I O U

I keep reading about how much money the UK government has borrowed to '' put it's arms around it's citizens" or whatever trite phrase it's using at present, as are presumably other governments.
Can somebody please explain just who the lenders are 'cos they must have bottomless pockets.

Fire on.
Back home.
Went for a car ride into darkest Brittany & came home with a lamb.

Would you prefer that they go unreported? Incidents like this are reported in the regional paper several times a week, its such a problem that young women have formed local support groups on social media. The back story to this is that during the déconfinement the gyms were re-opened but with the v...

Re: Buying food and cosmetics healthily

Trouble with all this sort of stuff is the dilemmas they cause.
Imagine finding a product you have enjoyed eating for years which ostensibly has not harmed you is now listed as unhealthy.

Re: Covidrage

I expect that you do it quietly and without fuss like me Mysty, after all I will be shopping there again, I cant believe that nobody has ever taken me to task on my next visit, in fact I am quite dissapointed because hopefully a manager might actually listen to why I have done it so many times.
