  1. The Last time…Part One….. https://theorkneynews.scot/2022/01/05/the-last-time/

    And now….

    The last time we had a fish supper from the Peedie Chippie
    We didn’t know it was the last time.

    The last time we had lunch at Julia’s
    We didn’t know it was the last time.

    And the last time I bought my knickers from M&Co
    I didn’t know it was the last time.

    Will it be another empty high-street shop?
    Or something ‘touristy’?
