What’s been happening in St Albans?

Now over to all of you. Do come and join us in our Saturday six-word musings.

I’ll admit that many of us openly break the numeric rule and share far more words (all excellent of course!) so the key rule is to have a title of six words – and then create around that the post that you desire! Perhaps in bunches of 6 words if you’re feeling inspired.

To join the challenge, please put a link in your post to the URL of this post. Then come back here and leave us a comment. If you have any problems with linking, just put your own URL into the comment. And do feel free to socialise digitally – tweet, instagram, flickr, etc. with the hashtags #SixWordSaturday and #6WS.

  1. Hi Debbie

    Filming Wonka there? You find the most fun and fascinating things to share!

    And am I ever embarrassed. Not only am I tardy in commenting on your great 6WS post, I also misspelled Smythe! (Which has now been corrected.) Years ago, I had a great boss who’s surname was “Stith.” He had to regularly send out a memo (yes an actual “memo” in those days before email) reminding people it was “Stith. Not  Smitt. Not Smith. Not Smythe.” You must feel the same at times?

    Here’s my Six on Saturday offering:

    • I’m always late doing things on the blog, so no worries, Basje.
      And the misspellings don’t bother me either. I just find it quite amusing. “Smith with a y” as I usually have to explain my name, was the common way of spelling back in the day, especially in Scotland and Ireland. Nowadays, a lot of people view it as a posh Smith, and adding an e to Smythe makes it posher still.
      And I have to sympathise with Mr Stith 🙂

  2. How thrilling and messy! We have a St.Albans in Albany CA. I should get some photos.
    Here’s my SWS


    • It is the prequel to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory – Wonka before he met Charlie.
      They have also filmed in Oxford, Lyme Regis and Bath. Due to be released in spring 2023. I’ll definitely watch it to spot St Albans, and some other great British locations.

    • I didn’t spot any and not sure who was in that part of the film. Timothée Chalamet was definitely there, but I didn’t see him. The area was well blocked! And do say if you come over – I know the places for coffee and beer!
