Just a quick post so I can say I have posted, but it’s just a placeholder and no brain cells will be harmed in the writing of this post.
I sent a parcel to the Ionian Islands today, which was a first, followed by one to Canada. That was as good as it got. No more than average stupidity was demonstrated in the phone calls that came in and all the customers who called in person seemed fairly normal.
That is a mere 79 words. I have already drifted into sleep once whilst writing them, which tends to suggest that they lack grip.
We had home made mushroom and thyme soup for lunch and there is enough left over for tomorrow. (it was my turn to have a half day today). For tea we had veggie burgers again, with a little salad. It’s convenient that way as I can order cobs with the Friday shopping delivery and they are still fresh on Saturday night. The veggie burgers were a bit too big and overlapped the buns. Like eucalyptus trees, they adopted a self-pruning strategy and several bits dropped off as we ate them in front of the TV.
I see that the Russians have imposed travel restrictions on a number of our politicians and will no longer allow them to visit Russia. This has a bit of a tit for tat look to it, and slightly misses the point. For one thing, doing it second just makes you look like a child in the school playground, and for another, who cares? Compared to the number of Russian politicians who have had their options for foreign travel drastically trimmed, this really is a very small ban.
I like the analogy to eucalyptus trees.
Yes, I doubt many will be crying about the Russian travel ban.
🙂 The amount of travelling I’ve done recently they could ban me from Leicestershire and it wouldn’t affect me.
The travel ban is part of a deep laid Russian plan to get Boris re-elected by making him seem important.
It’s working, I’m warming to him. Though I am committed to voting Green for the foreseeable future.
Good decision. I am green too except where tactical voting might bend my decision.
MY sister is a big tactical voter. I am a simple man and just pick a party. 🙂
Your final paragraph could have been written by Jackie, who has also mentioned taking her ball home
She should be Prime Minister. Her grasp of foreign affairs is clearly better than Boris’s. Of course, Foreign Affairs and Holiday Romance tend to get confuse in his mind . . .:-)
Homemade mushroom soup with thyme sounds very good! I like the self-trimming veggie burgers. 🙂
We ate well until tonight, when I made a fry up for the sake of simplicity. Now feel full and ashamed . . .
