wondered if any of you had tips on the best places to stay.
Ideally, somewhere on the coast or near to the AONB would be great. A couple of decent places to eat/drink nearby wouldn't hurt either. Seen a few nice looking places in Aldeburgh but any other suggestions?
Not sure mother's box room in Lowestoft has the required ambience :)
And if the lady's really lucky, she'll catch crabs in Walberswick too
Thanks in advance x

Not sure if this is a wind-up by someone else and how TfL got through Legal if not....

Roast beef, Yorkshire puddings and gravy, plus a good walk are the keys to de-stressing on a Sunday.
My sage (geddit) advice was ignored, then all hell breaks loose.
Lessons to be learnt here.
Think on, TWTD.
|Pub etiquette: a case study in moral decline|
at 12:44 29 Oct 2019
Last night I attended a music recital. At one point a young chap (transfixed on his phone, of course) bumped into me, spilling half my pint. He apologised and walked away quickly. Now, is it just me or should he have at least offered a replacement? That's the way I was brought up anyhow.
That got me thinking and must say I've noticed a sharp increase in people ignoring the traditional pub queue as well, just ordering whenever the bar staff ask, instead of correctly pointing out the people who were there before.
Another incident was a mate of mine putting a 50p on a pool table to reserve our spot a while ago. Isn't that normal? The chaps playing didn't seem to think so and told him to remove it before things got physical. We played darts instead.
Are these noble British traditions still in practice elsewhere, or have I merely been unlucky? Whatever the case, it's certainly worrying.

According to the figures Mr Hunt presented, it would cost £30k for each person to become effectively 're-homed' so to speak. There are, according to Shelter, roughly 320,000 homeless people in the UK, the world's fifth-richest country. That amounts to £9.6bn. How much should our wonderful new leader put towards this?

Just received my first jury summons. Who's done it, what should I expect?
Obviously varies case by case but anything to note?
I'm quite excited by it, actually.

Is the face of the new £50 note. Very nice touch from the BoE that. A great man I'm sure we can all agree.

Part #673264 of the TWTD Moral Maze...
Should thinking of someone else while being intimate with your partner be considered cheating?
Now, the reason I ask this is that there is a lovely lady I work with who may be having a 'psychic affair' with yours truly. I don't want to cause any harm to her relationship by continuing to be a sexy distraction. For all I know, this sexual dissonance has already caused major rows.
I know I've thought about a lot of different things when 'on the job', like what to have for dinner, what I really should have said in that meeting, etc. But none of those things would be considered being unfaithful.
Am I wrong to be concerned?

That was a scary ten minutes or so. Is everyone ok? Has anything drastic happened during downtime?
I had a kinder bueno.

Mother has just been quoted £1,200 to have her 2x2m bathroom fitted out. That seems excessive, doesn't it? It's in Lowestoft for context, and she wants the new bath, sink etc plumbed in, about half the bathroom tiled and a new floor laid.
Over a grand for a two-day, one-man job is a bit much, innit? Or am I out of touch?
Guidance welcome, as are any recommendations...
