We have a hose pipe ban starting the 5th April?
37p increase on a packet of cigarettes in the budget!
We have no petrol because the Tanker Drivers ARE NOT on strike but the government boobed and sent everyone into a complete panic for nothing.
Cigarettes are now in cupboards behind doors in the Supermarket…will it be wine next, how on earth will we know which to buy if we can’t see them?
How come there is no possible way I can park anywhere near the entrance to the supermarket because a: I’m not disabled and b: I don’t have a brood of kids….so if I want just a pint of milk I have to park the car and walk nearly half a mile to get to the shop! I have no problem with reserved parking spaces especially for the disabled but for these mothers that turn up in a massive 4×4 with a 16-year-old, please!!
This month Postage Stamps prices will go up by 30% for 1st class and 39% for 2nd class but if you buy stamps that simply say 1st or 2nd Class (ie with no price value printed on them) they are valid in perpetuity!!
What is going on in the world? Or should I narrow that down to the UK?
And now even nature has thrown us a fastball, snow is forecast for tomorrow, can you believe it?
Everything is totally mad…and what drives me really mad is the way it now seems to wind me up…I have never been a political person (at all) it must be my age, all of this just turns me into a grumpy old woman and I realise that I’m nagging and moaning…it’s not good for my health and not good for the Nation’s moral!!!
So having had a little rant, just a little one, I shall hopefully cheer myself and others up with some of the more beautiful things that nature has to offer. These are just some of the wonderful things I saw today that made me smile, and for a while forgot that we are living in a mad and crazy world!!
I’m delighted to have some Forget-me-nots coming up in the garden and with the sun shining through the leaves, I thought they were stunning.
Oh and a little update on the Robins….by perching on a chair at a distance I was able to get this shot…very poor quality but I didn’t want to disturb….I think this confirms that we have eggs…do you agree?? You can just make out the little black eye…ooh I feel like a new mum looking at a baby scan!!
And so tomorrow we shall all be back in hibernation!! The heating will be on, I’ll be putting the electric blanket back on the bed, we’ll be eating comfort food and the salad will be going mouldy in the fridge drawer….so snuggle up and keep warm…..:)
