Shopping day at Tesco. A real nightmare. We have to follow arrows around the store but many are paying no heed. I had forgotten mangoes 🥭 for my husband and had to go back and then being admonished by an elderly man. Quite right except that so many were doing the same. Shambles being the operative word. Anyway, it took me ages and luckily I do use the zapper so not having to queue for too long but nevertheless, not a happy experience. Home now and relaxing with a glass of wine. Well, you have to don’t you?🙂🙂
My shopping trip to iceland was just the opposite.
There where only three customers in the shop and no one at all outside waiting to go in.
Managed to get everything I usually get even chicken peaces floor marked out for distancing although I was not happy with the check out when the girl on the till put my stuff through while the previous customer was still packing her shopping and giving me looks because I wouldn't walk down to the end to pay until the other customer had gone
Don't be kind to people. Being kind is seen as a weakness
Greetings from mild, breezy and mostly sunny Oxfordshire.
A broken night here thanks to a sudden rain shower at about 4.15am. The rain lashed against the bedroom windows and woke me up. OH slept through it of course, as did YD. I couldn't get back to sleep for ages because Mr Thrush started singing about three quarters of an hour later.
The washing is on the line and drying well.
Two large bags of chicken feed have arrived. That's the hens sorted for round about the next three months.
YD has had her weekly talk with one of her tutors, who has given her some advice (and a shortcut) about how to add feathers to her cat/bird figure, Emucat.
This is another of the eggs that she sold online: tinyurl.com/qs6hkbz Psittica Afriuana - Lucimorning
OH has gone for his daily walk.
Chicken report: when OH went to check there were four eggs, from Pearl, Lottie, Dottie and Lilith, but one of the hens had crushed Lilith's. OH had to clean out the nest box.
We're so lucky, we have a fairly large garden, and No1 Son has a large allotment not far from where he lives. No2 Son lives in a place with no garden, and although he's getting some fresh air, he's also really lonely, which isn't good for his mental health.
