Enjoy the Bee Gees 1st of May from 1969
It has been a good day so far. I took our friend up for her booster jab, this time it was the Moderna vaccine and although her appointment allotment was 10:20 to 10:30, she wasn’t actually seen until 11am. I’m glad one of the nurses we knew was on duty and I expressed my concern about her standing in a queue for a long time, so she got her a wheelchair. She was able to propel this with her feet while she waited rather than have to wait for someone to push her. I did my bit of shopping then went back and settled in behind her until she was seen.
When I took her home, I took Kela for a walk while I was on my feet, which left me the rest of the day clear to snooze or put my feet up.
Hubby had taken Maya for a walk when I left this morning and was very good for him.
It would appear there is a shortage now of chicken stock cubes. This could be Brexit, Covid or Ukraine which has been blamed for everything else, but my money is on the avian flu virus which as been rampant over here and we have disease control zone signage everywhere. No such thing as a Free Range Egg at the moment as no birds are allowed outside, so they are now being sold as Barn Eggs…….. plus price rise.
I am stunned at the rise in prices recently. Flora light margarine was £1.19 for 500g and is now £1.59 in Lidl. Elsewhere it is over £2.20 I tried an alternative olive oil based spread which was OK, but I won’t buy it again. Fresh fruit this morning was horrendously expensive so I didn’t buy any. Even though I shopped shortly after opening time (10am on a Sunday), many of the shelves were bare and as for their freezer selections, well, not a lot was left. There were two cheap cheesecakes left in the cabinet, and one looked like it had been dropped on the floor and run over by a couple of trolleys. How they could leave that for sale is beyond me.
