Day 99 – Disappointments

I have never hears about Jack Dart until today, but it appears that in addition to being a ocal Councillor in Torbay, he also helps people with their social media presence. The above graphic is one of his and I think that it is good that people like him have the time and energy to collect up all these past promises of our dreadful MPs and put them together so informatively.

In other news we have had two disappointments today. Our greengrocery and dairy supplier who has been so good, and so reliable hitherto has let us down somewhat in that two yoghurts opened yesterday had blue mould growing on top or on the lid, and two large containers of whole milk have gone sour before their best before dates and have had to be poured away. What to do now ? Treat these as an aberration and keep on with them, or now that Tesco is getting a bit easier to deal with, stop using them and get everything we can from Tesco ? A moral dilemma. Use your local businesses they urge us – yes – but they must be “fit for purpose”.

The second disappointment was that we put out a letter for the Postie to collect, but the weather turned inclement so I brought it in and put it by the porch window. Our usual Postie looks for letters there and takes them, but we have a great variety of Posties now, and today’s man missed it. So we must try again tomorrow and hope to catch him as he arrives – but they come at such erratic times that this is difficult to do.

But, we soldier on.

England is publishing dates for the relaxation of COVID 19 rules, but Scotland and Wales are, quite rightly, doing their own thing so we have to wait and see what Mrs. Sturgeon comes up with in the coming days. It is a terrible thing when you cannot trust your national Government to tell the truth or to act from the best motives. We are in the position that so many people lived in during all those years when they were behind the Iron Curtain. The secret police are not in evidence yet and let us hope it stays that way.
