It's a hearing aid called a wheat ear
I have experienced a mid winter whiteout on the high tundra between Alta and Skaidi, I tell you, it's no big deal there is nothing to see, anyway, but I must go back there as I think I left the lights on.

Given that UK can't produce enough food to feed its population I think maybe attitudes to farmers needs a rethink. Brexit is just around the corner. 8-)

And with a 20% deficit in the wheat harvest it just gets better:

Covid 19
Brexit
Reduced harvest
Record debt.

Then, to top it all, a complete walker (possibly misspelt) as a PM.

Short of a nuclear strike I don't really know how much worse it can get.

A nuclear strike would probably signal the end of all the other problems.

You should try moving to France, it's quite nice here!

Funny you should say that. OH is shocked by the way the UK, or at least England, is fast becoming not only a joke but an illegal regime.

She even asked if the house in Waterford is still for sale and how much did I think ours here is worth. The N Yorks house has been on the market for a couple of weeks and we've had serious interest but no offers. 😒

I really don't want to live out my years here. It was hard to think of letting our Dales house go but that is on the market. It's even harder to think of letting the Lincs one go but I reckon if we got a decent offer we'd be off. I've suggested marketing it at 15% over what it's worth and if someone is prepared to pay that then we sell and take it from there.

I think we are a hair's breadth from preparing to move for the 18th time!
