It is ten past five in the afternoon and I have just accessed my blog, so my apologies for the delay in responding to comments and approving pingbacks. I’ll get on that as soon as I’ve published this.
It has been quite a day as we were up early for Hubby’s INR blood test which was the first of the day at 8.30. Allowing for the school run, we left home in plenty of time as we have further to travel now and arrived half an hour before the appointed time! Had we left home any later, we would have caught a lot more traffic, and may possibly have been late.
Good news, he is back in range and the next test isn’t for two weeks. Hurrah!!
Following on from the carnival on Saturday (so glad you enjoyed the pictures), we took a Covid test to play safe and are both in the clear. We went into the chemist today to get some more home kits which currently are free but will attract a fee (possibly the prescription charge of £9.35 per item though that has not been confirmed) by the end of the year.
From there, we decided to do a mini shop, mindful of the media being full of potential food shortages in the shops due to no CO2 production, a shortage of HGV drivers., and no-one to pick the produce from the fields. We didn’t spend a lot or stockpile, just topped up our meat drawer in the freezer and bought our monthly supply of UHT milk. We have noticed that is already in short supply and our local supermarket shelves have been empty.
We split our shop into three stores and should not have to buy anything other than bread, fruit or veg (no tomatoes LOL) for the next fortnight at least.
The headlines are also full of the gas and energy supply crisis, which is a worry as we approach Winter. I am so glad I got a fixed tariff sorted out last month which comes into effect on October 1st. Our D/D has been confirmed at the new price so we can ‘rest easy’ for two years.
We were home by midday and put some washing on as the weather was glorious, but got chatting with neighbours and so lunch was late. Today Hubby had lasagna and I had a tomato and mushroom pasta.
I had accounts to sort out and had some emails to attend to, so we’ve had a busy day!!
