Well today has been a strange one. There hasn’t been much happening on the property sale. I’m waiting for the contract basically then all should move quickly.
Soooo…. I decided to pop into town, maybe pick up some hand sanitiser. Have a coffee. I daren’t buy much else as I will just have to pack it for the new place. So I start with the search for hand sanitiser… Sainsbury’s, Tesco’s, Savers, Poundland, Boots et al. Nothing, nada, bugger all but empty shelves so in the true British spirit I’ve improvised. Bought a spray bottle and some vodka. I’m going to mix 8 parts water, 1 part vodka and 1 part TCP disinfectant. That should do the trick. If it doesn’t I can always drink the vodka…lol.
There was, I noticed, also a kind of Blitz spirit around the stores. Herds of plucky British souls wandering round and gazing at the empty gaps on the shelves where the sanitiser should have been longingly. I had a couple of good conversations with some of them and shared my homemade recipe with them.
Anyway, sanitiserless, I decided to retire to my local Costa’s for a double shot latte and a slice of walnut and carrot cake. Luvverly.
It was kind of nice to hear the strains of ‘Happy Birthday’ coming from Costa’s toilets. Filled me with a warm glow that so many people were sharing their birthdays today.
I did visit myself and lo and behold, a large bottle of hand sanitiser. Should I nick it? I was tempted but no I didn’t. I am actually surprised it was still there.
And so, stuffed with cake and fully caffeinated I headed for home. And joy. My contract has been delivered. I have to fill in a few questions about the conservatory and then send it back. I will drop it in later. Yayyyyyy. Toodle pip.
