I was enjoying a day at the seaside at Longsands, Tynemouth. Itís always this sunny, honest!

My parents have a pack of these - though I think they might be the Landor ones mentioned by corporate-wage-slave , as I don't recall the design on the reverse being the same.

I remember there being speculation about this one for some time - with business travel severely curtailed it was always particularly vulnerable during Covid.
