I love it here but whenever the outside world intrudes I despair. If it isn’t one thing it’s another. This morning I did my monthly shop. Bread was fifty percent cheaper in Morrisons than Aldi and so were grapefruit. Chicken quarters were half the price in Aldi and Aldi sardines were cheap so I guess it’s well worth shopping around. I like Aldi and I like the lad selling the Big Issue who sits by the trolleys. He is better dressed than I am but he still gets my trolley pound as last month he lent me a pound for my trolley.
Dithery Dave is appointing a lot more disGraces; he announced this revelation in Singapore. Perhaps he thought he was far enough away not to be brought to account. He is still in the northern Hemisphere by a degree or so. I am sure he promised to reduce the size of government but maybe increasing it doesn’t count if it is announced far from home. I can’t see him building a new shed to pop them all in; he looks fit to drop when out for a walk. I blame Samantha. More expense on top of their pay rise. I think it would be a good idea to means test MP’s salaries, that way at least the working class ones could get paid and the silver spoon brigade could show the rest of us how altruistic they are.
Morrisons roast in the bag thinghies are half price, nearly as much as chicken quarters in Aldi but I deserve a bit of luxury.
Has anyone noticed that Amazon put the price of books up if you start reading a series? Happen it’s just me being paranoid. I have been reading a few whodunnits by Kate Ellis and they have doubled in price. I’ll read somebody else and see if they come down again.
I got back to inspect the work on the combine and see it needs a new injector pipe and a drive belt. I can see me having to silver solder the new injector pipe to the old olives. I bet Andrew is wishing he had never found the oil leak. I just love refurbishing stuff when I’m not paying for the bits. I could really go to town on this machine with Ken’s money. I was looking in the book and it can process three tons of grain an hour. Barley is fetching about £1.50 a ton, be cheaper to plough it back in but then what would I do for whisky and beer.
I have done you a quick flower arrangement for today, Tomorrow is gong to be hot so I will cart a hundredweight of gear up to the overgrown pond for lots of dragonfly images and video. I have plenty of sound track that just need synching to moving pictures and I am really looking forward to that job.
Todays posy is Barley, Smooth Dead Nettle and something else.
Jeremy Corbyn is still doing well and with a bit of luck will be Prime Minister in waiting.
