Apparently not, they have to be collected by a "named person" from the surgery.

A yukky smell appeared in the kitchen a couple of days ago. We searched high and low and couldn't find the source.

Then Pol told me she had spilt single cream in the fridge.

Some had run down the drain and into the evaporator tray on top of the motor.

PEEE EWWW! The trays are a bugger remove as they are often clipped and glued into place. And they are not available as spare parts.

I had to ask Asda security for video from their car park, No joy as the cameras are all off for servicing.

I returned to my car with my shopping and heard "Excuse me, are you travelling alone?" I turned to see a very well-dressed guy in a flash car with dark windows next to mine.

"Yes I am" I told him.

"Then I have some bad news for you. A young lad came over to your car, pulled out a small knife, and prised something round off one of your wheels. I beeped my horn and he legged-it".

The tw@t had stolen one of the hub covers.

The council still hadn't called to fix the upstairs flush, so I called them, and they apologised as their contractor had marked it as "complete".

So they got the contractor to call and get the job done today. But their boss called and offered next Wednesday!

I told him we will be in lockdown as of Saturday morning until the following Saturday. No visitors or leaving the house.

So he will "try to find a plumber" and call back this morning.

Meanwhile, all of us here has to have a covid test 3 days before the missus' op next Tuesday. No-one has called to arrange them, so I'll to chase that too.

And on top of all that, the lad wants to get to Sainsburys today to exchange the gas bottles for his Sodastream.

Apart from a couple of hours shopping each week, nothing will change.

The sleepers HoN ordered the other day arrived a week early this morning. They placed them on the driveway and HoN (and I) had to move them to the back garden. 31 - 3m x 195mm x 95mm softwood tanalised sleepers. And one hardwood one the same size, as they must have added it by mistake. That one took about twice as long to move as it weighed about 50kg not 30kg! Took almost all day to move them all.

One waterbutt has been almost totally emptying overnight. SO I have been attacking it over a couple of weeks, thinking it was the tap seal.

I was inside it earlier and saw a line of light.

A 3" split.

Patched with flexible waterproof glue.

Fingers crossed.

Nipped over to Aldi. As I came out, 2 small gangs of 18-20 somethings were kicking-off. It seems one lot nicked a motorbike off the other and then burned it "as a message".

Whatever way you come in to the city, it's always packed in both directions at rush hour.

Did you go via Gabalfa Interchange, along the A48(M) then turn off near the top of the long hill to the garden centre roundabout?

A tall guy, all in black with his hood up, kept walking past the house looking furtively about. After an hour of this, he dropped to his knees and started rocking back-and-forth similar to muslim prayer. He then started wailing. I called over but got no response, so I called the police.

20 minutes later, a policeman phoned to say that I was not alone in finding his behaviour odd, but he had vanished.

Today I am shopping.

I've had two tins of emulsion to paint the bottom of the walls in the living room upstairs for the last six years 😳 and I intended starting it the other day.
A week ago, I found the paint
I found the roller
Day 3 and I moved a tin downstairs
Day 4 and I stared at it. Thought how I'd have to move the furniture and move the dog.
Day 5, son visited so I didn't start it and told him not to move the furniture
Today I'm looking at it
Tomorrow I'm blood testing so can't do it
Wednesday,  nurses are due, can't do it.

It was a problem of sorts. The installer had run the power behind wall panelling and not screwed the RCCB to the wall, but stuck it with silicone mastic!

I took me ages to notice the huge lift that had recently been fitted (free) as a stairlift was not suitable for him.

Of course. No accidents since 1979 (black ice) and under 2,000 miles a year helps. Plus a car they all say is worth £50, but would cost me £5k to replace.

A neighbour pays that per month for a smaller car because he commutes (you have to tell the insurer) and has had several accidents and traffic fines.

Morrisons is by far the most expensive for tobacco. Annual budget in a couple of weeks, and that is usually pre-empted by a price hike by the baccy companies.

Lidl, Sainsburys and Asda.

A car rammed a schoolbus a few yards behind me, I reckon it was the bus driver's fault as it passed me around 40mph in a 20mph zone.

Took Pol for her blood test. As usual, the entire hospital site was in gridlock, with parked delivery vans making it worse.

The "drive thru" testing spot was closed again, as it is "too cold for the nurses to sit outside". That meant I had to reverse out and met with 3 cars trying to get in. Pandemonium!

The prescriptions weren't ready, despite the text saying they were at 8:15 this morning.

The missus was alone for the booster, loads of no-shows.

Emptied the boot and gave the car a once-over. Service and MOT tomorrow.

Now I have the washing-up to do, and then the twins' accounts.

One of the new young couples have had scaffolding put up as contractors will be changing their wall-ties next week. So they have taken the opportunity to change the guttering themselves.

I saw they were about to replace a bracket at the same level, so went over to tell them that it needs to be higher, as the gutters always sagged at that point. They took my advice on how to do that using a tight string, and have now seen I was right.

Wait in all day for parcel . Apparently its coming by Yodel. So got up at 7am, zoomed the dog round the fields at breakneck speed. Tracked the parcel, its out for delivery. Got home and tracked, its being loaded? Ran her round the block so fast that she's dizzy and I'm in need of my inhaler.
Now it's estimated delivery today. The worst delivery company ever.

"I see you have a credit of £8.45, and that you last topped-up from £2.20 with £10 in September 2019".

Then I jumped to ASDA PAYG, 4p per text, minute or 1Mb. I just have to use it once every 180 days to keep it active.

The binmen woke me at 6:40, so I got up.

Defrosted the car and got the missus to the hospital by 7:15 for her op.

Did the shopping, unloaded it, then the hospital called to say the missus was ready to come home.

Collected her, put away the shopping.

And the missus just told me she has an 8:30 clinic to check her out tomorrow morning!

Just dropped the missus off at her clinic. She shouldn't be long, so then we can collect a prescription and drop off a letter to the GP.

I opened a bank account for the missus today. But when I tried to transfer money to it, it wanted to send me an OTP (one time pass) to my mobile. But I had just changed numbers (from Virgin to ASDA).

So I went tried to change the number on their site, and it said it was sending OTPs to my new number, but nothing ever turned-up. So I spent 34 minutes in a queue to talk to someone. Even she couldn't do it!

I'll try again in a couple of days.

The car battery is fully charged. All the short journeys have been sucking the life out of it, and the new trickle-charger isn't up to the job. So I'll rig the smart charger to be run in the house, with the trickle charger leads fed outside. That means disconnecting the battery each time the car is out of use for a few days.

Cracked on with housework today, stripped beds, washed bed linen, remade beds. Cleaned bathrooms, weeded in garden, cleaned kitchen, hoovered. Walk will have to wait until tomorrow, I normally try to do at least 2 miles a day now. Believe me, compared to this time last year, that's huge!

I finally figured out why the charger was not working on the car battery. Not only had the croc clip been torn off, but the copper inside the cable had stretched and snapped.

And I also finally found out why I couldn't chat to Santander once I was logged-in. It was the Opera browser thinking the chat button was a pop-up. So now the new phone is set and I got an OTP to transfer money to the missus' new account.

It's being dropped by millions, and so the company's shares have been dropping hard. Too much competition...... and piracy.
