Hi Penny
thanks for the info on the sausages! Yes we do have a Sainsbury store now (been open about a year) and I go in normal times every six weeks as I drop Holly spaniel at her hairdresser and have two hours to kill until she emerges clean and none smelly.I will look the next time I go especially as I will probably have even more time to kill whilst the poor groomer tries to put right my home made efforts to clip a spaniel during lock down!

Hi Penny

The packets that my Fathers undies came in always said "singlet" but we called them "vests". Obviously our USA brethren will be confused as to why he wore a"waistcoat" under his shirt. The great divide rears it's head again.

Penny you are never going to believe this coincidence! This morning's Frasier was the Valentine edition from which your clip of Niles came. My David is addicted to Frasier!!

I think that coleslaw expands in the fridge as there is always more left over than you think and inventive combinations are required to use it all up!! Enjoy the cheese combo Penny.

I' ve just got back from a supermarket shop (first one for a week) and whilst in the outside queue saw two oldies arrive with a trolley and when they realised that there was a queue decided to give the trolley attendant their one back whilst saying  that they wouldn't bother if the queue was so long! Really essential shopping that they went out for then? Mind you at least it stopped them joining in with a couple of others who were asking each other if anybody had died yet in Kendal!!!!!! All in all a really jolly trip out but at least I don't need to go for anything else for at least a week.

Penny the English newsagents are allowed to stay open. I expect it is because some people don't have the internet and the Government need to disseminate the information in as many ways as possible. I have seen features on the net about paper boys still delivering but that may vary according to the boys and the shops and how concerned they are.
I am doing my permitted exercise session as a dog walk in as quiet an area as possible which is fairly easy to achieve in a small town and especially as we are surrounded by fields and woodland. How difficult it must be in cities. I count my blessings.

Have a good rest and then look at the nice pictures of birds that you usually take.

Yes Linda it was Beales. I escaped nearly 18 months ago as soon as I heard about the last management buy out as I foresaw the consequences. I love the new job  as it is a place that makes people happy and we have very few moaning minnies! Hopefully it will survive this enforced closure.

 My previous job was in the home wares department of a small department store and as much as possible I kept to the cook shop area as serving customers in the linen section could be stressful.People would ask for a duvet but when you approached the pile of boxes they would get cross and start saying "No! A duvet!" and so you assumed they meant a duvet cover and veered towards those but then we had the tricky conversation about the size of their bed - so many have no idea! Much easier to sort out a spoon or a set of crockery!
I look at this post and realise that it is a good job that I am approaching retirement(not fast enough however)as my patience is obviously wearing very thin these days!!

Word Games / Re: Few ideas on the usage of taxi apps

Thanks for that guys. We only have a teeny tiny garden but of course the dog needs walking and just above our house is a big green area suitable for tennis ball throwing. Luckily the local dog walkers seem to be acting sensibly so far. It is quite difficult to tire out my spaniel so a few trips up the hill each day will pass a fair bit of time. In any case it just has to be put up with and Chi will be a big help.There is, as my Mother would have said "worse trouble at sea"!

In the last few minutes I have heard that the shop I work in is closing due to the virus so I suppose it is a shame those tax rebate e mails are a scam!! We hope that we will get the 80% wages that the government announced but of course they may decide to shed people anyway.Hey ho need to keep smiling!
