Not really a day to look too long at the sky. Very grey and your face is going to get very very very wet. A good day to stand under a tree. Bad weather also doesn’t stop the birds. The weather clearly had put this one in a very grumpy mood.
Today was supposed to be another homeschooling day. The key word there was ‘Supposed’. Nothing. Absolutely nothing. That’s becoming a bit of a regular feature now. So let’s just move on…..
Today was also food delivery day. Always funny to see what turns up. Over the last couple of years the range available has shrunk, the unavailability has increased and wow it’s got expensive. Two hours of forensic analysis on the order he managed to limit this weeks shopping cart increase to just under £5. But given the price of diesel, actually not driving to the supermarket has probably saved about a million pounds.
The food then turned up (unlike the school lessons). Some spectacular substitutes this week. Sweet Potatoes unavailable so salad potatoes sent. Turnip not available so organic potatoes sent. No carrots available so some baby potatoes sent. That’s on top of the jacket potatoes, potato waffles and chips that I had already ordered. I guess it’s potatoes on the menu this week, its a good job we like them.
