Glad you're OK Hosta and OH is looking after you. Dove, I hate stud parking too and badly thought out and indicated diversions. Shopping's OK if I'm in the mood which isn't often. Not a shopaholic at all.
Verdun - EU rules apply to all EU businesses. Some adapt, some cheat and some go under. That's life with government of any sort be it local, regional, national or European. Worth noting also that the little jobsworths in Britain apply all those rules far more assiduously than their EU counterparts.
We have roast dinner on Sundays. Possum expects it (Capricorn so likes tradition) and OH likes it anyway. I've only recently started doing Yourkshire puds and now Poss wants them every week! Simple salmon and veggies tonight as the kitchen is in disarray and I'm shattered. It's a big farmhouse kitchen with some fitted cupboards but mostly not. Furniture all moved and cleaned and protected. Walls all sanded down and then vacced and steam cleaned.
Some filling been done already and floor washed for the 3rd time to collect plaster dust which will no doubt continue falling for days. I've done the hall while I was on to get all the dusty stuff done in in one go so it's a huge area of wall and floor.
In between dries, have taken the last of the roses and clems in pots from their shelter corner and put them in full sun and wind and rain. They've done well so far so I hope they'll be OK. OH has kept out of the way and gardened, cutting down miscanthus and other dead perennial stems and weeding.
Immigrants - most are genuine, escaping horrors but some are economic and some naugty infiltrators up to no good. On balance, we should be doing more to sort and help but on the understanding that our way of life gives personal freedoms and standards and opportunities for which we also have to share civil responsibilities and duties. They should not expect to come and impose their religion, values or politics on us as it is not our way and that's what got them into a mess in the first place.
It has turned cold and grey and damp now but the last few sunny days have worked wonders on the PSB and we should finally get enough of a picking for supper tomorrow if it stays sunny.
