It is 4.30 in the afternoon and it’s raining.
After being unable to get fuel locally yesterday, we had a field trip today, going to the bank, doing a little bit of shopping, and walking Maya in a crowded High Street. The latter was not brilliant to start with, but she did get better eventually.
It would appear our supermarket was not the only one out of fuel, though the other two major supermarkets in town were on a par with each other at 178.9p a litre. We are currently getting around 64 mpg which is not bad at all for a diesel vehicle with a 1600 engine.
We often pass a shop that sells essentials oils and natural smellies. The manageress took a shine to Maya when we first got her and always comes out to say hello. Today she had a lovely mix of bergamot, grapefruit, lemon and ylang ylang going which was very relaxing, so we have treated ourselves to an aromatic diffuser and the oils to have at home. It was an extravagance, but hopefully should help Hubby relax, and as the dog fell asleep on the shop floor, may well come in handy when we have fireworks. We’ve had a couple of thunderstorms which have not affected her too much other than to take notice, but fireworks might be different, so we shall see. We’ve mixed it as per the instructions and both my beloveds are fast asleep.
