    I never get too close. I get the feeling that bales are about to roll off the back. We have a low bridge on the Nottingham Melton Road. Local drivers seem to know their clearance down to the inch. There is a high load warning system and it goes off if there is the slightest risk of a load hitting the bridge.

    I wanted a new Echo Dot as my old one packed up probably because Ganzi kept standing on it so I was looking at a 1st or 2nd generation but turned out I could get a 4th generation on 6 monthly instalments interest free although when my overtime comes through next month I will settle the account

    It arrived tonight and the set up was zero problem, I used the app on my phone to add a new device and 30 seconds later Alexa said "Hi"

    I'm really impressed with the new speaker and as its round Ganzi won't be able to stand on it

    Plus a 60-day Audible subscription so grab some big books and cancel before it runs out I don't use it much just sometimes when I can't sleep so that'll cover me for another year or two

    Nigel Farage has been moaning about being unable to get any petrol. He was also involved in a collision with a van. I do hope the van driver is OK.

    I'm sure I have some he can have. Now, who has the tyre and the matches?

    I'm sure there are plenty of generous folk who would be more than willing to donate to a good cause! :D

    Three o'clock was a perfect time to shop. Everyone went round in double-quick time and same through the check-outs. Perfect. So much better than my usual 10.30am.

    Learning Ethelred the Ill-Named

    and you possibly benefited from mid day deliveries. Well, you would have been here at our co-op. The important aspect is to be finished before all the covideous students leave our local academy. (South Wolds Keyworth). It seems that students (we can't call them pupils any-more) can leave the premises if they are free for the last lesson of the day. In my day (at LGS) if we had free study then we were expected to be in the library or on the sports field or gym, or tennis court (for that one had to be very special), and for sixth form members of the photographic society even in the dark room.

    Yesterday afternoon I was able to buy petrol without queueing more than five minutes.:)

    I got some 99 locally the other day without having to queue and it was 3p a litre cheaper than a couple of weeks ago. 141.9p isn't that much worse than regular 95:). (The V-Power I got elsewhere was 155.9p)

    Finally had a women's Paris-Roubaix, albeit a pitifully short 116km which is less than half the men's parcour.

    And the prize for the winner is just one twentieth of the prize money for the men’s race tomorrow.

    I went across to wish my neighbour a happy 91st birthday. We both got a bit weepy. She wanted me to come in, but I didn't. So we chatted and sniffled at the doorway. How I hate this virus!

    If you're sniffling most likely a cold. ;)

    I have to say we were both having a blub.

    *Sigh* I can't give this a "like", but you do have my sympathy.
