More sunshine, more washing! I feel we have to make the most of it as the prospect of using the launderette is rather daunting with visitors still apparent.
I suppose I should take a recent picture of our washing line as the one above was taken shortly after we’d moved in three years ago and Hubby had just put my line up. The field that was looks more like a garden now.
New pictures (new washing line contents!!)
Hubby has finally got round to going through our battery box and checking those rechargeable that are still taking a charge. I have therefore been up to the supermarket to dispose of 15 batteries in the appropriate place, and in so doing came back with some chicken breast which is now cooking and some dog biscuits to tempt Maggie.
It would appear that the Co-op no longer do phone top ups on the tills and you have to go to the Post Office counter. I already realised they no longer did the tops up at the customer service till. There was a queue of 7 and three more people joined it, so the cashier told me the paper shop over the road did them. I thanked her and went in, no people so straight up to the counter and done in less than 2 minutes.
Town is heaving. It’s Market Day and there are people everywhere. Few are wearing masks outside, though it seems better in shops, but not much. People are making their own car parking spaces by literally stopping and abandoning their vehicles, so it’s chaos and many are short tempered. On top of that, the supermarket was busy and no-one was giving anyone an inch. The shelves are depleted of toiletries, vitamins and puzzle books (!), the fresh produce looks anything but, though I did manage to get 5 green bananas for 69p, and in the Co-op a lady was trying to get her mobility scooter down the sectioned off aisle and playing skittles with the makeshift barriers. A member of staff told her she wouldn’t fit and suggested she go to a wider aisle at self service. She said she didn’t want self service, so barged her way through to the queue I was in, which wasn’t much wider. Common sense is a myth now.
Whilst I’ve been out, Hubby has vacuumed and dusted, so the house was lovely and clean when I got back. I walked Maggie early and will walk her again once I publish this post.
We are going to try and change her eating habits to one meal a day at lunchtime so that we can give her the meds half an hour afterwards as she has to have them after food. Hopefully she will have her biscuits in the interim, but typically she has gone off the ones we’d just bought, hence the ones today which she did prefer until we couldn’t get them!
