Thank you to everyone for comments about books yesterday. Sorry for not replying - I had the sort of day that hopefully won't be repeated very soon. More on this later..............
Now..................shall I write about all the strange things regarding Strange Times that I've heard this week...........?
"There could be queues of up to 7,000 lorries waiting in Kent to cross the channel during the first few weeks of January, with a No Deal Brexit"
"People mustn't visit inside another persons home in Scotland"
"No one is allowed in a pub or restaurant after 10pm"
"Huge increase in purchases of toilet rolls reported at Cash and Carry stores this week"
"University students may not be allowed home for Christmas."
"Half the population of Wales is in a type of Lockdown"
No, No and No!! I'll just write what's happened up the end of a lane in Mid Suffolk......................
Two late flowering gladioli on the table this week. The same colour as the first. There should be 2 different colours but only these gorgeous dark pink have appeared.
Hooray for Ian, the boiler repair man, who arrived much later than planned on Monday due to problems at the previous job. He apologised for being so late but I said it was just good that he could get here before the weather changes to cold later in the week. He repaired and serviced the boiler and said did I know the boiler is nearly 40 years old (blimey!) and it could give up anytime. He's reminded me of this every time it's serviced. He doesn't do new boiler installation but gave me details of 2 companies that are reliable. That means the boiler and the sewer need doing sooner rather than later......Expensive...............The outside of the house could do with painting too.....sometime.
