Filkins

Here’s a drawing for a change. This is from Glossary: my guide to Gloucestershire Place names and I’m dropping this in to celebrate the launch of my new website, which is over here.

The new site is not yet finished, I’ve been busy isolating myself.

Filkins

Filkins: Bits found in your pocket after they’ve been put on a hot wash by your nearest and dearest. Tiny white dots are now evenly distributed like super glued dots all over the garment, and are as permanent as any printed pattern.

Framilode: Very heavy shopping, that clinks.

France Lynch: Meaning neither here nor there, many applications.


All three of the above place names are in Gloucestershire and in fact I used to live in dear old France Lynch. Framilode is by the River Severn, don’t go here, it’s undiscovered and needs to stay that way. Lovely spot, unlike Filkins which are a pain in the neck.
