We had shortages in supermarkets due to Covid last year as people panic bought – this was world wide.
As you might have heard the UK had problems again with deliveries for food and petrol as due to Brexit there were not enough lorry drivers to deliver goods needed.
Hence we had a petrol shortage. This crises is only in the UK and not related to Covid.
The message that petrol will be short caused of course panic buying, panic filling up with petrol;
The queues were terribly long and caused impossibly many traffic jams.
On my travels, by train of course, I saw this sign in front of a coffee stall.
An inventive selling idea
🙂 We have not lost our humour 🙂
P.S. the situation has improved and there seem to be more petrol again as the Army is now helping out.
Learn something new they say.
It is never too late to learn something new.
Since I was younger I was always fascinated by the Double Bass.
When I saw it in an orchestra or just in a small Jazz band I wanted to have a try myself on picking.
This dream has finally come true with the help of my sister.
I have a Double Bass on hire for a while at home and I am learning the notes and scales.
Learn something new.
Try something different.
Convince yourself that you have no limits.

A bit of DIY turned out more complicated than I thought.
I wanted to add coving in my dining room and bought enough for it.
Yes, I have already run out as I cut so many angles the wrong way round. 😦
The long stretches were fine, now round the chimney breast – it is so difficult.
slide the slider to see both images
Inside angles, outside angles – wrong angles….. nothing fits….
Thomas knows what to do!
Following his example,
I source some more coving,
think really hard before cutting,
I know I can do it!
Even if you stumble
you are still going forward!
Even with setbacks
we can go on and achieve the impossible.
Don’t give up whatever you do.
Go for it!
Found this picture in a toilet near a nature beauty spot.
Enjoy your wash day
whatever you are washing 🙂
A close up, can you guess what it is?
I make myself a fruit smoothie everyday.
